Oh dear god no - this will be a disaster until he gives the seat up to someone who can actually drive. I just don't get it, Andy's actually an extremely clever guy - he invented a very special type of massively bright lightbulb that draws very little current. It's just sad he can't see he's wasting so much time and money at this level - nothing wrong in spending your money as you see fit but he really should step back and race something lower profile just for a bit of fun. If it was mid 90s BTCC he wouldn't even get to pedal the driver parade truck..

Trebor that's bull. The biggest gap he had when leading the reverse grid race at croft was 1.2 seconds! Don't try and defend the talentless rich boy, he never deserved the drive in the first place.

I issued him a challenge via twitter a while back, whereby he and I drove the same car at the same circuit and if he went faster than I did I'd wear nothing but a sandwich board stating he's the best driver on the grid at the Snetterton BTCC round this year raising money for a charity of his choosing. I stand by it.

Thats a road car and when Neate led at Croft last year he handled it very well and at one point was even pulling a descent gap, it was only when Plato got into second position that things went belly up and he got shoved out the way and down the order

This is what rich guys of limited talent should be doing - entering a team for themselves which would not be running otherwise, not taking up seats in top teams, as this guy's somehow managed to do for three successive seasons.

I assume that's not the final paint job though....

888 didn't give him a car as good as Platos. 888 focus went all on Plato and as bad a driver times Neate was he just didn't have the car but that a side the more cars the better dont care whos in the drivers seat.

I wish Neate all the best in 2013...hes guna need it

Ford Focus as well.

Neate had to create his own team because he is terrible.

Plato had great results in the MG while Neate was near the back of the grid causing chaos.
