Jason Plato is nothing more than a bully and a cry baby because if anything happens to him he lets every one know about it but if he does the same thing its a racing inncident

I cant believe some of the responses. I am with Shedden he should have be disqualified for blatently pushing another car out of the way. There are taps to get past people and rubbing but he pushed Shedden down the straight and into the gravel, cheating I think but the stewards bottled it.

As for Race 2 he was trying to punt Collard off and it back fired on him. But as usual he blamed someone else.

There is hadly a race when he doesn't tap or punt someone off. The stewards need to get some spine.

After reading the responses again to yet another Plato punt at another driver and having watched racing for a number of years the thing that seems amazing is that at every BTCC meeting there always seems to be several incidents involving Plato which are contraversal. He is a good driver but had this happenned to anyone else they would have been penalised far heavier then Plato ever appears to be. He is constantly denying others finishes by his tactics and teh BTCC should grow a pair and deal with him. You almost think the BTCC is fixing it for him, a penalty and still second place!

..........up so and so, but that shouldn't affect anyones judgement of any incident.

No doubt Plato has also been at fault in the past so my comments ONLY refer to the two incidents on Sunday.

Are you people blind, either that or you have no practical experience whatsoever of actually racing.

Shedden was blocking Plato the whole way down that final straight as proven by the fact that Jacksons car pulled a massive gap that one time whereas previously they were neck and neck the whole way down it. So I reckon a little nerf at the end of it was the very least Shedden deserved. Defensive driving is one thing (and acceptable), blatant blocking is another thing altogether and Plato dealt with it himself. The result with reference to Plato/Shedden should have stood as they crossed the line.

With reference to the earlier incident with Collard, no problem whatsoever. The one rule in racing set in stone is that if someone is behind you on the outside exiting a corner, you are totally entitled to show them the edge of the track. That's where Collard was, but he knew what was coming and cut in early turning Plato around and ultimately into the barrier.

FWIW, I think Plato is a jumped

Can anyone explain to me how the superlicence points works - I understand Plato was given 3 points on the licence for an earlier offence. Thanks.

Another weekend where Plato is at the centre of it all. Don't think he is capable of racing fairly, BTCC has always been door to door but he manages to push it too far.
