Gordon Shedden

Biography

Gordon Shedden began his racing career in 1998 in the Scottish Ford XR2i Series, before going on to win the Ford Fiesta Championship in 2000. Between 2001 and 2005, the Fife-based racer drove in a number of supporting classes to the BTCC including the Porsche Carrera Cup GB as well as the SEAT Cupra Championship, scoring strong successes in both.

‘Flash’ joined the BTCC full-time in 2006 behind the wheel of a Halfords-backed Honda Integra Type R run by Team Dynamics, winning just seventh time out at Oulton Park and placing fourth in the final standings during his maiden campaign. Over the following five years, he tallied regular victories and finished inside the top three in the drivers’ classification three times.

In 2012, Shedden became only the third Scottish driver ever to lift the BTCC laurels. He did so in a Team Dynamics-prepared Honda Yuasa Racing Civic, and he remained a consistent contender in 2013 and 2014, winding up second and third respectively. In 2015, he repeated his title feat in dramatic fashion in the Brands Hatch GP finale, in so doing adding his name to an elite group of multiple champions.

With his Civic Type R undergoing further development over the off-season and the team welcoming Halfords back to the BTCC, Gordon heads into 2016 with a target on his back as he looks to add a third crown to his collection.
