Shedden to make BTCC return with Team Dynamics
Updated: Mar 29, 2021
Three Time British Touring Car Champion Gordon Shedden is to make his return to the series - reuniting with Team Dynamics.
After bowing out of the BTCC at the end of 2017, Shedden competed in the World Touring Car Championship with Audi. However, due to little success and that Audi officially pulled their support for the team, Shedden was left on the sidelines.
RIDING THE KERBS: In his two seasons in the WTCC, Shedden claimed a win and a single further podium in his 57 races.
In Pre-Season testing last year for the BTCC, Shedden stood in for good friend and former team-mate Matt Neal when a cycling accident left Neal unable to drive the Honda Civic FK8.
The confirmation of Shedden's comeback follows the news that Dan Cammish, who replaced Shedden at Team Dynamics, would not be continuing with the team this year.
Shedden, 42, is one of the championship's most successful drivers with three titles to his name. His titles, in 2012, 2015 and 2016, and his 48 wins have came from driving with Team Dynamics.
“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."
TRIPLE CHAMP: Shedden celebrates on the podium at Brands Hatch whilst holding the championship trophy and the Scottish flag as Alan Gow pours champagne over him.
Team Dynamics announced on the departure of Cammish that they would have an announcement on one of their two drivers by today.
There has been no further confirmation on whether Neal, who's dad founded the team, will be on the grid this year with the Three time Champion previously hinting at possible retirement.
Apart from the annoucement on a second seat at Team Dynamics, Team Hard are the only team left on the grid yet to confirm their final driver.
