Brands Hatch

Shedden seals race two win

Gordon Shedden has sealed a sensational race two victory for Honda at Brands Hatch – by just 0.040s from WSR’s Andy Priaulx – after long time leader Jason Plato hit late trouble.

Leading from the front, few could have predicted the drama to follow as Plato’s VW led comfortably from the chasing pack. Shedden’s all-new Civic Type R held second after squeezing by Priaulx on lap one and then past race one winner Rob Collard, whose car seemed to face similar performance troubles on the soft tyre that his team-mate had experienced in the season opener.
