During this weekend's Indy 500, held in the United States, Mike Conway had a serious accident. The young Briton was catapulted against the wall and after that he was dragged for metres as the car got back to the circuit. As by wonder, Conway only has a minor injury on his leg.
Conway was transported to Methodist Hospital for X-rays, while Hunter-Reay and Ana Beatriz (also incidentally involved) were checked and released from the infield care center. Hunter-Reay will, however, have surgery June 1 on his left thumb, which he injured in a pit lane incident.
Meanwhile Dario Franchitti handed Target Chip Ganassi its fourth Indy 500 victory in a dominating performance under a searing sun and worldwide spotlight – 45 years after his hero, Jim Clark, won at Indy.
