Warren Scott will undergo further medical checks at the John Radcliffe Hospital after the Team BMR owner driver suffered a huge high speed accident during the first British Touring Car Championship practice at Silverstone.

The Volkswagen CC driver had set the third quickest time of FP1 but the 43-year old then hit the wall at Copse Corner with three-minutes of the session still to go.

Whilst inflicting massive front-end damage to his BMR Volkswagen, Scott - citing lower back pain - had to be carefully extracted from the car by the emergency crew and was immediately sent to the circuit's medical centre.
