Floersch conscious but hospitalized after Macau shunt
Macau Grand Prix organisers have confirmed that Sophia Floersch is conscious and has been transferred to hospital following a terrifying accident that stopped the race.
The German was launched into the air and over the crash barriers after striking the TOM’S car of Sho Tsuboi at Lisboa Bend, having lost her wheels in a crash further up the long straight before the tight right hander.
Floersch’s car went through debris fencing and struck a photographer’s bunker before landing back on its wheels.
A statement from the organisers said that both Floersch and Tsuboi were concious and had been taken to hospital.
Three further individuals, two photographers and one marshal, were also involved in the accident, with them also being transferred to hospital.
The race was restarted following a delay of more than one hour to attend to the individuals involved in the accident as well as repair the fencing.
