Current British Touring Car Championship points' Gordon Shedden insists he isn't feeling the pressure ahead of this weekend's title decider around the Brands Hatch GP circuit.

The destiny of this season's championship still remains undecided but the Team Dynamics driver took a major leap forward towards claiming his second title in the series after making the most Jason Plato's 'Topsy-turvy' Silverstone adventure.

With just three races to go, the stage looks set for it to be a straight showdown between Shedden and Team BMR's Plato but defending champion Colin Turkington, Honda team mate Matt Neal and MG's Andrew Jordan all remain within a shout of spoiling the 2012 champion's party.

Shedden has managed to create a certain degree of clear air between himself and Volkswagen's Plato after a pivotal brace of top-five finishes at Silverstone has put the Scot 23-points ahead of the former double champion.

"I'm feeling good. Silverstone was always going to be a little bit of an unknown for us given how the previous three years had gone there - but our results proved just how good this Civic Type R truly is," said Shedden.

"I think we exceeded even our own expectations. Now we go to Brands Hatch GP, and there really is no better place to end the season. It's a great circuit - old-school and a proper drivers' track, and everybody loves racing there.

"I'm confident our Civic Type R will be awesome again and I'm not feeling any pressure - just excitement. I feel comfortable inside the team and at one with the car."

Despite feeling 'relaxed' ahead of the championship crescendo, Shedden says his previous final day experience has served him with the knowledge that anything can still happen with 67-points still left on the table.

The Honda Civic Type-R driver marked his last previous appearance around the GP layout of the Kent circuit by winning the rain sodden 2014 finale, which ended a 21-race winless streak following a tricky campaign.

"I can draw upon our experience from the last few years, I'm relaxed and I'm in a happy place," Shedden continued.

"I'm sure the complexion of the championship will twist and turn quite a bit over the course of the weekend - as it always tends to do - but I'll just approach it the same way I have all season. That's worked pretty well so far, so I don't see any reason to change now."
