macnish, but luckely he survived.
The first hour of today's Le Mans 24 Hour race was marred by a huge
accident for Audi's Scottish driver Allan McNish.
McNish had enjoyed a superb start from fifth on the grid to be running
second shortly before the hour mark when he clipped the number 58 GTE Pro
Ferrari of Anthony Beltoise while attempting to lap the back marker as the
cars headed down towards the Esses, crashing violently into the barriers.
The Audi R18 suffered a high impact and slewed over the Armco railing
throwing debris over trackside marshals and photographers.
McNish was extracted safely from his stricken car but there was no
immediate word on whether any spectators had been hurt.
The accident forced the safety car onto the track and left last year's
winner Timo Bernhard up front in the lead Audi ahead of its remaining
sister car and the three Peugeots.
A horrible crash for Allan McNish in the opening hour of the 2011 Le Mans
24 Hours, he tried to pass one of the slower cars, made contact and went
hard into the barriers. Luckily he and everyone behind that barrier escaped
LE MANS, France (Reuters) - Former winner Allan McNish escaped serious
injury after crashing his Audi shortly after the start of the Le Mans 24
Hours sportscar race on Saturday.
The official race website (http://www.lemans.org) said the Scot, who
stepped out of the wreckage unaided, was unhurt but taken to the circuit
medical centre for precautionary checks.
The safety car was deployed after the accident involving the number three
Audi R18 and the Ferrari 458 driven by Anthony Beltoise, with German Timo
Bernhard leading the race in the number one Audi.
The number two Audi driven by Frenchman Benoit Treluyer was in second
McNish had been challenging Bernhard, overtaking his team mate after the
Dunlop Bridge but then clipping the slower Ferrari.
The Audi, which McNish was sharing with Denmark's Tom Kristensen and
Italian Rinaldo Capello, was launched sideways into the gravel trap and
nearly cleared the barriers with bodywork flying.
The Ferrari was largely undamaged and continued.
"The Ferrari closed the door, Allan had no chance whatsoever. He went off
very quickly, but luckily managed to get out of the car unharmed," said
Audi motorsport head Wolfgang Ullrich.
"To see that the cars are so strong is good, but that's not the way we like
to demonstrate it."
Audi, in a battle with French rivals Peugeot, have won six of the last
seven editions of the race and swept the front row in qualifying with
Treluyer on pole and the number one Audi alongside.
