Surprise news ahead of the 2018 season as thrice-champion Gordon Shedden announces he won’t race in the series this year:
So where will he end up and who will Dynamics replace him with?

@atticus-2 – That was exactly how it was, kept shouting to dad Shedden’s position as they went past, we watching from the start/finish straight, was incredible the noise as he crossed the line!
