Shedden returns looking for fourth title

Gordon Shedden will re-join the British Touring Car Championship, returning to TeamDynamics where he won three drivers' championships in the 2010s.

The return comes after a three-year hiatus from Britain’s premier motorsport series and Shedden will be looking to add to his impressive record so far.

Shedden made his debut in the series at his home circuit, Knockhill, back in 2001 but it wasn’t until 2006 that the Scotsman secured a full-time drive in the BTCC.

The 42-year-old won the overall Drivers’ title in 2012, 2015 and 2016 and has claimed all of his 48 race victories in Team Dynamics-run Honda machinery.

With the 2021 season commencing at Thruxton, Shedden is set to make his 350th BTCC race start in the Hampshire circuit's third race on May 9th.

“I can’t wait to get back in the car," said Shedden. "I have kept in touch with the team throughout and obviously jumped in the car early in 2020, when Matt was injured, and it felt great.

'That was the first time I had driven the new car and it felt right from the off. I’ve been keeping an eye on the Championship, and it looks mega competitive, but my fight and determination is as high as it’s ever been, so I’ll be giving it my all.”

“It’s great to have Flash back in the car," added Matt Neal. "he knows the team and he knows the way we work. He showed last year that he hadn’t lost his pace, so we are expecting great things of him, no pressure!”
