Narrative:The aircraft failed to gain sufficient airspeed during the takeoff roll, causing the pilot to abort the takeoff. The aircraft overran the runway and was substantially damaged. Contributory factors to the accident were the carburettor heat control inadvertently being left in the ON position, a hurried departure due to the late hour and the takeoff being performed towards a low sun, which presented a significant distraction.
