Gordon Shedden


Gordon Shedden began his racing career in 1998 in the Scottish Ford XR2 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 thrice.

In 2012, Shedden became the third Scottish driver to lift the BTCC laurels, in a Team Dynamics-prepared Honda Yuasa Racing Civic. Shedden 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, adding his name to an elite group of multiple champions.

Gordon headed into 2016 with a target on his back as he looks to add a third crown to his collection. Shedden overcame an early-season points deficit to sensationally take the title at the last, in the Brands Hatch GP finale and became the first driver since Fabrizio Giovanardi in 2008 to retain his crown.

The 2017 campaign saw Shedden end the year fourth in the overall standings – having finished in the top three every year since 2009 – with the Scot once again piloting the Halfords Yuasa Racing Honda to a number of wins and podiums.

Having taken time out of the BTCC to try his hand in the World Touring Car Cup, Shedden makes his series return in 2021 with Halfords Racing with Cataclean alongside team-mate Dan Rowbottom.
