Wombats - 1, GTP - 0
At 615am crossing the Victorian border into the CAN River, it happened.
Blind corner, doing 100kph.
1 adult wombat versus a GTP with fibreglass front end.
It could never end in happiness.
No posts on the side of the road were hurt during the writting of this story. My appologies to the ACT subbranch of the FPV-Tickford Club of NSW as I probably will not be able to make the next meeting.
The amazing part of this story.... While the cosmetic damage was huge, the structural damage is zero. I did not even do a wheel alignment even though I hit a wombat with my left wheel at 100kph! What a car!!
I would like to add a comment about no wombats being injured in this story, unfortunately, that would be a lie. We removed him from the road (so noone else would hit him) and I believe he was already dead as he was lying on the road already. Must have been a truck as there was no other car or car parts around at the time.
Car goes into AAMI tomorrow morning and I will post damage report when known.
Rest in piece.
