Description Going down the hill, Menu and Burt touched sending the latter's Volvo off onto the grass. After colliding heavily with the beginning of an armco barrier, the car spun around and came to a halt. Burt was unconscious as marshals cut him free from the wreckage of his Volvo, but regained consciousness after 15 minutes. He was evacuated to Chester Hospital as a precautionary measure, suffering from severe concussion. It's believed he was saved from more serious injury in the 7g impact by the Volvo 'survival cell', developed to meet strict safety rules imposed by championship organiser TOCA.
