Round three at Thruxton last month ended in disaster for the West Thurrock-based team after a huge accident in qualifying caused extensive damage to the car, with driver Mike Bushell lucky to escape with nothing more than severe ligament damage.

Bushell released from hospital driver Mike Bushell has been released from hospital following his crash in yesterday afternoon's Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship qualifying session.

Bushell had been taken to Southampton General Hospital with a suspected broken femur, but doctors diagnosed ligament damage and discharged him on Saturday evening.
