Doctors at the circuit have confirmed that Anthony is suffering from shock and back pain, however there are no signs of any injuries and he is walking and talking with no problems.


Not great but okay. He got out of the car, then gesticulated and lay back down - a common occurrence as adrenaline levels drop after a big hit and shock sets in.

Such a huge shame as they were on for the win and his career needs a boost. So angry at the backmarker. Unacceptable. :angryfire:

I make it a policy not to get too uptight about what commentators say. ;)

Back again after 6 hours sleep; coming up to 11am here so it must be approaching 3am in the race; about half race distance.

The Toyota/Ferrari incident was reminiscent of the Rockenfeller crash last year. The thing is the GT drivers in the briefing are told to maintain their line and allow the faster cars to make their own way past. The thing is there needs to be a measure of common sense in that and if you see a car diving for the inside, you have to make room for it. The other thing about that is you have to keep your eyes peeled. I call it a racing incident but in this day and age, I think they should think about having rear-facing cameras in the cars. :evil:

So before I left there was a Toyota in the lead and now, nothing. What happened? I also see that outside the top six, the leader board is populated by LMP2 cars. That tells me all the other LMP1 cars have had issues.

I suppose all will be revealed in the fullness of time.

Its approaching 5:30am in Le Mans and the sky is starting to get light. We're just about to end a safety car period.

Anthony Davidson is in hospital with cracked vertebrae following his accident in the Toyota yesterday. I still don't know what happened to the other Toyota.

The Krohn racing Ferrari is in the pit again for the second time in as many laps.

Audis 1, 2, 3 and 5.

Oh, the barbecued bacon and egg brunch was great, thanks.

Engine problems, it seems, is the reason for the retirement of the #7 Toyota which led the race for a short time.

The #51 AF Corse Ferrari leads GT Pro followed by the #97 Aston.

In LMP2, the #44 Starworks Honda leads in 7th place overall.

Twenty to seven in Le Mans and the #97 Aston, still 2nd in GT Pro, is in the wall at Indianapolis. They've pulled him out of the gravel and he's going again.

Nick Heidfeld is about to lose 4th place to the last of the Audis. Not much he can do about that. The #12 Rebellion Lola Toyota just doesn't have the pace. And the Audi goes through. The Eurosport commentators haven't seen it. The Audis now run 1,2,3 and 4. Unfortunately, since the demise of the factory Toyotas, there hasn't been much of a contest at the front.

Yeah, he'll be okay. Coupla cracked vertebrae. He'll be recovering for a few months. He's been tweeting apparently and he's quite positive apparently.

The #50 Labre Competition Corvette leads GT Am followed by the #67 IMSA Performance Matmut Porsche.

The #22 JRM Honda LMP1 car has passed the class-leading #44 Starworks Motorsport LMP2 Honda to take 7th place overall and making it LMP1 cars in positions 1 - 7.

There's a fight going on for the lead between the #2 Audi and the #1 Audi which is in hot persuit.

There's also a fight between the #26 Signatech Oreca Nissan and the #46 Thiriet Oreca Nissan for third place in LMP2.

Darren Turner in the #97 Aston has dropped to third in GT Pro behind the #59 Ferrari. The #51 AF Corse Ferrari of Fisichella, Buemi and Vilander still leads that class.

The #1 Audi in the hands of Fassler has just pitted confirming the lead Kristensen's lead in the #2 car. Number 2 is looking strong for a win for the second year in a row although the guys in this year's #2 were in last year's #1.
