Cirencester motorbike star Josh Day is now out of intensive care following a serious crash at the weekend. 

Josh was competing for Astro JJR Triumph Quattro Group in the British Supersport Championship at Donington Park on Saturday, when he crashed heavily with another rider. 

He sustained a significant head injury and broken jaw and was put in a medically induced coma before being transferred to Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham.

His sedation was decreased on Sunday morning so he could wake from the induced coma and it has now been confirmed that Josh is out of intensive care. 

A message posted to Josh's Facebook page on behalf of his family on Tuesday night said: "They have now performed the surgery to repair his jaw which was deemed a success.

"He continues to exceed expectations of those looking after him and they assure us that his condition continues to improve rapidly all be it to their amazement.

"In the hours following our visit we have had contact with him and it’s amazing to finally hear our Josh returning to us. 

"He will have at least another night's rest before the physio team will attempt to get him on his feet.

"The journey we have been on as a family in the past 72 hours has been extreme, from the potential situation we were presented with late on Saturday to what we have experienced tonight is simply a miracle."

 Josh is a former Cirencester Deer Park pupil and three-time Ducati TriOptions Cup winner.
