A Guernsey racing driver is in hospital after a "major accident" at a race in Belgium on Saturday.
Marcus Mahy, 53, was taking part in the Spa 24-hour race when his Kessel Ferrari 458 Italia collided with a similar model from the Rinaldi team.
The race was then stopped so the air ambulance could transport him to the CHU hospital in Liege.
The Kessel driver was about a third of the way into the endurance race when he crashed.
He was woken from a medically induced coma on Sunday. He is thought to be in a stable condition and will undergo surgery on his shoulder soon.
Mr Mahy describes himself as a "gentleman driver" and has raced for a number of endurance teams.
