At 1450 hours (Central European Time) this afternoon Tracy Krohn, at the wheel of the #83 Krohn green Risi Competizione Ferrari 430 GT, left the track after exiting the final Porsche curve. A wheel on the grass caused the car to become de-stabilised and the rear of the Ferrari made heavy contact with the barriers before coming to a final halt on the track just level with pit entry.

The Texan driver was taken to the medical centre for checks and later to the local Le Mans hospital for a precautionary scan but was talking and alert throughout, and after, the incident. The extent of the damage to the car means that it will take no further part in today’s test session for the 24 Hours of Le Mans on June 14/15.
