Sebastien Bourdais Cleared By Medics To Race


Sebastien Bourdais says he’s been cleared by doctors to return to racing.

It’s uncertain when he’ll make his first IndyCar start since his Indianapolis 500 qualifying crash back in May.

The Frenchman underwent surgery for the injuries and spent five days in hospital following a massive shunt into the ‘Brickyard’ barrier.

While he was originally thought to be ruled out for the season, despite aiming to return for the season finale at Sonoma on September 17, Bourdais returned to the cockpit of an IndyCar late last month during testing at Mid-Ohio.

On Tuesday the Dale Coyne driver tweeted: “Some of you might wonder why I was in Indy today… Well, I had the final appointment with Doc and guess what? All clear, let’s go racing!”

Bourdais has already indicated that he won’t compete on any ovals between now and the end of the season, which paves the way for a possible return for Watkins Glen on September 3.
