Kenny Brack, who suffered terrible injuries in an October Indycar crash, has been released from hospital.

Brack is undergoing physiotherapy after breaking his breast bone, right thigh bone, lower back and both ankles in the shunt in the Texas 500 on 12 October.

"Every day I am walking a little bit further," said the Swede, who is predicted to make a full recovery.

"I have been walking with crutches. It wears me out really fast, but I feel I am getting stronger every day."

Brack added: "I was ecstatic the other day when the leg doctor came in and said: 'Your bones are healing faster than what we expected and you can start walking on your left leg tomorrow'.

"Since then I have walked nearly every day.

Brack had three rounds of surgery in the weeks following the accident. His last surgery was in November to stabilise his spine.

The driver is being sent to his home, in nearby Arlington, Ohio, where he lives with wife Anita. They are expecting their first child this month.

He will have treament at Dodd Hall Rehabilitation Center at Ohio State University.
