During pre-race testing at Le Mans’ Circuit de Sarthe today, young Frenchman Guillaume Moreau survived a very serious accident with the OAK Racing entered Pescarolo Judd LMP1 at Virage du Karting towards the end of the lap.
The driver suffered a serious but partial injury to his spinal cord’s twelfth vertebra. Guillaume has since undergone an emergency operation performed by Professor Olivier Lucas at the University Hospital of Angers’ Neurosurgery Department. It was crucial to quickly reduce pressure around the spinal cord following the fracture.
Although the operation went well, it will be several months before his level of recovery can be fully assessed.
What cause d the accident remains unclear at the moment.
We would like to wish Guillaume and his family all the power and strength in the world to overcome this difficult as well as hoping for his complete recovery.
