BDC finished off its season opener this weekend with a huge field of cars competing in three classes to wrap things up at Lydden Hill. The man on top of the podium this weekend is no other than 14 year old Jack Shanahan in his Nexen sponsored S14. The rain barely held off but left a dry track for a full weekend of fun in England. Check below to see where drivers finished in all three divisions.
