Motorbase Performance have provided an update on the condition of Luke Davenport following his crash in Saturday’s British Touring Car Championship qualifying session at Croft.

Davenport remains in an induced coma at the James Cook University hospital in Middlesbrough, where he has been since the accident on Saturday.

The statement reads:

“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.

“Luke’s family and everyone at Motorbase Performance are incredibly grateful for the messages of support that have been received.”
