Narrative:
The pilot had completed his dual conversion training on the aircraft type and was authorised to make a solo flight. He successfully completed one solo circuit with a landing into the west, as planned, on to a grass flight strip on the southern side of the runway. When the aircraft had decelerated to about 10 knots, the pilot decided to immediately take off again. He applied power, but after travelling about 250 to 300 feet on a takeoff path, which undetected by the pilot, was diverging to the left from the heading of the strip, the aircraft struck a gable strip marker and then overturned.
