Laser Tools Racing's Aiden Moffat has withdrawn from today's three British Touring Car Championship races on medical grounds following his heavy FP2 shunt.

The Mercedes A-Class driver had already missed qualifying but the outcome over his participation of the event remained unclear until yesterday evening.

Moffat's Mercedes left the circuit during a high-speed off during turns one and two [Richies and Montreal]. The teenagers A-Class subsequently slammed into the barriers, which prompted an immediate red flag.

After the incident occurred, it emerged that Moffat had shown symptoms consistent of concussion and was transferred to the medical centre before later being flown to the local hospital for further precautionary tests.

Moffat was given a 'general all-clear' but it was confirmed that he did indeed suffer concussion and is said to have no recollection of the accident.

The 18-year old will continue to be assessed over the coming days, though he is expected to be fit in time to compete at Knockhill in two-weeks time.
