Honda Yuasa Racing’s ‘Flash’ Gordon Shedden wins 2015 BTCC title
Yuasa power Honda Yuasa Racing’s Gordon Shedden to epic 2015 BTCC title win.

The now double-BTCC-champion arrived at the legendary Brands Hatch GP Circuit season finale on 11 October holding a 23-point lead in the standings.

After a sixth place in the day’s first race, contact from behind in race two left the Scot with damaged suspension and he subsequently struggled to a 19th place finish.

Starting the decider from the same lowly position, Shedden had it all to do, especially after title rival Jason Plato surged into a commanding lead on lap one.

He responded magnificently scything his way up through the field in spectacular fashion.

And after a nail-biting, relentless 18-lap attack, came home in a superb fourth place.

This phenomenal performance saw him clinch the driver’s crown for the second time ahead of his title rival Jason Plato.

Shedden’s team mate, and three-time-BTCC-champion himself, Matt Neal capped his 25th season in the sport by securing third place in the driver’s standings.

Both drivers have enjoyed remarkable success with Honda Yuasa Racing’s Civic Type Rs this year, and their consistency and strong results have been rewarded with victory in the manufacturer’s title.

Yuasa has a long and proud heritage in BTCC racing, having sponsored the Team Dynamics run Honda operation since 2010.

This year’s championship wins now mean the battery manufacturer has claimed the BTCC driver’s crown three times, and manufacturer’s trophy five times in the last six years.

James Hylton, Sales and Marketing Manager at Yuasa Battery Sales (UK) Ltd, said: “We would like to congratulate Gordon on his second BTCC driver’s crown and also Matt and the rest of the team on another manufacturer’s title.

“It has been a classic BTCC season full of exciting, action-packed races.

“Gordon, Matt and the team have done us proud with their determination, performances on track and excellent results.”
