The incident happened at Spa’s notorious Eau Rouge corner, one of the most challenging in motorsport.

It comes just two years after promising F2 driver Anthoine Hubert was killed at the exit of Eau Rouge.

The drama unfolded when British driver Sarah Moore, 27, lost control at the corner and span into the tyre wall.

Fellow Brit Abbie Eaton, 29, was just behind Moore and also went off the track and into the tyres, deflecting into her compatriot.

Dutch star Visser, 26, Norwegian-Spanish ace Agren, 28, and Spaniard Marta Garcia, 21, went crashing into the British pair.

Visser’s car was sent flying up in the air before a sixth driver – not caught on camera – hit Visser and ended up upside down.

That was Fabienne Wohlwend, the 23-year-old from Liechtenstein, who recieved medical attention along with Moore, Eaton and Garcia.

Agren and Visser were hospitalised but both drivers have since confirmed they’ve not suffered any broken bones.

Visser tweeted: “Thank you all for your messages.

“That was a very scary one but I think I had an angel on my shoulder, I’m very sore but luckily I have no fracture.”

And Agren posted on Instagram: “Thank you everyone for your support and messages.

“I am all ok, bruised and sore but no broken bones… Today is a new day and I am looking forward to getting back behind the wheel soon.”

The W-Series is an all-female racing competition that began in 2019, with last year’s championship not held due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
