Legge sustains fractures in high-speed Paul Ricard crash

Former Champ Car racer Katherine Legge has suffered a broken lower left leg and right wrist in a high-speed accident during Paul Ricard's European Le Mans Series test.

The 40-year-old Briton crashed at the exit of the fast Signes right-hander at the end of the Mistral Straight on Wednesday morning aboard the Richard Mille Racing Oreca-Gibson 07 LMP2 car she is sharing with Alfa Romeo Formula 1 test driver Tatiana Calderon.

The session was immediately red-flagged to allow for Legge's extraction from the car, which is run by the French Signatech squad.

She was taken to the circuit medical centre for assessment of her injuries and was diagnosed with a broken lower left leg and right wrist. She was subsequently transferred by helicopter to Sainte Anne hospital in nearby Toulon.

A statement from the ELMS stressed that Legge was conscious throughout her removal from the car and that her injuries are not life-threatening.

Legge, Calderon and Formula 3 racer Sophia Floersch are contesting the ELMS and the Le Mans 24 Hours in September aboard the Richard Mille entry, which is backed by the FIA's Women in Motorsport initiative.

Floersch is missing this weekend's round at Ricard to race in the FIA F3 Championship on the F1 undercard at the Hungaroring this weekend.
