Plato: Rivals should be worried of me!

Jason Plato has warned his rivals that they are right to be concerned about his challenge as the HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship season resumes this weekend at Snetterton.

Plato heads to the Norfolk circuit lying fourth in the championship standings, but the three drivers ahead of him – Colin Turkington, Matt Neal and Fabrizio Giovanardi – have all tipped the Racing Silverline ace as the man to watch as the second half of the season gets underway.

While he has only take one victory so far this season at the wheel of his RML-run Chevrolet Lacetti, a number of circuits still to come this season are likely to suit the car and Plato said he was aiming high as he returns to a venue where he has won more times than anyone else.

“They are intelligent people and rightly know that, on paper, we are going to be fast this weekend,” he told the official series website BTCC.net. “The Chevrolet is great aerodynamically, it's clearly got a strong engine and is pretty good in quick corners. It also has good traction out of slow corners – all of which make up the lap at Snetterton.

“If you highlighted two circuits where the Chevrolet should be at its most potent, then they are Snetterton and Silverstone, which follows later in the month. Bear in mind we had pole position at Oulton Park and probably should have been on pole at Croft – two circuits which are not our strongest.

“I think that tells you what I'm expecting this weekend.”
