New livery for Honda in BTCC

Halfords Yuasa Racing took the wraps off its 2017 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship challenger during the traditional pre-season Autosport International Show at Birmingham’s NEC this morning, as defending champion Gordon Shedden and fellow triple title-winner Matt Neal unveiled their strikingly-liveried Honda Civic Type R to widespread acclaim.

Honda is the most successful marque in the modern era of the BTCC – commonly regarded as the world’s toughest tin-top series – having sped to no fewer than six Drivers’, five Manufacturers’ and six Teams’ titles since 2005.

Shedden takes race 1 win at the Rock

Gordon Shedden led from start to finish to win the first Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship race at Rockingham.

In vastly different conditions to the torrential rain in which the Honda driver took pole yesterday, Shedden pulled out a lead of nearly three seconds over the 18 lap race.

BTCC stars drive across bridge

Stars support ‘Race on the Track, Stay Safe on the Road’ initiative ahead of fantastic Forth Road Bridge crossing.

A select group of stars from the 2015 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship drove their respective BTCC machinery across the iconic Forth Road Bridge earlier today (20 August), with a very important Road Safety message at the forefront of the activity.

Honda duo full of Eastern promise

Honda Yuasa Racing’s dynamic duo Gordon Shedden and Matt Neal are revved-up to get back on-track at Snetterton next weekend (8/9 August), and are targeting an immediate return to the top step of the rostrum following a long summer break.

Shedden and Neal headed into the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship mid-season hiatus with the momentum on their side, sitting first and third in the title standings – separated by just 22 points – as Honda comfortably tops the manufacturers’ table. They will be looking to maintain their rich run of form in Norfolk, where both are previous winners.

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.
