The pilot was landing uphill on a private airstrip with a slight tailwind. Threshold airspeed was slightly fast and the aircraft touched down long. During the landing roll, the pilot realised that he had insufficient braking distance to prevent the aircraft from colliding with a fence at the end of the strip. He applied power in an attempt to go around, but the aircraft did not have sufficient speed to become airborne before the fence. He then closed the throttle and allowed the aircraft to pass through the fence.
