A serious accident involving four drivers took place on Saturday less than 30 minutes after the start of the 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps. Two of them were taken to hospital, but their vital prognosis is not believed to be in jeopardy. The 24 Hours of Spa, one of the most important GT races in the world, had started around 25 minutes ago and only nine laps had been completed on the Belgian circuit, when a spectacular accident took place at the top of the Raidillon on Saturday. It was Jack Aitken (Lamborghini) who made a mistake by hitting the tires on his left before being sent back to the track and being hit by Franck Perera (Lamborghini) and Davide Rigon (Ferrari), Kevin Estre ( Porsche) fitting him in the 488 of the Italian.

While the race was neutralized by a Full Course Yellow before the safety car came out to regroup all the competitors before the restart, the four drivers left for the medical center. Estre and Perera were quickly released after exams, Aitken and Rigon were taken to hospital but according to the organizer their lives are not in danger. The test resumed after about an hour of interruption.
