Sam Tordoff to sit out Knockhill race weekend

Sam Tordoff has announced that he will not take part in the British Touring Car Championship races at Knockhill this weekend due to a bereavement.

The Cobra Sport AmD driver issued the following statement:

“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.”

TouringCarTimes team would like to extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to Tordoff’s family.
