Andy Priaulx could miss the Rolex 24 at Daytona after crashing heavily during practice on Friday.
The DTM driver was due to make his Daytona debut this weekend the Turner Motorsport, driving one of the team's two BMW M3s in the GT class. The car had qualified 18th in the category on Thursday. But a heavy accident during practice at Turn 4, which Priaulx said was caused by a braking problem, forced his No. 93 car to be withdrawn due to the amount of damage caused.
Three-time World Touring Car champion Priaulx was taken to the medical center for examination, but was later released without injury.
There remains the possibility that Priaulx may still race, despite his car being withdrawn. The team posted on Twitter that the 39-year-old Briton and his co-drivers Maxime Martin, Gunter Schaldach and Michael Marsal could all feature in the sister M3, set to be raced by Bill Auberlen, Paul Dalla Lana, Billy Johnson and Boris Said, instead.
