Ratthapark Wilairot has left hospital and returned to light training, almost three weeks after he was involved in a fatal motorcycle accident in his native Thailand.

The Thai Honda PTT Singha-SAG rider was knocked unconscious in the accident, which killed his friend, and suffered severe bruising to his head and hands.

However, while he endured a time in intensive care at the Bumrungrad Hospital in Bangkok when was first admitted on 6th December, Wilairot is making a fast recovery now and is now able to go home.

Indeed, Wilairot has already begun a daily routine of 30 minutes on a static exercise bike whilst still in hospital.

It is hoped the 22-year-old will be fit in time to start the 2011 Moto2 season.
