well yeah not much to say, but going down country road, chucking down with rain so slowed down to 40, saw the end of the road triangle sign thing only few metres ahead, emergency stop, skid, next thing i know im in a ditch, person behind has done the same, crashed into me pushed me further into the ditch, it has held up very well, just hope its nothing major like suspension/chassis, looks wise its just the bumper, headlight, no damage to rear. my back is ****ing killing me :(

Bad Luck, hope your spines ok, guy behind was probably just fixated on your boot lid rather than driving for himself so just followed you in. Car will live again, Puntos the starbug of cars!

if it wasn't for the fact this was as predictable as jodie marsh dropping her knickers every 5 minutes, i'd be feeling...........schadenfreude..........

I'm missing why this was so predictable, are you just a new driver? Or still learning? Has your car got an MOT? Whats on your boot lid?

(I've been off the forums for a while!)

its the classic example of too much speed.
the triangle thing being a give way sign at a junction. if you slowed to 40 you were going too fast for the conditions,road ahead and your skill level.
lets put aside you had been told to not drive the car.
break it for parts since it was goosed anyway,put it towards a mechanicaly sound car and start again.

it was probably one of his illegally driving mates and they were racing in the rain try to drift (handbrake turn) and he thought the smoke from his exhaust would make up for the tyres burning and he span into a ditch....
lol
but i could be wrong :)
