During the take-off roll the left mainwheel struck a tyre which was being used as a strip marker. The tyre deflected into the tailplane, however the pilot did not feel the impact and discovered the damage at the conclusion of the flight. An inspection indicated that the tyre had been moved from its normal position prior to the impact, and was hidden from the pilot's view by the long grass on the strip.
