Plato shows BTCC who's boss

Jason Plato very nearly didn't have a drive in the BTCC this year after SEAT cancelled their factory program. Luckily at the last minute he ended up in a Chevrolet Lacetti (probably ex-WTCC but I'm not sure).

Good thing too, because he put on one hell of a show in race 3 of this weekend's season opener. I've always rated Plato as one of the best tin-top drivers in the business and the clip below proves it. I also think his no-nonsense communication style and TV experience on Fifth Gear make for one of the most compelling personalities in motorsport too.

Worth mentioning Adam later got a penalty for that and Plato was given the win.

Stunning catch by Plato - he'd have had a substantial off otherwise!
