Conway Continues Road To Recovery

1 Mins read

Mike Conway has made further progress since his monster shunt in May’s Indy 500, getting back into a simulator for the first time since the accident.

The Brit was only able to remove his neck brace at the end of June, after an operation to heal a compression fracture to his vertebrae, as well as several fractures to his left leg.

After returning to the UK last month, he has embarked on a rehabilitation program to try and get him prepared to return to racing near the end of the year.

“We are very pleased with Mike's progress,” said Dan Williams, part of Conway’s rehabilitation program. “As he continues to work through the rehabilitation programme he's in good sprits and working very hard towards making a full recovery and getting back on the track.”

Considering he is still on crutches his speed was impressive, only three tenths behind young Finnish F3 driver (and fully fit) Matias Laine.
