Ex McLaren racer has high speed crash.

Kiwi rally star Emma Gilmour has been hospitalized after a high speed crash in during a practice session for the EXtreme Island X Prix in Sardinia.

Gilmour made history as the first-ever female driver to claim a podium finish for Kiwi racing team McLaren.

“It was a terrible start to the weekend. I suffered a high speed crash on my first outing on the track. Such a shame as the car was feeling great after our driving on Wednesday.

I’m gutted for the team… but wishing them luck and cheering them on,” Gilmour said.
