SERDANG: Malaysian rider Mohd Zamri Baba is showing steady progress – four months after crashing at the Sentul International Circuit in Indonesia.
The 32-year-old has returned home to be with his family and has regained awareness.
Zamri was in a coma after being involved in the accident in the second round of the FIM Asia Road Racing Championship in June.
He was hit by another rider after he had crashed onto the gravel bed during Race 1 of the SuperSports 600cc event.
Musashi Boon Siew Honda team manager Zulhelmi Ahmad said that Zamri “is now undergoing intensive speech and mobility therapy” at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital.
“There are so many people that we must thank for this miracle. The teams of doctors in Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur who had given their best to our rider; the Astra Honda family in Indonesia; the staff and management of the Sentul Circuit; and so many other individuals who had worked tirelessly to assist us in our time of need,” said Zulhelmi.
“Words cannot express the depth of our gratitude.”
He also paid tribute to Zamri for his strength and determination.
“Zamri has made amazing strides in his recovery. He is now able to respond to friends and family. It is a testament to his amazing tenacity. He is, no doubt, a fighter,” said Zulhelmi.
The injured rider returned to the track last weekend with his family for a brief visit during Round 8 of the 2015 Petronas AAM Malaysian Cub Prix Championship at the Malaysia Agro Exhibition Park (MAEPS) in Serdang, Selangor.
