Funny how Jason is never sure about what he should say then always knows EXACTLY what to say- a past master at manipulating the media...
Always the victim he seems to think- he's handed out more than his fair share of moves like when Boardman did nothing but 'rub' him.
I don't remember him complaining about the turbos when he was winning races and championships during their development- go and ask Andy Jordan what he thinks Jason...

Did'nt see the race - not on french TV for some obtuse reason - but sounds as if Mr Plato tried to do a Neal (per Snetterton) and was surprised to find the chap by his side was a Plato lookalike! A case of be done by as one would do?

Plato just got a taste of his own medicine but Boardman's post race interview saying Plato was slowing down deliberately wasn't the smartest.

Tom's driving in race 3 was awful. He should have the win taken off him

A, For punting Plato off.
B, For coursing the crash at the restart
C, For undue care for his fellow competitors

Looks like Jason (go cry to Alan Gow) Plato has hijacked the comments section of this thread.
All I can say is if you dish it out you should also expect it back.
Keep on whinging Jason

We were at the circuit and saw all the races. From where we were stood we saw clearly what happened. Boardman rammed Plato fair and square up the rear bumper, no attempt to brake or overtake, he waited until Plato's car was turning in to the right hander down Duffus (OK, I know it's called something else but...) At this point the Chevy was off balance, Boardman knew exactly what he was doing and what the consequences would be. BTCC isn't stock car racing, it's supposed to be non-contact racing by experienced professionals (the likes of Jason) not young thugs. We didn't see the re-start so can't comment on that. All in all a fantastic day out. PS: the fact he's a Northener has nothing to do with it, in fact that's personal abuse and an attack!

Poetic justice for Plato. How many times has he done something like this to others? He even rammed his teammate in order to make a pass (Muller, Silverstone 2001). I wonder if Boardman will just get a fine and points on his license, like Plato did after spinning Neal at Snetterton this year.

As other drivers said Plato was "clean" thoughout this weekend and to be honest he plays it pretty clean with the majority. Only those who Play "rough" get it handed back. Collard and Neal are those who Plato tends to "rub" which given the way they drive is understandable. I personally was not happy with that Move on Plato. Boardman knew exactly what he was doing and it isn't the first time he has done it although it's usually somewhere in the pack. As for the restart, it's Boardman's call. The other drivers have to fall in with the way he wants to play it so I don't see a problem.
