Aiden Moffat set for BTCC and Forth Road Bridge Crossing
Aiden Moffat is one of four drivers who calls Knockhill his home circuit, and adding to the usual homecoming celebrations the 17-year-old will also be taking part in the unique Forth Road Bridge crossing on Thursday 21st August.
Aiden will join fellow BTCC stars – Gordon Shedden, Dave Newsham and Glynn Geddie – as well as a selection of six iconic Jim Clark cars at the Forth Road Bridge crossing that will mark both the start of the Bridge’s 50th Anniversary celebrations, and the 50th Anniversary of Jim Clark’s famous BTCC title win of 1964. A title Jim won whilst he was the reigning Formula One World Champion.
Moffat made BTCC history a year ago at the Fife venue, becoming the youngest ever driver to race in the series. Speaking to Knockhill circuit earlier this week, he said: “With the Bridge crossing, Jim Clark tribute and the Circuit celebrating their own 40th Anniversary, the Knockhill round is going to be a massive weekend for me. I’ve been across the Forth Bridge so many times before, but this is one journey that will certainly be one I’ll never forget…”
Members of the press and public who wish to attend the bridge crossing are invited to the former Lorry Park on the South side (South Queensferry) of the Bridge from 9.30am, where the BTCC and Jim Clark cars will be on display. All the cars will then head over the Forth Road Bridge at 11.00am, before making their way to form a special Jim Clark display at the Knockhill BTCC DPS Group Raceday on Sunday 24th August.
