Luke Davenport is now “conscious and communicating’ after being moved from ICU (intensive care unit) to the high dependency unit at James Cook University Hospital.
The Motorbase Performance racer was one of three drivers that were hospitalised following the high-speed accident that took place in the early stages of qualifying at Croft on June 10th.
Suffering multiple chest injuries, lung damage, a broken right leg, a broken pelvis, a broken right arm and a concussion, Davenport had been in an induced coma.
“Luke is getting much better,” a statement from Davenport’s family read. “A huge thank you to everyone who has been in touch, it’s really helped us as family to support him through this difficult time.
“We have received cards and well wishes from the marshals, fans, extrication crew, medical staff, BTCC drivers, sponsors, staff and fans. We’ve even had messages from teams in LeMans, Mexico City and New Zealand!”
“The BTCC is a big family and we’re very grateful for the support.”
