Just heard from Roger. He has updated his website with details of the
accident and damage caused to the car. You can read about it at
This car is self funded - no sponsers and hence relies on donations and
sales of merchandise to keep it on the track. Details of how you can help

Doug Foley Top Fuel Crash 2006
Foley's car went into a wheelstand, then lost traction when he pedaled it
and the front came down. The car then turned sideways, crossing the
centerline at the 330-foot marker. He managed to get the car pointed down
the track, but the rear slammed into the left wall hard, breaking the
chassis just ahead of the driver's foot box. Both pieces slid back across
the track together and there was a big fireball when the fuel tank hit the
wall. The nose of the car came to rest on the centerline, near the finish
line, while the heavier engine and driver capsule slid along the wall,
coming to a stop about 300 feet past the finish line.
Santa Pod Festival of Power 2013 - Kevin Slyfield incident
Firstly, and most importantly, the driver was OK and walked from the car!
He made a wobbly start and unfortunately it got worse, luckily just the car
was hurt. The conditions were pretty terrible with intermittent snow
showers and very low temperatures.
