The Peugeot 908 that was damaged during Friday practice for the Spa 1000km is repairable and will run again this weekend, according to the team.
Despite appearing to be extensively damaged in the shunt, Peugeot insists that the car that was being driven by Pedro Lamy at the time of his collision with Mike Newton's RML HPD, will be repaired in time to take part in Saturday's practice session.
"The engine, chassis and all the important bits are fine," said a team spokesperson. "The mechanics will have to work late tonight, but it will be finished."
The contact was made between the left front of Newton's car and the right rear of Lamy's as the Portuguese driver passed the Briton heading into the Fangnes chicane, sending both into the wall. Lamy, who shares his car with Simon Pagenaud and Sebastien Bourdais, was unhurt in the incident while Newton was checked over in the medical center at the circuit before being transferred to a hospital in Verviers as a precautionary measure.
