We've just received word that racer and Road & Track contributor Paul Frère has been seriously injured in an accident near the Nürburgring. As reported by La Derniere Heure, the 89-year-old Frère was apparently involved in a heavy collision while driving a Honda Civic R. He is in a Frankfurt hospital with seven broken ribs, a shattered pelvis and two punctured lungs. The prognosis appears good, however. It is expected he will return to his home in France in October.
