Aberdeen based subsea installation contractor, Bibby Offshore has announced  a £10,000 sponsorship deal with Scottish auto racing driver, Gordon "Flash" Shedden.

Edinburgh-born, Gordon became the third Scot to win the British Touring Car Championship last year and is part of the Honda Yuasa Racing team. He currently holds the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Drivers’ championship title.
Fresh from winning the last round in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship at Snetterton and Honda Yuasa’s next outing will take Gordon to Scotland for the Knockhill rounds on August 24 and 25.

Gordon Shedden said, “I’m delighted to secure the support of Bibby Offshore, a successful business based in Scotland. They couldn’t be a more fitting partner for me, as it is a company which continually aims to be the best it can possibly be and loves the business it’s in. Motorsport is my life, I love it and I’m always pushing the boundaries to go further.  It has been a thrilling season so far and I hope Bibby Offshore can share in my success.

“I’m very lucky to have such a fantastic team around me, I only get the chance to race in Scotland once a year, so it’s always very exciting and I look forward to the Knockhill rounds this weekend.”

Howard Woodcock, chief executive of Bibby Offshore said: “Gordon has had an extremely exciting and successful career so far and Bibby Offshore is proud to be associated with him, as a sponsor this year. We will certainly be following his performances closely and wish him and the Honda Yuasa team every success.”

Bibby Offshore’s branding will be displayed on Gordon’s racing suit and helmet for the entire season.
