Davenport remains in coma following surgery

Luke Davenport remains in an induced coma following “successful” surgery on his legs and pelvis.

The Motorbase Performance driver was involved in a multicar crash in one of last weekend’s British Touring Car race and was taken by air ambulance to James Cook Hospital. He, Aron Taylor-Smith, and Jeff Smith were taken to hospital following the incident.

In a statement, the team said there are no signs of injuries to Davenport to his head, neck, or spin, and that he has been “briefly conscious”.

“Like 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,” it said.

“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.”

Aron Taylor-Smith and Jeff Smith were also taken to hospital following the incident. Taylor-Smith has been released, whilst Smith has been moved from the intensive care unit to the trauma ward.
