Tveter hopeful of returning to action at Spa


American racer Ryan Tveter is hopeful to be cleared to race in the next FIA European Formula 3 Championship event at Spa-Francorchamps after being taken to hospital following a crash during race three at Monza last weekend.

The Jagonya Ayam with Carlin driver clashed with the Team West-Tec F3 machine of Fabian Schiller at the first corner of the final race of the weekend, getting airborne and landing heavily, before spinning several times and coming to a halt.

He was attended to at trackside, and was transferred to hospital for treatment on what was described by his manager Terry Collins as an ‘orthopedic’ injury, though its not thought to be serious.

“The doctors and care at San Gerardo in Monza were great, but with the Italians being on holiday until Wednesday, they were working with a reduced staff and services, so Ryan was transferred to Switzerland, where he lives, on Monday,” said Collins.

“The injury is orthopedic in nature, and hopefully ultimately minor. Ryan is in good spirits, and he’s already looking forward to getting back behind the wheel as soon as possible.”
