Andrew Palmer continues to recover in Connecticut following his accident at Lime Rock Park on Saturday, May 28. He sustained a head injury in that accident.

Bentley Team Absolute issued the following update on Thursday morning, ahead of this weekend’s pair of Pirelli World Challenge races at Road America:

Ahead of the race weekend, Andrew’s manager Mike Perry made the following statement on behalf of the Palmer family:

“As Andrew continues to recover, we are all very grateful for the overwhelming support from the entire motorsport community.

“Both Sharon Hospital and Hartford Hospital in Connecticut have been amazing, and we would like to thank the incredible doctors and nurses for everything they have done so far.

“Andrew has demonstrated great strength and shows signs of improvement everyday, and, although we are not yet in a position to give an update on Andrew’s long-term prognosis, we are remaining positive. Your respect of the family’s privacy at this time is appreciated.”

The team continues to evaluate options for the No. 87 entry for the remaining half of the PWC season, but at present time, a decision has not been made.

Adderly Fong will be the only Bentley Team Absolute driver at Road America this weekend.
