Gordon Shedden has vowed to keep “plugging away” in his efforts to replicate his British Touring Car Championship achievements in the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup presented by OSCARO.

The Scot is a three-time winner of the British title and is in his first season of international racing in an Audi Sport Leopard Lukoil Team RS 3 LMS.

However, his results so far have yet to quite match his usual high standards, making him more determined than ever to shine at WTCR Race of Netherlands this week, a venue where he tested back in March.

“The felt the best it’s done this year,” Shedden said following the Nürburging Nordschleife triple-header last week. “There’s still a lot of work to do however, and we’ve got to keep our heads down and keep plugging away at it.

“After [Zandvoort] we’ll have a little bit of time to take stock of the situation. These first few rounds are quite close together, and both I and the team are new to the world championship, so it’ll be nice to work on what we’ve got and try and make a big step forwards for Vila Real in June and onwards.”
