Further update on Luke Davenport
Further to his accident during qualifying for round 13 of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship at Croft circuit on Saturday, June 10th, we (Motorbase Performance) are pleased to report that Luke is now conscious and communicating and has been moved to the high dependency unit at James Cook Hospital in Middlesbrough.
Luke’s family have extended their gratitude to everyone that has been in touch; “Luke is getting much better. 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.”
Luke continues his recovery at the James Cook Hospital and we will post further updates under the direction of Luke’s family and would ask for their privacy to be respected at this difficult time.
