Floersch was forced to undergo a gruelling ten-hour surgery to repair her broken spine and remove a bone splinter dangerously close to her spinal cord.

But little over a week later, she addressed the media as she bravely promised to continue "chasing her dream".

And Floersch bravely re-lived the sickening moment, saying: "I think the video says it all, to be honest.

"It was my first-ever big crash and it took me some time to get over it, but I am over it now.

"I think now a new chapter starts and as I said, it was a bad crash, but the Van Amersfoort has a very good stable chassis…

"I'm still here, walking and everything is good… I will be back racing and chasing my dream.

"This happened and I survived. I survived very good – also thanks to the hospital.

"Now I'm going to continue and work back again to where I ended, actually."
