Liz Halliday in cross country accident

As well as he credits in motor racing, Halliday is a world-class eventer and was competing in East Sussex when she fell from her horse and broke her collarbone, prompting an emergency operation.

It means Halliday will be unable to take part in the next LMS event with Noel Del Bello Racing at Spa-Francorchamps, although the spaced out calendar is likely to see her back in the cockpit for the next round at Silverstone in September.

“The first event of the day was cross country and I didn't go much further! It all happened at the first water jump on the course which was an up-right fence in the middle of the water. Admittedly this sort of fence in water has never been the best for Fox, but I felt that I gave him the correct pace and approach for the fence. As he took off he caught his left leg badly on the jump, throwing him off balance and pitching him on to his front end on landing. I tried to hang on but ended up falling off the left side.
