Plato v Shedden: The 2015 BTCC Title Permutations

The Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship will go to a deciding round at Brands Hatch GP circuit, so how can Gordon Shedden or Jason Plato win the championship?

Team BMR’s Plato sits 12 points adrift heading into the final race, but he admitted he has the momentum on his side after Shedden could only manage 19th in race two in Kent.

Plato starts on the front row for race three, and would require a finish of fourth or higher to win a third BTCC title over his Honda Yuasa Racing rival.

On the other hand, should Plato go on to win the final race of the day, Shedden would need to finish sixth or better to be crowned champion for a second time.

If Plato finishes second however, Shedden would have to finish 10th or better to be champion, his team-mate Matt Neal starting on the front row of the grid alongside Plato to make it more interesting.

Third place for Plato finally would mean Shedden needs 12th place for the title, the final race getting underway at 17:09.
