P & M Aviation QuikR, G-CFOO
The aircraft drifted to the left during the takeoff roll, but not sufficiently to cause the pilot concern. He continued with the takeoff initially, but the aircraft failed to attain flying speed. On realising that the aircraft could not become airborne, he braked heavily, but was unable to prevent the aircraft from colliding with a hedge to the left of the runway. The passenger suffered a broken foot, but the pilot was uninjured.
