Paul Streather has elected to skip this weekend’s Renault UK Clio Cup action at Thruxton as he continues to suffer after-effects of a concussion sustained earlier this season.

Streather was involved in a heavy collision during pre-event Friday testing for the season opener at Brands Hatch last month, which left him hospitalised and diagnosed with concussion.

After missing that weekend’s racing, Streather was passed fit by the doctors for the visit to Donington Park three weeks ago and he completed the full weekend with WDE Motorsport.

Since then, Streather has also completed the official pre-event TOCA test at Thruxton, but has decided to withdraw from the race meeting as he aims to recover to 100%.

“This hasn’t been an easy decision to make, I’m a racing driver and want to be out there competing, but the sensible approach is to sit-out Thruxton and make sure I’m feeling on top form before I get back out on track again,” said Streather.

“During the recent test at Thruxton I just didn’t feel right in myself, but when you think about it only a few weeks have passed since I was in hospital at Brands so I’m not surprised. I always give 100% when I’m in the car so if I’m not feeling 100%, the right choice is to take more time recovering.”
