'I had an angel on my shoulder' - W Series drivers unhurt in horror Spa crash

Agren and Visser were hospitalised after being involved in a pile-up at Eau Rouge in qualifying for the W Series round at Spa on Saturday afternoon.

The scary accident happened as rain began to fall, with several drivers losing the rear of their cars and ending up in the barriers at the top of the hill, before being fired into the path of oncoming rivals.

Sarah Moore, Abbie Eaton, Belen Garcia and Fabienne Wohlwend were all involved along with Agren and Visser, who ended up taking three massive hits and being launched into a terrifying airborne roll.

All of the drivers were sent for an initial assessment at the circuit medical centre, with Agren and Visser transferred to a nearby hospital for further checks.

Agren was released from hospital first, while W Series confirmed on Saturday morning that Visser had also been discharged after a leg X-ray and CT scan revealed she had suffered no injuries.

The crash highlighted further safety concerns over the Eau Rouge-Raidillon section of the Spa track following a number of serious incidents in recent years.

Williams Formula 1 reserve Jack Aitken was left with a broken collarbone and a fractured vertebra following a multi-car shunt in the 24 Hours of Spa.

Two years ago, Anthoine Hubert was killed after being T-boned by Juan Manuel Correa at the top of Raidillon during a Formula 2 race.
