IRC: Co-driver Durant to make full recovery

"The most important thing is that Robbie's injury was not more serious..." - team manager Iwan Evans

Robbie Durant, the British co-driver injured in a crash on the Mabanol Sliven Rally in Bulgaria at the end of last month, is expected to make a full recovery, it has been confirmed.

Durant was due to undergo surgery in hospital in Plovdiv earlier this week on a cracked and compressed vertebra before flying home. His driver Harry Hunt was uninjured in the accident on the 11th stage of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge event.

“The most important thing is that Robbie's injury was not more serious and that he will make a full recovery very soon,” said team manager Iwan Evans. “He's in great spirits and we're already looking forward to Sanremo, where Harry will drive a Super 2000 car in the IRC for the first time.

“Following the accident the rally and medical staff were brilliant, so we can't thank them enough.”
