W Series drivers Agren and Visser transferred to hospital for checks after Spa qualifying crash

Two W Series drivers have been taken to hospital for further checks after a multiple car accident at Spa.

Friday’s qualifying session for the series, which is one of the support categories at the Belgian Grand Prix this weekend, was red-flagged early on after a six-car collision at Eau Rouge-Raidillon, which involved Fabienne Wohlwend, Ayla Agren, Abbie Eaton, Sarah Moore, Belen Garcia and Beitske Visser – whose car was left on its side in the middle of the track.

The session was immediately stopped as marshals and track officials, including the medical car, attended the scene.

In a statement after the crash, W Series said: “All drivers involved in the incident are undergoing medical assessment and two of the drivers – Ayla Agren and Beitske Visser – have been transferred to hospital for further checks.”

The statement added that more updates would follow once more information was available.

Once the drivers were being treated and the track cleared of debris and their cars, the session was restarted, with championship leader Jamie Chadwick taking pole position for Veloce Racing ahead of title rival Alice Powell, and Nerea Marti in third.
