Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Lead­ing World En­durance Cham­pi­onship driv­ers An­thony David­son and Benoit Tre­luyer were forced to miss the Mex­ico round through in­jury.

Toy­ota racer David­son bruised his ribs in a test­ing ac­ci­dent at Magny-cours in Au­gust but had been ex­pected to race in Mex­ico.

How­ever he with­drew af­ter feel­ing dis­com­fort in test­ing on Thurs­day.

“It is dis­ap­point­ing to come all the way here and then not be able to race but it’s the right de­ci­sion,” said David­son.

“I wasn’t com­fort­able in the car this morn­ing and there is no point to take any risks, es­pe­cially with Austin com­ing up [on Septem­ber 17].”

Mean­while, Tre­luyer drove the #7 Audi in free prac­tice but wasn’t con­fi­dent with tak­ing part in the race as he re­cov­ers from sus­tain­ing a cracked ver­te­bra in a train­ing ac­ci­dent in July.

Both en­tries were there­fore driven by just two driv­ers.
