AIM Yamaha's British Supersport rider Dennis Hobbs is aiming to make a return to the series at the Croft round after losing a finger and suffering a bad break to his right arm in a crash at Thruxton.
The hard-as-nails Northerner underwent an operation to pin and plate a spiral fracture in his right humerus and also has limited leg movement, plus he no longer has his right ring finger. Thruxton was also the scene of a horror crash for Hobbs last year, which put him out for the rest of the season.
"I'm better now that I am out and about to be honest. I would like to be back for Cadwell but I think that is too soon and I might be back for the following round," said Hobbs, talking to bikesportnews.com this evening.
"It was a freak crash. I don't really know what happened and I haven't watched it on telly yet. I am going to give Snetterton a miss but I will be back in the paddock at Knockhill."
