last to 1st in 13laps and then wins by 3.3 seconds? what a joke this boost and equal thing is and then Plato has the nerve to comment on MG having the best chassis. keep your childish banter to yourself

This is getting silly. I have followed BTCC for more than 15 years and I have never seen such a staged result. Honda's weren't even able to race today due to another boost reduction. Yes, Matt Neal had problems but Gordons car just wasn't competative. Cringeworthy to watch a series I love going down the tubes due to silly rules. Jason Plato's comments on a certain website are just downright arrogant. Attacks Honda's and Steve Neal. Whatever happened to the phrase "Win with humility, lose with grace" Mr Plato seems to be unable to do either. Yes I am a Shedden fan but most of all I am a (very disillusioned) BTCC fan.

Sheddon did well to salvage some points. It'll be a crime if Plato wins it over Sheddon who has driven better and cleaner. Alan Gow is artificially fixing the races to stage a last event championship decider. Sucks. Some of the speed differences were laughable, cars cruising by on the straights...that's not racing.

I have watched BTCC since 1999 and always liked Plato but he doesn't deserve this championship. These results have been staged to suit his MG.

If Gordon Shedden & Honda don't win the championship this year then the s**t is going to hit the fan. He is the most deserving of the championship this year he has outperformed Neal & most of the field then the organisers more than once this year have screwed him over.

BTCC is a shambles, well done for taking the championship from the most deserving guy.

I've watched btcc since the early 90s and never liked plato. He is a good drive but wont shut his mouth.

How does the boost rule work I asked before and got an argument does the fact Honda have three race winners mean they are penalised more than mg with one. Also how do they penalise super 2000 cars
