Andrew Palmer has shown “signs of improvement everyday” according to his manager Mike Perry, who has issued a statement on behalf of Palmer’s family, in providing an update on the condition of the 21-year-old.

Palmer remains at Hartford Hospital following last month’s serious accident in warmup for the Pirelli World Challenge round at Lime Rock Park.

His condition has not been disclosed, beyond the previously announced head injury per Bentley.

“As Andrew continues to recover, we are all very grateful for the overwhelming support from the entire motorsport community,” Perry said in a statement.

“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.”

Bentley Team Absolute is fielding only a single Bentley Continental GT3 this weekend at Road America for Adderly Fong.
