BTCC 2012 Drivers’ Title:
Scotsman Gordon Shedden came into the final weekend of the BTCC at the top of the championship table, and he remained there until the end. Jason Plato had arrived second, and finished up third with a trio of poor results. Matt Neal had arrived third but, with two podium finishes, he was able to surpass Jason Plato, creating a Honda Racing 1-2 in the Drivers’ Championship.
