Narrative:
Whilst transiting the lane of entry outbound to Cessnock the pilot reported that the engine started to vibrate. The aircraft was turned onto a reciprocal heading to return to Hoxton Park but the engine began to run roughly. The use of carburettor heat had no effect, and engine RPM began to decrease. The pilot elected to carry out a forced landing on a racecourse, but during the landing roll the aircraft collided with a barrier fence.
