Smits plots return
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.”
