This is a bit sad, but at least it's back and can be repaired.
I have finally had a chance to go over some of the car and it does not look good.
It was run and it is covered in mud and gravel .
The half shafts are bent and broken and the cars rims are bent on the right hand side rear where it has hit something.
The front RH side is sitting up 15 mm and the chassis may be bent and the alloy under tray is bent.
The wheels are pointing the wrong way, bent front end.
The rack looks bent but will have to have it looked at.
The bodywork will have to be repaired and fully repainted.
A new rear wing will be required as the old one is bent in the centre.
Gearbox and clutch will have to be inspected and tested as will all of the uprights and arms.
A new radiator and duct will have to be made.
The engine looks like it was cooked and it has no water in it.
A lot of small parts have been removed and it looks like they were going to paint it.
So basically a full rebuild from the ground up.
I would very much appreciate it if you could pass on my heartfelt thanks for all the help, support, positive comments and thoughts it was a great help knowing that I was not alone throughout this ordeal.
It goes to show us how close the different motor racing groups actually are.
Interesting to speculate what type of individuals stole it, pure joy riders?
