1 of 1

The families of injured National Superstock 600 riders Jordy De Jonge and james Puttrell have released a futher update on their condition, as the pair continue to recover from horrific injuries sustained on the opening lap at Brands Hatch.

Jordy has so far left medics astounded by his recovery since awaking from an artificially induced coma on Tuesday. The seventeen year old has, since showing signs of waking on Friday, moved out of intensive care, spoken with his parents and recollected the crash, and even completed his first physiotherapy exercises.

He remains in the Royal London Hospital, where he is scheduled for a further operation on his head for next week.

James, who is being treated in London’s St George’s Hospital Tooting, is still stable and has had two operations that went well. He is still sedated but is showing small signs of improvement.
