Gordon Shedden, Scottish 3-time British Touring Car Champion, celebrated his first ever victory within the FIA WTCR World Cup at the Wuhan International Circuit in China.
Gordon Shedden, Audi Sport Leopard Lukoil Team, Audi RS 3 LMS (Race 3 – Winner): “Wins in the WTCR don’t come easy and today has been exactly that: trials and tribulations, ups and downs from a fantastic qualifying this morning to qualify on pole position and then get involved with somebody who hit me in Race 2 and broke the steering rack. The guys at WRT did an amazing job to replace the steering rack. I didn’t even think I’d make the grid to be able to start from pole position. Race 3 was very eventful, there was lots going on. Denis [Dupont] was exciting… but we made it to the end and it’s fantastic to get my first win and also to have two more Audis on the podium. It has been a fantastic day for the RS 3 Audis.”
The Audi Sport Leopard Lukoil Team looked strong all weekend with a win by Team mate Jean-Karl Vernay the day before Shedden in Race 1.
