Aiden Moffat picks up first podium after penalty for Priaulx

A host of penalties have been handed out following the three races at Knockhill by the series officials, including for triple world champion Andy Priaulx, who loses his podium in race three to the young Scotsman Aiden Moffat.

Tony Gilham Racing, Welch Motorsport and AmD Tuning have all had 10 points deducted for an engine over the allotted amount.

Race one saw penalties for Jack Goff, who received a reprimand and two points on his license for contact with Aiden Moffat, while a similar penalty was handed to Kieran Gallagher for an incident with Daniel Welch.

Rob Austin also received a £500 fine and three points on his license for contact with Matt Neal on the slowing down lap after the chequered flag.

Tom Ingram was the only driver to receive a penalty in race two, having 1.8 seconds added to his time after gaining an unfair advantage on Dave Newsham, which also earned Ingram a grid drop penalty for the final race.

For race three, Andy Priaulx was handed a 3.5 second penalty, demoting him to fourth, for passing Aiden Moffat under yellow flags, promoting the young Scot to third and scoring his first BTCC podium.

The stewards also looked at an incident between Andy Priaulx and Jason Plato at the hairpin, but no penalty was given.
