Wydaeghe underwent collarbone surgery after Rally1 test crash

Martijn Wydaeghe shared via his social media his current health situation following by the massive accident he had during his test with the hybrid Hyundai i20N in Alsace.

Thierry Neuville and Martijn Wydaeghe tested for the first time the next season's Hyundai Rally1 car in Alsace last Saturday, but they had a huge crash during their test.

In fact the Belgian co-driver was aching in his shoulder after this crash and received the help of paramedics at the crash place and after that the crew was transferred to the hospital for further examination.

Moreover, the Hyundai Rally1 car that used in this test was heavily damaged in the chassis and the Korean team is trying to repair it as it had only one chassis ready for the tests.


Finally, Wydaeghe believes that he will be ready for next season's Rallye Monte Carlo and he underwent a successful collarbone surgery after France test.

"Hello everyone! Just wanted to give you some news!", Wydaeghe posted on his social media.

"I had a little surgery on my collarbone and I’m back home. 

"All good and don’t worry I will have fully recovered in four weeks.

"Thanks you for all your kind messages of support and see you in Monte Carlo".
