Update on Jordy De Jonge and James Puttrell

1 of 1

MCE British Superbike organisers MSV Racing have released an update on the two riders seriously hurt during Sunday’s National Superstock 600 race at Brands Hatch, describing both as ‘critical but stable.’

Further to the official statement, De Jonge has been described as making a small step forwards in a statement released by his G&S Racing team.

He is in the Royal London Hospital, where he remains in an induced coma as his serious head injury is treated. Jordy was operated on last night to fit a drain to his head injury, in order to relieve swelling.

Puttrell, who was left with serious head, chest and limb injuries following the multiple rider accident at the exit of Graham Hill Bend, is being treated at London’s St. Georges Hospital Tooting.

The MSVR BSB medical and management teams are in close contact with the team and family members and the hospitals, and further information will be released when it becomes available.
