Following his high-speed crash at Knockhill four weeks ago, Kirton rider Aaron Clarke is making a speedy recovery.

He was knocked out in the crash and broke his right upper arm in three places which needed surgery to plate and pin the bones in Scotland before he made the long journey back home to Lincolnshire.

Aaron is looking a lot better and had the dressings changed on his left hand which was badly grazed before seeing the consultant last Tuesday to see how the broken bones are knitting together.

He said: “Its been a long four weeks with both arms out of action, but the left hand is almost better and the right arm is coming on nicely.

“I can now do a bit of training to keep my fitness up and also to get the arm moving again.

“I am anticipating making my come back to the race track at Cadwell over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

“I had hoped to race at Oulton Park but decided to take a bit more time to get myself fully fit and then race at my home track.”
