Katherine Legge has sustained multiple fractures following a heavy accident in the European Le Mans Series pre-season test at Paul Ricard on Wednesday.
Legge’s No. 50 Richard Mille Racing Oreca 07 Gibson left the track at the high-speed Signes right-hander and impacted the guardrail, triggering a red flag to the session.
A statement from the ELMS confirmed that Legge was conscious after the impact and was taken to the circuit medical center before being flown by helicopter to a hospital in Toulon.
Legge suffered a broken bone in her lower left leg and also a broken right wrist.
The British driver had been sharing the Richard Mille Oreca with Tatiana Calderon and Sophia Floersch, who are her co-drivers for the 2020 ELMS season.
The championship’s statement added that further updates will be made when more information becomes available.
