As well as the BTCC, Shedden has also competed in the FIA GT Championship, British GT Championship and World Touring Car Cup with Audi.
As part of the partnership, Shedden will be the face of GS battery by promoting and championing the brand for its renowned quality and reliability.

“Gordon will become the face for the GS brand in the UK – he’s instantly recognisable for his incredible BTCC success and the perfect ambassador for the brand.”
