No less than three 12 weeks will pass until Mike Conway makes his return to the cockpit following his monster accident in Sunday's Indianapolis 500. The news means that the Dreyer & Reinbold driver will contest, at maximum, only another three races in 2010.
Having come together with the slowing Ryan Hunter-Reay's Andretti Autosport, Conway's leg was broken when he flew into catch fencing before landing - in a completely shattered car - upside down on the race track.
Since the weekend, it has also been discovered that the Bromley man has suffered back injuries.
'Mike Conway had surgery Sunday night to repair fractures to his lower left leg,' reads an official statement from series governing body the Indy Racing League (IRL). 'He also has a soft tissue injury to his lower left leg and is anticipated to have another surgical procedure later this week.
Additionally, Conway has a compression fracture of one of his thoracic vertebrae and is being fitted for a back brace, which he will wear for three months and will prevent him from racing."
Hunter-Reay was also physically affected in the shunt, sustaining a left thumb injury.
