Richard Westbrook escaped injury following a massive accident Tuesday at Daytona International Speedway in TUDOR United SportsCar Championship testing.
The Englishman’s No. 90 Spirit of Daytona Corvette DP suffered an unidentified failure while braking into the high-speed Turn 1 section on the 3.56-mile oval/road course, sending the car airborne and into a series of rolls, according to multiple eyewitness.
Westbrook was treated and released from the infield medical center but could not be reached for comment.
The car sustained considerable damage to all four corners, which has resulted in the Troy Flis-led squad packing after completing just a few hours of testing with its newly upgraded DP.
