Reynard Motorsport is committed to developing its 2KQ sportscar to resolve a small number of initial design and production issues, following a component failure at a Texas Speedway test yesterday in which George Robinson, driving Robinson Racing's 2KQ, suffered a track accident early in the session. Early reports suggest that a rear wing support failure caused partial collapse of the structure, leading to a dramatic 180 degree half-spin, with the car coming to a halt without hitting any barriers and remaining on the track. The driver was uninjured.

Mark Smithson, Sales and Marketing Director, Reynard Motorsport, explained, "We are obviously extremely concerned about this incident and are undertaking a thorough investigation into the causes. In the meantime, we are reviewing all aspects of the car - design, component manufacture, and of course, safety. We will take all necessary measures and actions to iron out any remaining issues."
