Here is an official statement from SRO after the overnight accident at the Total 24 Hours of Spa Blancpain race. The accident triggered a two hour red flag stoppage as the drivers were assessed, treated, extricated and sent to hospital.
At around 03.00 CEST during the Total 24 Hours of Spa, an accident occurred involving the #31 Team Parker Racing Bentley of Andy Meyrick (Pictured Above) and the #666 Attempto Racing Lamborghini driven by Jurgen Krebs.
The race was neutralised and both drivers were successfully extracted from their cars. They were taken to the circuit medical centre, then transferred to hospital.
Both drivers suffered fractures and, due to the high-speed nature of the accident, are currently being kept under observation in intensive care. However, neither has suffered life-threatening injuries.
SRO Motorsports Group would like to thank the circuit medical staff and track marshals for their assistance, while also wishing both drivers a full and speedy recovery.
