Car Flies Off Track In Macau GP Horror Crash But Driver Issues Encouraging Update

Car Flies Off Track In Macau GP Horror Crash But Driver Issues Encouraging Update
By Balls Team Updated

Van Amersfoort Racing’s Sophia Floersch has issued a statement on Twitter after footage emerged of a horror crash during the Formula Three Macau Grand Prix on Sunday.

The German teenager's vehicle left the track and collided with a nearby marshals area. She was, however, conscious when taken to hospital although she is reported to have suffered a broken spine in the collision.

The incident happened towards the end of a straight where speed tracking had her clocked at 276.2km/h. Five people were reported injured including another driver, two photographs and a marshal.

Ferrari junior driver Guan Yu Zhou explained to Australian outlet News.au how the incident unfolded.

First of all it was such a scary moment. Sophia was really close to Jehan, so when Jehan braked early she had no time to react. She hit Jehan’s right-rear, and that spun her around straight into Lisboa, and she flew into the other car.

I just hope she’s OK.
