The qualification for the W series run in support of the Belgian Grand Prix was marred by a collision with six cars in Eau Rouge-Raidillon, at Fabienne Wohlwend, Ayla Agren, Abbie Eaton, Sarah Moore, Belen Garcia and Beitske Visser were involved. Each car slid off the track as it began to rain and in the path of subsequent cars, hitting Visser’s car hard enough to rip off the gearbox and rear end, turning her car over, which landed on the center’s side Route.
“All drivers involved in the incident will be medically examined and two of the drivers – Ayla Agren and Beitske Visser – were taken to the hospital for further examination,” said a statement from the all-female driver series. It was later announced that Agren had been released from the hospital while Visser was waiting for the results of a leg x-ray but was “in good spirits and discussing the accident.”
