Gordon Shedden will not start on pole position for Round Four of the 2021 British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) after failing scrutineering checks post qualifying this afternoon.

Shedden finished top in the Top Ten Showdown at Snetterton this afternoon pipping Colin Turkington and Tom Ingram to start at the front tomorrow with a first pole since 2016 after rejoining the championship this season with Halfords Racing with Cataclean.

But a ‘technical infringement’ has stopped that from happening with the aforementioned Team BMW driver now set to start on pole alongside Ingram who has achieved EXCELR8 Motorsport‘s best qualifying result.
