Motorbase Performance has confirmed Luke Davenport is “conscious and communicating”.
Davenport had been in a coma following the accident at the British Touring Car Championship qualifying at Croft earlier this month.
He has now been moved to the high dependency unit at James Cook hospital.
His family has thanked the support from fans.
“Like is getting much better. A huge thank you to everyone who has been in touch. It’s really helped us as a 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 Le Mans, Mexico City and New Zealand!
“The BTCC is a big family and we’re very grateful for the support.”
Jeff Smith, who was also hospitalised due to the crash, is also set to be released from hospital today.
