Motorbase Performance has released a statement with positive news on the condition of 2015 British GT Rookie of the Year Luke Davenport, who was hospitalised after an incident during the BTCC round Croft last weekend.
“Further to his accident during qualifying for round 13 of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship at Croft circuit on Saturday, June 10th, Luke remains in the excellent care of the staff at the ICU of James Cook Hospital in Middlesbrough.
“He has undergone a number of successful operations on his leg and pelvis and we are happy to report that there are no signs of any injuries to his head, neck or spine.
“Luke has been briefly conscious during his time on the ICU and the current plan is for him to hopefully be brought out of the induced coma later this week.
“Once again we would like to pass our sincerest thanks to the marshals, BTCC extrication team, BTCC medical team, Croft circuit staff, Air Ambulance Crew, TOCA and the wonderful staff at James Cook Hospital for their professionalism, support and ongoing care.
“We will post further updates in due course, but would ask for the family’s privacy to be respected at this difficult time.”
DSC sends Luke, and the other two drivers seriously affected by the incident, Aron Taylor-Smith and Jeff Smith, its best wishes at this time.
