Nigel Mansell's crash that put his Beechdean Ginetta out of the Le Mans 24 Hours has been put down to a slow puncture.
The 1992 Formula 1 World Champion was just four laps into the raced when his car pitched sideways into the wall between Mulsanne Corner and Indianapolis. The accident caused a half-hour safety car period while Mansell was extricated from the car and taken to the circuit's medical facility. He suffered a concussion in the crash but was released from the medical center and has returned home.
Beechdean team principal Andrew Howard said: "We are very relieved to report that though Nigel is very sore, he is OK. The data from the car has shown that the cause was a slow puncture to the left-rear tire."
