- Six cars involved in horrific crash in W Series qualifying in Belgium
- Two cars were launched into the air after the crash near the Eau Rogue bend
- Beitske Visser and Ayla Agren were taken to hospital after the incident
- Both were subsequently fired and all drivers escaped without injury
Six drivers were involved in a horrific crash in W Series qualifying for the Belgian Grand Prix, but all remarkably managed to escape without injury.
The crash occurred just before the infamous Eau Rouge corner, as cars climbed the hill through the middle right-handed section of the dodges.
Sarah Moore lost the back of her car and spun into the tire wall before Abbie Eaton followed. Ayla Agren and Beitske Visser were next to crash, with the contact of Visser’s car launching Eaten into the air.

Marta Garcia then collided with Visser and her car was also thrown into the air.
Fabienne Wohlwend was the last driver involved in the crash when she also hit Visser, whose car went up in the air for the second time.
Wohlwend’s vehicle turned upside down after hitting Visser.
Both Visser and Agren were taken to hospital, but they have now been discharged and the other four drivers also escaped unharmed.
Visser posted an update from the hospital on social media in which she thanked an ‘angel on her shoulder’ for protecting her.
“Thank you for your messages,” she wrote on Twitter.
“That was very scary, but I think I had an angel on my shoulder, I’m in a lot of pain but luckily I have no fractures.”
Wohlwend also tweeted: ‘It’s going well, thanks for all the messages – think of @AylaAgren & @beitskevisser’.

The crash in Belgium comes two years after Formula 2 driver Anthoine Hubert was killed in an accident in the last part of the Eau Rouge.
Earlier this year, Williams reserve driver Jack Aitken was injured in a corner crash during a 24-hour endurance race.
The Spa-Francorchamps circuit is one of the sport’s most demanding circuits, with both Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc crashing at different parts of the track during Formula 1 qualifying.
