Narrative:
The pilot entered the aircraft with the intention of taxiing the aircraft back to the club hangar. The pilot completed the usual checks before starting, however when the aircraft started it instantly surged forward. The pilot was not able to stop the aircraft by using the brakes then closing the throttle and turning off the master switch. As there were people nearby, the pilot quickly applied a large amount of left rudder, resulting in the aircraft impacting a nearby hangar.
