Probs the last time I put the jeep on its side - I went over a bank maybe a little too fast, there was a massive hole on the other side of the bank that snatched the wheel outta my hands. I ended up turning up an impossible climb, with no control, and the jeep came down onto its side in slow motion. Minor damage, just lost an arch which I threw in the back and bolted back on when I got home!

Thankfully no-one saw it happen, but I still needed help to get it back on all fours oshocked

When some idiot in a 4 x 4 pulled in front of me, decided to break really hard (on her massive disk brakes) just to do a turn in the road. I had theAX at the time, so in the raing brakes are hardly worth much.

Luckily i kind of expected it from a mother driving a 4x4

Lol, Ive stopped traffic on that roundabout before whilst people have had to wait for me to turn round in the old Denzil Sierra wink

Worst moment, prolly joining the motorway by mine in the 2.0 Sierra (With Cossie LSD laugh ) in the wet, totally mis-judging conditions, getting a proper tank slapper going and going off backwards in to the armco at about 60.

Yeah, it did write the car off frown

I was absolutely flying (I was only doin 30 really officer!) got to the corner and the back end decided it didnt like it there no more and wanted a race with the front end!!! anyway cut a long story short my car starting spinning like a ballerina! not sure how many times it spun I was to busy watching my life flash before my eyes thinking I was going to end up in the golf course! but by the time I came to a complete stop I was facing the right way at the traffic lights on the line with the lights on red! didnt hit a single thing and I wasnt the only car on the bit of road! god knows how!

Probably when i came off the exit of a roundabout on the way to chester and didnt realise the cones carried on all the way down the road, i pulled straight into the right hand lane and went thru the cones.

This was in my old escort. MK4 Eclipse 1.3. Was all good fun i guess.

Had a pretty spectacular one last night on the way to work. I was going through the two-mills traffic lights on the A540 in the chester direction, the lights had just turned green as I approached them, there was no-one in the overtaking lane so me and a passat moved across as we had kept our speed up (the passat was in front of me). There was a line of about 15 cars in the other lane, just setting off through the lights. As we overtook them - travelling at about 70mph - a micra in the other lane, doing about 5mph, decided to move across... directly in front of the passat. He slammed on his brakes and his horn, and at the same time swerving to try and avoid the the other car. As soon as the driver of the micra heard the horn they swerved back into their own lane, while the driver of the passat narrowly missed the traffic light-post and broad sided his car, then he swerved the other way and broad sided it in the other direction before coming to a halt right in the middle of the cross roads. I remind you I was right behind him while all this happened, and if scooby didn't fit those performance brakes for me I would have been sitting on the fellas lap! I stopped about 18" away from his divers side door. We both looked at each other in disbelief before carrying on.

Still haven't got over it!

My mate was driving his cav with me in the front and my mate in the back. He was driving round that corner on the road before Clatterbridge and after Willaston, and the back end comes out. He slams the brakes on causing the car to spin 6 times. If you can imagine the curve, how we managed to follow the curve round whilst spinning and gone into the ditch is beyond me. We ended up the wrong way. We then went to the Pub to calm our nerves.

My mate once collided with a TR7 who was overtaking on a bend. The car went over the top, decapitated the driver in the process, his car somersaulted a few times and landed in a field. Everyone else in the car apart from him died. oshocked

Jimbo you lucky lad. Stationmiek sounds a little nasty was the driver of the TR7 to blame.
I crashed my stockcar (british hotrod it was a mk2 escort) into the metal fence at stoke at about 70mph that hurt stopped my playing footy for good and had to be cut from the car but that was years ago. Also was a car with one of my stupid friends who crashed a cortina into a micra and drove off. PULLED THE HANDBRAKE UP ON A CORNER and sideswipped the micra pc and lost his licence for a year.

Tr7 was doing the overtaking, didn't have time to react, just hit it head on! He can't remember any of it, just what the witnesses saw.

My worst moment was in the scrape on the motorway, both cars doin within 5mph of eachother but as i swerved away from him-deflecting of his car in the process- the car fishtailed for about 100 metres before i got it back, i cudda span out and went up the verge either side, luckily if that have had happened i woulda been fine as the motorway was quiet so nothin wudda came after me. That was a scary day but luckily only cost 400 quid (for a botched ****ing repair job)

MY MOST scary but completely harmless event was the beginnin of the year when i went into a corner on a private ring road at about 85, the corner was never that tight in my memory and i dont remember the lump in the road. Cocked a Front wheel in the air so the car just understeered of the road,dropped a few inches onto pretty bumpy grass,ass flew out,grass driftin took place,then back up onto the road at about 50. The noises it made i thought the whole kit had been removed as well as the radiator and messed up geometry, very luckily for me there was no damage, a hell of a lot of clumps of mud in my kit tho!

Miek eek , Was it the people in the TR7 that lost their lives or your mates?
