BTCC Knockhill Race 2: Shedden Scores Home Victory In Honda 1-2

1 Mins read

Gordon Shedden took a home victory in the second British Touring Car race at Knockhill after passing teammate Matt Neal to lead home a Honda 1-2.

Race 1 winner Tom Chilton led away again from pole position at the start, but would lose the lead of the race to Neal on lap 20 when he got sideways at Clark's. Shedden was able to follow his teammate through at the hairpin, with Frank Wrathall also moving past Chilton into a podium spot.

Shedden didn't waste any time in taking the lead of the race from Neal, doing so on the very next lap to the delight of the Scottish crowd. With the pair having been tied for the points lead coming into the race, Shedden's victory moves him into an outright lead of the standings.

Neal had to hold off a charging Wrathall at the end of the race to keep hold of second, Wrathall scoring the first podium finish for an NGTC car.

Chilton held onto fourth place under pressure from Rob Collard, with Tom Boardman close behind in sixth. Jason Plato took seventh, which became pole position for the third race in the reverse grid draw. James Nash and Andrew Jordan came in eighth and ninth in the Vauxhalls, with Nick Foster completing the top ten.

Mat Jackson's day continued to go badly. After his puncture in the first race he was fighting his way through the order in the second until he went off the track and into retirement.
