Aiden Moffat has been deemed fit to return to the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) for the Knockhill round of the championship, after being concussed in a practice accident at the previous round at Snetterton.
Moffat was briefly knocked unconscious in his accident during second practice at the Norfolk venue, leading to the Scot being forced to sit out the remainder of the weekend after having been taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge for a check-up.
Despite just two weeks between the events, Moffat has now been assessed and deemed to be fit to return at his home round at Knockhill.
“Snetterton was looking very promising for us,” summarised Moffat. “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 [I’m] 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.
“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!”
