That is Good News to see that She is going to make it without any Paralysis!

And the Most Amazing Thing about this Crash is that so few People were Hurt unlike the 1955 Grand LeMans Crash.

I have not been able to see a Video on how her Car got Airborne but it may be similar to Grand LeMans as she may have clipped a Car in front of her and Bounced off of it going Airborne.

 

3X3

Where do you get the “grand” from?

Prix, probably.

Interesting that the inquiry into the crash revealed many reservations before and after the race that the track itself hadn't been modernised for these machines of increasing speed. It was 30 years old at the time of the disaster.

Was/is  the Le Mans 24 Hours race a Grand Prix ?

That’d be a ballistic missile Stu - once it’s airborne there’s no guiding it.

The Le Mans 24 hours has never been termed a Grand Prix.  The circuit was used to host the French GP in 1921 but that was an entirely different event.

the first grand prix that france ever held was at le mans

And was therefore the first Grand Prix ever. According to Wiki, it started and finished in Le Mans but was a 60-ish mile circuit through a series of villages. Amazing.
