the news later today is much more encouraging that the initial bulletin.
Jordan was rushed to hospital by helicopter, but the latest news

This is very good news.
Jordan (on Eurotech's website): "I'd just like to
express my heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped me following
my BTCC accident at Silverstone. In particular, Dr Paul Trafford,
the medical crews, rescue crews and marshals at the scene and the
Coventry and Warwickshire air ambulance. Their professional care
"I'd also like to thank Alan Gow, Bob Kettleboro
and Dennis Carter from the BTCC organising team and apologise for
messing up their timetable.
"I'm feeling a bit groggy and my ribs are sore,
but I hope to be out of hospital in a day or two. I remember hitting
the back of Jason Plato and then waking up in hospital! It was no
one's fault, just one of those classic racing accidents.
"Finally, thanks to all the teams, drivers
and fans who have shown an interest in my condition!"
