The pilot reported that soon after takeoff at a height of 150 to 200ft the engine spluttered and then stopped. The aircraft was landed on the remaining runway. The left main landing gear was torn off and the right wing was damaged during the landing. The cause of the engine stoppage was apparently caused by fuel flow interruption, however extensive post flight examination could find no fault with the engine or fuel system.
