Enge hurt in St Pete

Former F1 driver Tomas Enge had a big accident during Saturday evening's American Le Mans Series race on the streets of St Petersburg, in Florida. Enge was driving a Petersen Motorsports/White Lightning Ferrari 430 GT and leading his class when he went off at Turn Four. The car hit the wall on the driver's side and there was then a small fire but this was quickly extinguished and Enge was extracted from the car through the passenger side of the car. He did not suffer any burns but the team said later that he had had "serious trama" although he was awake and alert during the rescue process. He was taken to the Bayfront Medical Centre and was undergoing tests in the course of the hours that followed. He is listed as being in a stable condition.
