The pilot reported that he was attempting a practice glide approach onto a farm strip when during the final approach, he carried out a 360 degree turn to lose height. As a result of the turn the aircraft ended up low on the approach and although the pilot applied power to correct the glide path the aircraft touched down on a gravel road 115 metres short of the strip. The aircraft bounced, touched down in the rough alongside the road, collided with trees and came to a stop with a collapsed nosewheel.
