Racing Driver Sophia Flörsch Crashes At 200 Km /H:


The epidemic season of the fastest German female racing driver continues: Sophia Flörsch (20) also has no success in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The Munich rider ended in the evening of the first half of the race. Reason: rain showers and thus various accidents, caution phases and safety cars.

Specifically, a so-called “slow zone” was fatal for Flörsch, in which the cars under yellow have to drive more slowly. In eleventh place, she was torpedoed twice by competitors.

First, Franco Colapinto crashed into the rear of her in the G-Drive Aurus (Russinow / Colapinto / de Vries) at 200 km / h. Flörsch tore his hands off the steering wheel and crashed into the boundary.

But that's not all: When turning around, the German was hit by another car on the side: the end for her all-women car by Richard Mille and her teammates Tatiana Calderon and Beitske Visser.

“I couldn't do anything,” says Flörsch, explaining the crash. “It was a slow zone. The driver from behind has lost control (when braking into the slow zone; d. Ed.) And slipped into me. "

After the accident, she had to go to the medical centre for a check-up, but she immediately gave the all-clear via her social media channels.

Flörsch was disappointed, but at least unhurt: “I'm very sorry for the whole team. It is a shame and very frustrating that we are leaving so early and in this way. We were already in eleventh place. The top 10 or top 8 would have been possible. "
