Regis Laconi has been allowed to return home almost a month on from his heavy practice crash at the South African round of the FIM Superbike World Championship at Kyalami.
The DFX Corse rider was placed in a medically-induced coma after the accident and subsequently underwent an operation to repair two fractured vertebrae.
He has been recovering at the Sunninghill Hospital near Johannesburg but has now received the all-clear from his doctors, although a return to the track remains some way off.
“Regis Laconi is at home,” read at DFX team statement.
“The French pilot, the victim of a terrible fall in Kyalami, arrived at Aix-en-Provence, where he currently resides, on Friday 5 June.”
The 33-year-old had earlier been taken to a local hospital for a check up but was allowed to leave “without restrictions whatsoever”.
“Regis has physically recovered 100%,” the statement continued.
“Laconi is speaking normally and is regaining day by day his medium- and long-term memory.
“He has already expressed his desire to return to action, but that decision must be carefully scrutinised at the end of his recovery by the medical and sports authorities.”
Lorenzo Lanzi has been drafted in as Laconi’s replacement at DFX Corse for the remainder of the season.
