Inside BTCC: Shedden’s season

Inside BTCC looks at how Gordon Shedden became the 2012 British Touring Car Champion
It proved to be a dramatic season in the British Touring Car Championship and it ended with a new champion being crowned in the shape of Gordon Shedden.

The Honda driver faced a huge battle with team-mate Matt Neal and MG's Jason Plato but came out of the season finale at Brands Hatch having wrapped up the crown for the first time – becoming the first Scottish driver since John Cleland to take the trophy home.

The latest Inside BTCC looks at how Shedden emerged from 2012 as the British Touring Car Champion, with comments from the main men in the race for the crown.

There are also features on Rob Austin, Frank Wrathall, the BTCC's own radio show Tin Top Tuesday and a countdown of the top ten drivers from the 2012 season…

Flash was the right man to win and he deserved it. I just hope next year the rules don't try to socialize the championship as it was this year. If the green movement gets involved the car with less carbon footprint get's the championship as a bonus and if the driver lies and tells he won the championship as a bonus because man-made global warming is true he get's British personality of the year as an extra bonus!
