Sorry to hear about the breakage. Did the pulley clutch just shear off? Fingers crossed that the engine is fine.

Nice to see that even though your tow vehicle is a Toyota (?) it's set up for Ford-ing. ;)
Yea the tow vehicle is set-up for lots of different things and does it well.
Yea fingers crossed the engine is fine as it only has 2000 miles on it since it has been replaced under warranty, after oil cooler failed on me at the last track day prior to covid.

So this is the session that the A/C compressor goes and tensioner pulley goes causing to engine overheat in seconds. All happens so quickly towards the end of the video as i was coming onto the main straight.
It was all new to me, New Nankang Ar1 tyres, New Gloc R16 and R12 pads with 2 piece rotors, New camber settings front and rear and also new track that i never been to, so not too bad times for now ;) :D , considering the V8 Supercars do it in 1.09.65

Fingers crossed your engine is ok!
well I went and bought SnapOn SVTS272A cooling system tester and used the correct adapter (red) that it came with to pressure test the system. I left it sitting overnight at 21Psi and have no coolant or pressure loss which is a good start.
I'll have to do the combustion leak test and see if that turns out OK.SVTS272A.jpg
