The Beechdean Mansell Motorsport team has announced that it will return to competitive action in the Hungarian round of the Le Mans Series in August, following its Le Mans crash.
Nigel Mansell damaged the Ginetta Zytek GZ09S that he shared with his sons Leo and Greg in a high-speed crash in the early hours of the 24 Hours. The accident forced the team to miss the next race of the Le Mans Series in Portugal, but after assessing the damage, the squad has announced that it will be back in action for the Aug. 22 race at the Hungaroring.
"I would like to thank everyone who sent messages after the accident at Le Mans, and I can let everyone know I am on the mend," said Mansell. "The car was performing really well up to the end of the fourth lap, but then the tire deflated and pitched me into the barriers.
"It was a big accident on one of the fastest parts of the track, I sustained a concussion but I am OK. We are now looking forward to the next race in Hungary, where Leo and Greg will share the driving duties and I will return to the cockpit with my sons for the final race at Silverstone in front of the British fans."
