British racecar driver Anthony Davidson went airborne at the 24 Hours of Le Mans when his Toyota collided with a Ferrari.
It happened in the fifth hour of the race near Le Mans, France.
Fifty-six-year-old Italian driver Piergiuseppe Perazzini’s Ferrari F458 clipped Davidson’s Toyota TS030 Hybrid.
Davidson’s car left the track and turned on its side before smashing into a safety barrier. The Ferrari also ended upside down.
Davidson went to the hospital.
“Anthony is in the medical centre and the good news is that he is walking and talking and seems okay,” said Toyota team’s director of business operations Rob Leupen. ”We don’t want to comment about the circumstances of the accident at the moment. We’re just happy that Anthony is okay.”
The 24 Hours of Le Mans is the world’s oldest sports car endurance race. It’s been held every year since 1923.
Three drivers race each car during the 24-hour race. The drivers switch every two hours.
