Shedden heads Thruxton practice

Gordon Shedden tops practice for the third BTCC round of the season at Thruxton
Gordon Shedden dominated practice for the latest rounds of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship at Thruxton, topping the times in both sessions at the Hampshire circuit.

In the first session, Shedden set what would prove to be the best time of both sessions combined, with a lap of 1min 20.968secs putting him more than a second clear of team-mate Matt Neal, with MG of Jason Plato slotting into third.

Rob Collard was fourth ahead of his home event, with he top six completed by Andrew Jordan and Jeff Smith. That was despite Jordan stopping on track early on with a mechanical issue and Smith bringing out the red flag when he hit the bales at the chicane.

Andy Neate failed to set a time with a mechanical issue with the engine for Rob Austin's Audi was still en-route back to the UK from tuner Lehmann in Liechtenstein.

Shedden then topped the times again in FP2, albeit with a time more than a second slower than in FP1. He was however still a second clear of the closest challenger, with Plato and Neal swapping positions behind in second and third.

Jordan was fourth, with Dave Newsham and Jeff Smith rounding out the top six.

The time around, Aron Smith was sidelined with an issue on his Ford Focus while Austin again sat the session out as the engine on his car was installed. Adam Morgan meanwhile failed to build on a fine seventh in FP1 with a fuel pressure issue being followed by a water leak.
