The 2016 BTCC title went down to the wire between 8 drivers

The British Touring Car Championship uses success ballast and reverse grids to ensure close racing, and the end result is that EIGHT DRIVERS entered the final round of the season with a shot at winning the championship. You could suggest the title fight would’ve been more intense if it was focussed on just 2 or 3 drivers but at least it went down to the final laps. Gordon Shedden emerged victorious as two podiums and a 5th place sealed the championship from Sam Tordoff by two points.

BTCC: Gordon Shedden won the championship in spectacular fashion

BTCC

Sunday’s British Touring Car Championship finale was a big highlight on a very busy weekend of racing. Gordon Shedden, pictured here a few years back, had to finish the final race in 6th place to become 2015 champion but was left starting down in 19th. With nothing to lose, Shedden went on a spectacular charge through the field that ensured this year’s title fight lasted until the final few laps. He passed 15 other drivers (with some help) and eventually finished 4th to get his hands on the championship trophy. Not a bad effort!‪
