WRT Audi withdraw Gordon Shedden from rest of Macau weekend

WRT Audi have withdrawn Gordon Shedden’s car from the remainder of the World Touring Car Cup round in Macau following today’s heavy qualifying crash.

Shedden ploughed into the barriers at Moorish Hill in the second of Friday’s WTCR qualifying sessions, and was collected at speed from behind by unsighted title contender Norbert Michelisz.

The accident blocked the track and triggered subsequent congestion, bringing out the red flags.

Audi Sport have confirmed that the damage sustained to Shedden’s car is too severe to be repaired on site, forcing WRT to withdraw it.
