Plato to appear at Inside Motorsport seminar

Racing Silverline driver Jason Plato to speak at January's Inside Motorsport seminar
Jason Plato has agreed to divulge some of the secrets that have made him one of the most successful drivers in the history of the HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship when he speaks at the Inside Motorsport Race Car Engineering Seminar in January.

The Racing Silverline driver, who finished second in the BTCC standings this season, will talk through a 90 minute presentation during the seminar at the Silverstone Innovation Centre which will talk about his career in the BTCC and his experiences of working with the media.

Other speakers due to appear at the seminar, the brainchild of race engineers Dan Walmsley and Jay Davenport, include F1 designers Gary Anderson and James Robinson.

“The relationship between a driver and his race engineer is a very special one, because how effectively they work together determines how competitive the race car is,” Plato said. “There is very little track time over a race weekend, so you have to plan your technical strategy very carefully, and often you are trying to improve your performance in just one or two corners or gain a tenth of a second over the entire lap, so driver and engineer need to be completed focused and on top of their game.

“This year is a good example of how, with knowledge and hard work, you can develop the car to beat in the BTCC with no pre-season testing – like we did with the Racing Silverline Chevrolet Lacetti at RML. I'm very much looking forward to divulging the secrets of my success, explaining what makes a good engineer great and helping new talented engineers progress their careers.”
