Aiden Moffat withdrawn from Snetterton event
Aiden Moffat has been withdrawn from the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship event at Snetterton following his accident earlier today (8 August).
Moffat lost control of his Laser Tools Racing Mercedes A-Class during free practice two and spun wildly at high speed. His car eventually made contact with the barrier at approximately 75mph.
The teenager was able to walk away from the accident unassisted but immediately began to show signs of suffering from concussion. After being assessed by the TOCA Medical Team in Snetterton’s Medical Centre a decision was taken to airlift him to a nearby hospital for a precautionary scan.
Moffat was given a general all-clear and was later released from hospital. He should face no long-lasting effects from the accident but has been withdrawn from racing on medical grounds after it was confirmed he had suffered from concussion.
The Scotsman returned to the circuit early on Saturday evening where he confirmed he had no recollection of the incident and naturally that he was not feeling 100%. He will continue to be assessed over the coming days but all being well he expects to return to action for the next event, his home round at Knockhill.
Everyone involved with the BTCC wishes Aiden all the best in his recovery.
