Horrific Intersport crash at Sebring  UPDATE #2 Intersport Racing’s Jon Field was released from a Sebring, Fla., hospital Monday night, hours after a horrific crash during testing for this weekend’s opening round of the 2010 American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patr¢n.

Field, testing for the 58th Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring presented by Fresh from Florida, was taken to Highlands Regional Medical Center following an accident in which his AER-powered Lola B06/10 LMP1 race car got airborne and flipped several times between Turns 9 and 10 of the 3.7-mile, 17-turn Sebring International Raceway circuit.

The car eventually came to a stop upright on its wheels. After being taken to the track's medical center, he was transported to Highlands Regional for further observation.

Prior to the crash, the Intersport Lola-AER had posted the fastest time of the afternoon session.

03/15/10 Team manager Brian Alder reported late Monday that CT Scans of the head and neck were negative.

Reports from IMSA indicated that high winds, at times over 30mph, likely played a major factor in the incident. While Jon initially told medical workers that the rear wing collapsed, the wing remained intact even after the catastrophic accident. A punctured tire has also not been ruled out as the cause.

It’s uncertain if the car will be repaired for the race, or whether the team’s spare chassis, currently at its Dublin, Ohio shop, will be used.
