Suzuka -- A serious accident took place during the second Ferrari Challenge race, on the programme at the Ferrari Racing Days at Suzuka today. For reasons yet to be established, Shigeru Terajima's car crashed into the safety barriers. The driver was immediately taken to the hospital in a town nearby Suzuka, where he is currently in a serious condition. Also hurt in the accident was a Suzuka circuit volunteer, who is in the same hospital, although in a less serious condition than the driver.
