Crash puts Meyer on hold

by Henk de Winter |

Super1600 front runner Clemens Meyer hopes to be back in action for the final round of the European Rallycross Championship at Buxtehude, the German targeting his home event for a return after a big crash in the B final of last weekend’s Belgian event left his Skoda Fabia badly damaged.

Meyer went off the track together with Ulrik Linnemann in the first corner, the German driver careering across the sand trap and making heavy contact with the guardrail. The race stopped to allow marshals to attend Meyer who briefly lost consciousness. removed from his car by the event’s medical team, Meyer was taken to hospital for precautionary checks.

His Fabia suffered too much damage to be returned to action this weekend. Meyer started his short season of ERC events in Norway, but had hoped to compete in al remaining events. The crash will now almost certainly rule him out of making it to Finland in September. Meyer has a great track record on the Estering, his home track, where he won the Super1600 A final in 2010.
