After suffering concussion after an incident at Snetterton two weeks ago, Laser Tools Racing’s Aiden Moffat was pronounced fit to race by the BTCC Medical Director Dr Paul Trafford at Knockhill circuit earlier this morning.
After making heavy contact with an Armco barrier at the second free practice session at the Norfolk circuit, Aiden lost consciousness for a few seconds but was helped out by marshals and walked away from the car. However as a precaution he was airlifted to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge; he returned to the circuit early that afternoon but was forced to sit out the following day’s racing.
‘Snetterton was looking very promising for us,’ Aiden said. ‘We had a test session on Wednesday and we tried a big setup change on the car, which suited me very well. From the changes we were posting very quick times and consistently too.
‘We tried going further with the changes for FP2 and that, combined with possibly pushing too hard/too soon, led to the crash.
‘So absolutely delighted to back at Knockhill this weekend! The car has been repaired and now sports my favourite Knockhill set up. The team has worked very hard to make sure everything is ready for racing at our favourite circuit and the support and good wishes I’ve had from the fans and fellow BTCC drivers and team members has been amazing — I’m certainly ready to bounce back this weekend!’
