Anthony Davidson bruised but safe after big accident

Anthony Davidson, driving the Veloqx Prodrive Ferrari 550 Maranello no.80, suffered a big accident at 0420hrs at the Mulsanne corner, some ten minutes after taking the wheel from Darren Turner. The Briton, 24, was able to extract himself from the car and, once the incident marshals arrived to tend to him, was taken to the official medical centre where he was given a full examination by the circuit's doctors.

He is shocked and bruised and has suffered a bang to the head but is conscious and talkative. He is being taken to Le Mans' central hospital for a brain scan - a routine procedure where head injuries are involved.

The cause of the accident is not yet known and is currently being investigated by the team's engineers. Further information will be released as soon as it is known. The car, which was holding second place in the GTS category, will take no further part in the race and has been officially retired.

Car 88 continues to lead GTS category

The sister car of Jamie Davies, Tomas Enge and Peter Kox continues to hold the lead in the GTS category, and has run smoothly through the night.
