Scary crash at Daytona (updated)
Memo Gidley, likely blinded by the setting sun at the infield kink hits the slowed Risi Competizione Ferrari driven by Matteo Maluccelli.
We hope for the best for both drivers.
At 8:43am this morning, IMSA issued the following update on the conditions of Memo Gidley and Matteo Malucelli following their horrific incident at Daytona yesterday:
"Memo Gidley, driver of the No. 99 GAINSCO / Bob Stallings Racing Corvette DP, underwent surgical procedures on both his left arm and left leg at Halifax Health in Daytona Beach, Florida. Gidley also has an unstable fracture in his back which will require additional surgery before he can be released from the hospital. He continues to be evaluated.
Matteo Malucelli, driver of the No. 62 Risi Competizione Ferrari 458 Italia, remained at Halifax Health overnight for further evaluation. He continues to rest comfortably. An update on his condition will be provided later today."
