Shed­den to race in TCR In­ter­na­tional

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Three-time Bri­tish Tour­ing Car cham­pion Gor­don Shed­den will con­test the fi­nal round of the TCR In­ter­na­tional Se­ries in Dubai later this month, and hopes that it could lead to more chances to race over­seas.

Shed­den, who races a Team Dy­nam­ics Honda Civic in the BTCC, will re­place Rob Huff in the Leop­ard Rac­ing Team WRT op­er­a­tion at the wheel of a Volk­swa­gen Golf TCR.

The Scots­man will be part­nered with Jean-karl Ver­nay, who is gun­ning for the crown at the Novem­ber 18 event.

Shed­den said: “I have driven a TCR car be­fore, but only in a demo. I got a lit­tle feel for it, but rac­ing one will be to­tally dif­fer­ent. It is a new car and a new cir­cuit for me, but I am look­ing for­ward to help­ing Jean-karl out.

“This is only a one-off at the mo­ment, but I would love to do more var­ied rac­ing and that is cer­tainly on my radar. Who knows where this could lead, but I would love to tackle all kinds of pro­grammes.

“I will look out for all op­por­tu­ni­ties, but I will also re­main firmly com­mit­ted to Team Dy­nam­ics, Honda and the Bri­tish Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship.”
