Jason Plato says that he is confident that the Silverline Chevrolet team will be strong through the remainder of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship season after moving to the top of the standings at Snetterton.

The former champion went into the weekend sitting second in the championship standings but picked up two wins in the three races to jump ahead of Matt Neal.

Plato will now take a 20 point lead to Silverstone next weekend after Neal lost points with a race one retirement in Norfolk and said he was confident of running at the front through the rest of the year.
