According to the Auto Racing, a gust of wind pushed the P! racer sideways while approaching the Turn 10 section, sending in out of control into the air. The machine landed upside down and then rolled over once again.
According to witnesses, Field got out of the car and then collapsed. He was taken to the Highlands Regional Medical Center and was released later the same day. He will return to the track in April, too late for Field to continue his streak of 13 consecutive 12 Hours of Sebring starts.
In the end, Intersport announced the reason of the crash was a failure to the right-rear suspension.
"First and foremost, we are relieved that Jon was able to walk away from the wreck without injury," Intersport team manager Brian Alder told racer.com. "It is a tribute to IMSA safety regulations and the construction of the Lola to see our driver walk away from such a horrific crash."
"With Jon on the mend. We will channel our focus for the 12 Hour to the team's LMPC car. We will also be busy with our IMSA Lites entries. We're very confident and enthusiastic about the team's competitiveness in those programs."
