OAK Racing have released an update on the condition of their driver Guillaume Moreau who suffered injury after a heavy impact at the exit of the “Karting Track” corner towards the end of the morning session of the Le Mans 24 Hours Test Day.

The team have told press that he has suffered a serious but partial injury to his spinal cord's twelfth vertebra and has since undergone an emergency operation performed by Professor Olivier Lucas at the University Hospital of Angers' Neurosurgery Department.

The operation was performed to quickly reduce pressure around the spinal cord following the fracture. Although the operation went well, it will be several months before his level of recovery can be fully assessed.
