Friends, Colleagues & Fans Rally To Help Fund Winslow’s Medical Expenses

After massive Yas Marina shunt

News from friends of James Winslow that an effort has begun to support James with medical expenses after his horrendous accident at Las Marina durning the Gulf 12 Hours last month.

His Graff Racing Ligier JS P3 lost all braking at 240 KPH, a rear brake line apparently failing, James explaining that this in turn saw the brake balance bar jam up and rob him of front braking too, he managed to scrub off some speed but still hit the tyre barrier at 160-180 kph, huge deceleration and a catalogue of injuries including:

Two fractured vertebrae
Broken sternum
Broken wrist
Internal bruising
Damaged spleen
Concussion
Post trauma vertigo

The current advice is that there is a bare minimum of 3 months recovery ahead for James and, unfortunately, he does not have insurance and has already incurred substantial medical expenses.

In addition, the injuries will prevent James from earning income to pay for his medical care, rehabilitation, and daily living expenses for quite some time.

A fundraising effort has begun and is gathering momentum and you can help by contributing here >> James Winslow Funding Page

Get well soon James, as the paddock at the Asian Le Mans Series at Buriram said just last week, the first race meeting their mate and colleague missed as a result of his shunt you can see their video ‘Get Well Soon’ card Here >>
