Which champ will go best at Thruxton?

The second rounds of the HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship at Thruxton this weekend is set to feature no fewer than four past champions following the addition of James Thompson to the field.

Thompson, title winner in 2002 and 2004, will make his debut with Team Dynamics after being called into Steve Neal's team to replace Gordon Shedden.

It will mean the former WTCC racer lines-up against 2001 title winner Jason Plato, 2005-06 champion Matt Neal and defending double champion Fabrizio Giovanardi.

The big question going into the weekend is which champion will perform best at the quickest circuit on the BTCC calendar. While Neal and Giovanardi have plenty of time at the wheel of VX Racing's Vectra, Plato won first time out in RML's Chevrolet Lacetti at Brands Hatch; a feat Thompson will look to repeat in the Honda Civic.

Sorry, but am I missing something here. Matt Jackson is slated to race for RML this weekend not Jason Plato. Unless something has changes and Crash hasn't updated us then this whole storey is pointless and seems to have been written by someone who has know knowledge of the BTCC at all. What about Matt Neal, Giovinardi at al...all former champions. Why do I feel this article was written a while ago and only just published on the site.... mkindy
