Gordon Shedden added: “Growing up in Dunfermline and living only five miles from Knockhill, Scotland’s National Motorsport Centre, was a huge boost to my racing career. From a small boy watching motor racing at Knockhill with my Dad, to living every boy’s dream, racing has always been my passion. Being a Fife Ambassador is a great honour to help make people aware just how much the Kingdom has to offer. ”
