AmD Tuning driver Sam Tordoff will not take part in this weekend's British Touring Car Championship round at Knockhill due to family circumstances.

Tordoff released the following statement earlier today:

“My wife Georgina and I are heartbroken to say that our beautiful baby boy, Arlo George, passed away peacefully on Saturday.

“After arriving safely on Monday, 2nd September, it transpired that his kidneys were not formed properly. Sadly no cure or treatment could save him.

“We are devastated, but truly grateful for the precious days that we got to spend with our perfect baby boy.

“We ask that our privacy be respected at this painful time.”
