Smits plots re­turn

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Michiel Smits, the Dutch driver in­jured dur­ing the Good­wood Mem­bers’ Meet­ing, says he will re­turn to the 2017 event in his re­built Lola T70 Spy­der.

The car plunged off the road at Wood­cote af­ter it was thought to have been hit by body­work from an­other car. Smits is now re­cov­er­ing at home from some sig­nif­i­cant back in­juries, but should be fully re­cov­ered in around three months.

“I am a happy per­son as it could have turned out much worse,” he said. “The car will be re­paired. I’m look­ing for­ward to next year’s Good­wood event.”
