How to repair carbon fiber wing?

I landed a Renegade on hard ground - the nose cone was driven into the carbon-fiber wing and made two slits on either side of the wing mount point. A 1/8" nylon screw holds the wing to the fuse.

Because this is a high-stress area, I figure it should have something stonger than fiberglass.

What is the best way to repair this? Carbon, Kevlar, Fiberglass cloth or some combination? What is the procedure?

Not sure what the damage to your wing is. This link covers construction tips for repairing wings and fuselages.

Good Luck
