2011 Honda BTCC Drivers Announced
"We are thrilled to announce Matt and Gordon as our drivers once again for next year. They have shown they are a winning combination on the track and they are excellent ambassadors for the Honda brand off the track too," stated David Hodgetts, Managing Director, Honda (UK).
Neal, 43, notched up 5 wins over the season while his team-mate Flash, 31, also had 5 wins. Shedden was recently awarded the prestigious BRDC Silver Star over both team-mate Neal and the 2010 BTCC Champion Jason Plato, for scoring more points
"I'm looking forward to a thrilling 2011. The Civic is a real driver’s car which gives you amazing performance and road holding both on and off the track. I can't wait to get the season started again," Matt Neal said in a release.
"It was great to be back home in the Honda Civic in 2010 which delivered fantastic results. The aim is to come back even stronger and go for a clean sweep of titles in 2011. Bring it on!" added Gordon Shedden.
The British division of Honda and Team Dynamics are already working closely together on plans and car development for the 2011 season. “The team walked away with both the Team and Manufacturers’ Trophies and the target is for a clean sweep next season, so no one is resting on their laurels,” the company says.
