The Formula 3 Macau Grand Prix underwent a lengthy delay on Sunday night after a high-speed crash saw Sophia Florsch’s car fly over the barrier in a terrifying incident.

The German has been transferred to hospital as the race was stopped after she was launched into the air and over the crash barriers following a shunt at Lisboa Bend.

The collision with Sho Tsuboi’s TOM car, which was during the opening lap of the race, caused her to lose her wheels with the car going through the debris fencing and striking a photographers’ bunker and landing back on its wheels.

A statement from the organisers said that both Florsch and Tsuboi were conscious in hospital.

Floersch was conscious and transported to hospital, later tweeting that she would undergo surgery on Monday.

“Just wanted to let everybody know that I am fine but will be going into surgery tomorrow morning,” she said.

Sophia Floersch, 17, will undergo surgery after the spectacular airborne crash in the Formula 3 Macau Grand Prix on Sunday.

Video footage showed Floersch appearing to clip Japanese driver Sho Tsuboi’s car while flying off the track at high speed on a tight right-hand bend on lap four. Floersch’s car then went through a catch fence, hit a structure on the perimeter and dropped to the ground with safety officials immediately on the scene. The incident prompted an immediate red flag and a delay of more than an hour before the race was restarted.

History was made in the final Moto3 race of the year as 15-year-old Can Oncu triumphed in Valencia.

The Turkish teenager ran away with the race in the end, winning by a margin of more than four seconds after race leader Tony Arbolino crashed out.

The previous record was held by British rider Scott Redding, who was 15 years and 170 days old when he won his first Moto3 race in 2008 in the UK but Oncu, at 15 years and 119 days, has now broken that record in the wet at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo.
