W Series organisers have provided a positive update on the six drivers involved in a major crash during qualifying at Spa-Francorchamps.

Ayla Agren and Beitske Visser were hospitalised after the incident, with Agren being discharged earlier today. Sarah Moore, Abbie Eaton, Fabienne Wohlwend and Belen Garcia were also involved in the incident at Raidillon, but managed to walk away.

W Series said in a statement: "Ayla Agren has been discharged from hospital. Beitske Visser is still in hospital – a CT scan has revealed no injuries. She is still awaiting the results of a leg X-ray but is in good spirits and discussing the accident."

The six drivers slid off the track in quick succession as they climbed up the hill at Eau Rouge in damp conditions. The cars piled up on each other in a scary-looking and severe crash, with one car landing upside down.

"Today's qualifying was an eventful session to say the least," said W Series Racing Director Dave Ryan. "Spa is always quite eventful and today certainly proved to be for us.

"It was very unfortunate to have the accident at the beginning of the session, but thankfully it seems that everyone is okay.

"The cars have stood up unbelievably well to what looks like a massive crash, which is good to see too."
