After their car was cut wide-open, Slavov and his co-driver Petar Iliev were taken to the hospital in Sliven, from where they should have been transported to Sofia by helicopter.

Slavov was placed under assisted breathing, but despite the efforts of the doctors, he died.

According to latest information, the condition of Iliev has been stabilised and there is no threat for his life.

The organisers have immediately suspended the race.
