That's a real shame, hope whoever it was got out OK.

I spent the day with Justin Pressland and his GT, it's an amazing car with so much torque it's hard to comprehend! Superbly engineered too.

Yea, I saw that. There must be a way of getting around that. Many cars from the past have been almost totally destroyed and brought back, for example the Jaguar XJ13.
