Gordon Shedden Wins BTCC Race Two at Thruxton

Gordon Shedden has won race two of the day at Thruxton following a battle with race one winner, Andrew Jordan.

Shedden managed to get the better of the 2013 champion and was awarded the win with one lap still remaining when the race was red-flagged.

BMW’s Rob Collard managed to finish on the final step of the podium, finishing ahead of Matt Neal who had a relatively quiet race.

Mat Jackson finish in fifth place, just ahead of Colin Turkington in the second BMW.

At the start it was Jordan who once again made a decent start, along with Collard who made his way up into second place.

Shedden made a lunge for the lead on the first lap but out-braked himself, causing him to slip back down to third.

He did not stay there for long though and managed to overtake Collard going into the final chicane on lap 3.

A few laps later, Shedden was all over the back of Jordan as he looked to find a way through into the lead of the race.

Shedden took the lead on lap 11 when Jordan made a mistake going into the back straight, allowing the Scot to gain momentum as the pari drove up to the chicane.

Shedden comfortably when down the inside of Jordan and opened up a 0.5second lead by the time they had crossed the finishing line.

Unfortunately there would be not time for Jordan to try and fight back as the race was red-flagged with two laps remaining.

A collision between Rob Austin and Nick Foster caused the latter to crash over the barriers. Luckily Foster looked to be unhurt following the accident.
