(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) – IndyCar driver Sebastien Bourdais has been cleared to resume driving by Dr Geoffrey Billows, IndyCar’s medical director, following his recovery from injuries sustained in a crash during Indianapolis 500 qualifications.
Billows said the 38 year-old Frenchman was evaluated by IndyCar orthopedic consultant Dr Kevin Scheid on Tuesday and was given clearance to fully return to racing activities.
Bourdais was involved in a frightening crash during a qualifying attempt on May 20. The crash left the four-time Indy car champion with fractures in his hip and pelvis. He returned to a car for a medical evaluation test at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on July 31.
