Serious bummer about the accident... I swear, if I ever get hit by someone on their phone or texting, I'm gonna sue them for negligence on top of everything else. Don't drive drunk. Don't drive impaired. Don't drive on your damn phone or texting. Or please, just don't drive.

Sorry about the bad luck.

That's about the least sensible thing to do and leave the scene of an accident without OK from the police. But situational awareness would have helped to avoid your accident as well. If you see someone taling you, just ease off gas and pull over and let the person pass you. And if you miss a turn and stop enough that a person tailing you hits you when you brake, you were probably braking to hard as well. With them being on a cell phone is irrelevant at that point.

There's no reason to be "hauling ass" to check in. That kind of stuff gets rally events canceled when locals see the race cars driving fast on transits.

In my opinion, learn from the DNF. It could have been easily avoided by letting a tailgater pass. I've let plenty of aggressive locals pass me on a transit so I don't get in a scuffle with them.

here are a few short vids . The first one is on ss6 , the cars now running on 11.4 volts and having a hard time revving past 3/4 throttle. Second video is ss3 before the alt started crapping out . You can hear the difference in the way it revs!

Agree with Billy 110% on all points..

I've had to slow way down to turn off because of tailgaters..many of which are trying to get a better look at the car (foolishly).

In most areas leaving the scene of an accident is a crime in its self, you're lucky if you got away with that.

Yes. We lost 1:44 to it on stage two due to an a-arm working loose. Otherwise we would have taken the win. Oh well, that is rally. Congrats to Reilly.

The Cossie is one of Carl Merrill's old ones - in fact, the one that he was driving on the fateful day - maintained for a long time by Weejee Smith.

I love it of how something that (IMO) is really wicked cool, that being that an Escort Cosworth even finished an event, let alone WON it, and there is virtually no information anywhere about it, no pictures, no videos, etc.

Thanks, Pete. It was a good weekend, the roads were great this year and so was the weather.

The Cossie looked good all covered in dirt.

The way you described the situation can be taken very literal. Saying "sensible" followed by "leave the scene and haul ass to the first stage" doesn't seem like a figure of speech. If the chick lied to the cops, that means you weren't there. Which would go hand in hand with you fleeing the scene of an accident and "hauling ass" to the first stage.

So you can eat shit and have a great day as well.

Wow, I think we just read exactly what you wrote so maybe you should eat shit and while you're chewing think about reacting in a responsible manner and even better posting in a responsible and truthful manner.

When I first saw Gage pop up on SpecialStage and RallyAnarchy, I figured it was just a spalind account for when he was blocked for a week.

They have very similiar mannerisms/attitudes on the interwebs...

It's a discussion forum. You come here , don't follow the one single rule we have and start acting like a tough guy telling people to eat shit.

No no no..start over tough guy.
Go fill your name and your location in---REAL name real; location...

Then mellow the fuck out.People only know what you wrote. You wrote sloppily, and wrote somebody hit you but you left the scene and hauled ass...
And haulin ass EVERYWHERE means going fast, bookin--haulin ass...

Then YOU come out with Eat Shit for a couple of guys just slightly raisin one eyebrow, figuratively.

So tough guy, put your name up, READ the Hey Noob read this here first thing... and apologize.
