Bardney motorbike racing star Ivan Lintin is showing positive signs of recovering from a serious injury, according to reports.
Lintin crashed at the Southern 100 road races in the Isle of Man last month but is no longer classed as in a critical condition in a Liverpool hospital.
The 33-year-old was involved in a collision during the 600cc Challenge race on 12 July in which another racer, James Cowton, died.
A spokesman for Linitin’s racing team - Dafabet UK Devitt - said he was now stable in hospital.
It is hoped he will be transferred to a Lincolnshire hospital soon.
