Mt Philo Crash: "It Had To Happen Some Time."

First big hillclimb crash for my friend Jamie Melhuish who had earlier this year conquered Pikes Peak (here are Part I and Part II of that fantastic run).

The crash happened at the 2012 Mt Philo hill climb. Luckily, Jamie was not injured and front end damage is mostly limited to sheet metal and the control arm, wheel and tire. Vital components like engine, radiator, strut, brakes all seem OK. Looking at the video, it is terrifying to think that car might have rolled down that steep hill Pikes Peak style...

Jamie is keeping his wits about the crash: "It Had To Happen Some Time... Another winter project!"

That's the spirit, Jamie!
