Hit and run on my Williams earlier this week.

Someone tried to overtake me on a country road, oncomming traffic meant no space and he side swiped me.

Managed to stay upright but lost front panel around headlight and right hand panel damaged and heatshield kaput.

They drove off like a bat out of hell.

I'm still standing though.

Sorry to hear that, main thing is you're ok; any witnesses or did you get the number?

No elmstones I was too busy trying to keep the old girl upright.

BTW Is it an MOT failure to have gaffer tape holding a panel together?

Nope. Should be fine.

Unbelievable that they just tore off like that. Probably had no insurance at all at a wild guess. At least you were OK.

Very sorry to hear about this, well done for holding her up though.

Oo-er.  Glad you are ok Greeno.  Let's hope they get back what they gave you and your C1 tenfold, that is the cops pick them up for something and book 'em.  :)
