Team Dynamics has recruited triple BTCC champion Gordon ‘Flash’ Shedden for pre-season testing, replacing fellow three-time Champion Matt Neal, as he continues his recovery from a recent mountain bike injury.
Shedden will re-join the team in a testing capacity and help to fulfil the team’s test plan leading up to the start of the 2020 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship.
“My recovery is going well and everything is starting to mend,” said Neal. “I’m doing everything possible to get in the car for the first round at Donington at the end of March.
“However, we have undertaken a lot of changes to the car over the winter period, which we need to try on-track and to do this with a back-to-back comparative test programme. There was no better choice than my old teammate Flash, he knows the team, he knows our work ethic and he is the natural choice to jump into my seat.”
“Team Dynamics has always been my race family and I’m happy to be able to help,” said Shedden. “We have obviously kept in constant contact since I went to WTCR and I have been down and seen the boys on a number of occasions over that two-year period. Obviously my friendship with Matt means I really feel for him, and hope that he can make a speedy recovery. But at the business end, we need to get the job done and get the cars race-ready for the start of the season.
“I haven’t driven the Honda Civic Type R FK8 yet so I’m really looking forward to getting behind the wheel and assisting with its development. Both Matt and Dan [Cammish] have been telling me how awesome it is to drive, so it will be interesting to compare it to the old FK2 that I won back-to-back drivers’ titles in 2015/2016!”
