FLASH IS BACK!
Team Dynamics confirm return of three-time BTCC Champion Gordon Shedden
Team Dynamics has today (5 March) confirmed that Gordon Shedden will re-join the squad for the 2021 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship.
The triple BTCC Champion returns following a three-year hiatus from Britain’s premier motorsport series and 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 third contest at the Hampshire circuit during the 8/9 May weekend.
Gordon Shedden said: “I can’t wait to get back in the car! 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.”
Matt Neal added: “It’s great to have Flash back in the car, 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!”
