Shedden eager to fight back.

Gordon Shedden has been left with work to do on race day at Silverstone after a disappointing qualifying session for the latest rounds of the HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship.

The Team Halfords man was eighth quickest in the two free practice sessions at the Northamptonshire venue but was struggling with a lack of straight line speed on his Honda Civic.

That led the Team Dynamics-run team to change the engine on the car ahead of qualifying but Shedden struggled during the session and will start the opening race down in 15th place on the grid, having endured a trip through the gravel at Brooklands while trying to climb up the order.

“We struggled for speed in FP2 so we decided to change the engine,” he said. “The car feels ok, but it's just not fast enough on the straights. Then I tried to brake a bit late into Brooklands and ran wide across the gravel and that was it.

“The guys did a great job to fix the car and this isn't reflected on the grid. We'll look at it and come back fighting. At least I should be able to do some good overtaking!”
