Some time Ferrari test driver Marc Gene survived with light injuries after a huge crash during testing on Sunday for the forthcoming 24 hours of Le Mans event.

The 34-year-old Spaniard, whose teammate for the famous race is 1997 world champion Jacques Villeneuve, lost control of the Peugeot sports car, which flipped before striking a barrier backwards.

The car is a write-off, and Gene was treated at the scene and at the circuit's medical centre before he was transferred to a local hospital for a night of observation and tests.

He suffered a fractured toe and a bruised elbow, confirmed reports said, and Gene should be fit to race later in June.
