Ford to Confirm Bourdais Sub for 24H Le Mans “In the Days Ahead”
By John Dagys


Ford Performance Global Director Dave Pericak says they will determine their revised lineup for next month’s 24 Hours of Le Mans “in the days ahead” following Sebastien Bourdais’ serious accident at Indianapolis, which has ruled out the Frenchman for the race and likely the remainder of the season.

Bourdais sustained multiple fractures to his pelvis and a fracture to his right hip following a heavy impact with the SAFER Barrier in qualifying for the Indianapolis 500, and has already undergone surgery Saturday night.

While the 38-year-old open-wheel and sports car ace is expected to make a full recovery, Bourdais will not be able to defend his GTE-Pro class win in this year’s race.

“Sebastien has been such an important part of our Ford GT program, helping us win at both Le Mans and Daytona,” Pericak said.
