Shedden and Rowbottom retained by Team Dynamics as third seat vacant

Three-time BTCC champion Gordon Shedden and three-time podium-finisher Dan Rowbottom will continue at Team Dynamics for the 2022 season.

The Droitwich-based outfit has retained their 2021 driver line-up, fulfilling two of their three Honda Civic Type R entries ahead of the upcoming season.

Both Shedden and Rowbottom returned to the British Touring Car Championship last year.

The Scotsman claimed two wins and six podium places at the team where he won three titles.

Rowbottom fulfilled his second year in the BTCC with three podiums including his maiden victory at Oulton Park, also winning the Jack Sears Trophy in dominant fashion.

Team Principal Matt Neal said: “These are two of the best drivers on the grid and we wanted to make sure we retained them for the 2022 season.

“Dan has proven himself as a title-winning package and with Gordon being a three-time BTCC Champion already, his credentials speak for themselves.

“The third drive is still up for grabs, and we currently still have a vacant position, so let’s see what happens.

“The engineers have been working tirelessly since the end of the season to build two brand new cars for this new hybrid era, and we are looking at a full-on attack to win all the titles this season.”

Rowbottom signed a multi-year deal when he made his comeback to the championship which entailed his continuation at the team.

In a press release, he stated how he ‘proved all his sceptics wrong’ last year and gaining more wins and podiums this year could provoke taking the outright Drivers’ Championship.

Shedden will pursue another campaign aiming for his fourth title against the reigning and most recent three-time champion Ash Sutton.

He said: “I set my sights on winning the Championship last year, but lady luck just wasn’t on my side – we had a great car, but just couldn’t capitalise on it.

“I’ll be all guns blazing this year to get that elusive and record-equalling fourth title.”

The team will perform on-track testing during March and the season will commence at Donington Park on 23-24 April.
