Aiden Moffat optimistic of track return after concussion

Aiden MoffatAiden Moffat admits he is confident of returning to BTCC action this weekend at his home event of Knockhill after suffering a concussion at Snetterton earlier this month.

Forced to subsequently sit out the meeting at the Norfolk circuit, the Laser Tools Racing driver is now itching to get back behind the wheel of his Mercedes Benz A-Class as the series makes its annual visit north of the border for rounds 19, 20 and 21.

Making contact with the inside armco-barrier between Riches corner and the Montreal hairpin during second practice at Snetterton, the Scotsman was momentarily knocked unconscious before coming round. He was then airlifted to hospital before returning to the circuit but did not feature in the day’s three races.

Expected to undergo a medical examination before being declared fit to race, Moffat is confident that he will be able to rejoin the fray.

Speaking to BTCC Crazy at Snetterton, Moffat said: “I had a bit of a pounding head and a stiff neck but I was more disappointed for all of the team because they’ve worked really hard and we’ve made progress with the car.

“I’m 100% aiming to be out at Knockhill though – it is my home meeting so there is no chance I’m missing that one. Obviously I have to listen to what the medics say but I’m confident of being ready to get back behind the wheel.”
