53 year-old British racer Marcus Mahy is progressing after his vicious collision with fellow Ferrari driver Vadim Kogay during the 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps. He was taken to a local hospital via helicopter after being extracted from the car.

After being awoken from a medically-induced coma, he was responding well to various medical tests. It was reported that surgery would be needed on his neck, but other details were not divulged. The following statement from the SRO gives more positive news on his improving conditions.
