Shedden to race in TCR International
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.”
