Due to distractions the crew of G-EPTR did not lower the landing gear on the downwind leg or conduct the final checks on approach. As a result, the aircraft landed with the landing gear up causing damage to the propeller, aircraft and engine, although there were no injuries to either occupant. Neither pilot heard or saw the gear warnings, and the automatic extension system fitted to the aircraft had been disabled by the selector being in override, as was customary on the aircraft.
