Well guys...I had quite a ride this weekend.

The car was in awesome shape with all 500hp...and we were actually in the lead. We were excited about kicking some ass over the weekend, but it was stopped short.

On the 3 stage we were coming down a straight and the ass end came loose. John tried to correct to no avail. We ended up putting the rear of my side into the ditch at about 110mph. It then projected us to the other side of the road where we then rolled 3 times....:biggest: I had hoped that after the rear hit we might stop...but dang..kept going. Ended up on the drivers side.

I hear spectators from somewhere saying..you want a push over...and I yell yes. They start rocking us..and about the 5th try we end up on our wheels. We drive down the road a bit to a safe area to check things out. Appears to be not a happy car...coolant leak somewhere. We put some water in the car after a few minutes of thinking...and try it again. Well it seems like we might give it a go.....

We were only a short distant from the finish...how frustrating to say the least....
In service we found coolant on the #5 spark plug, so we were done for the weekend. I have yet to see pictures of the car...but I will post them as soon as I get them!!

Lots of fun...

d'oh! just remember, as a co-driver, its your duty to make sure that if the driver crashes, its on their side of the car :)

that's too bad that your weekend got cut short but still, riding in a 500bhp volvo has to be fun even if it means seeing the world upside down :D

any video?
