Shedden disqualified from Race 1
17 April 2011 – Honda Racing driver Gordon Shedden has been stripped of his third place finish during Sunday’s opening race at Donington Park, as stewards found an irregularity with his car. The Scotsman's exclusion promotes James Nash to the final spot on the podium, the same position he will start this afternoon's second race.
The technical infringement was revealed as the overboost on his Civic, meaning he will now have the start the second race of the weekend from the back of the field in 23rd place. Shedden will also be required to start the race with 27kgs of ballast following his Race 1 podium.
