National race three postponed after first lap red flag

Avon Tyres National FF1600 Championship’s third race at Knockhill has been postponed, following an incident during the opening lap which caused a red flag.

A safety car was deployed when Matt Round-Garrido went off into the gravel at the opening corner, but a concertina effect on the pit straight led to two separate accidents and a red flag.

Niall Murray and Sebastian Melrose both had to take evasive action, with Murray’s Van Diemen ending up in the wall on the pit straight.

Organisers have confirmed the postponed race will be restarted later in the day at approximately 5:30pm.
