The pilot had been conducting a series of circuits with touch and go landings. Shortly after take-off for another circuit, the engine lost power. The pilot pumped the throttle and the engine responded briefly, but then failed again. The pilot was committed to a forced landing in an unsuitable area. The touchdown was heavy, the nosegear was dislodged, and the aircraft overturned. The reason for the loss of engine power was not established.
