Plato hails 'best day in BTCC' after two wins

"We knew this was going to be our bogey circuit so today was about picking up what crumbs we could – I don't think we could have wrung any more out of the car," he said, adding that he expected to be back on form again for Brands Hatch and make it an epic showdown for the championship with Plato, Neal and Jordan.

It had been an even worse day in Northamptonshire for reigning champion Matt Neal who retired from all three races, with his Honda catching fire in the second event and then collecting the barrier in the final race of the day.

"Today has been a shocker but I'm not out of it yet," he said. "There are still a lot of points to be won at Brands and I'll be going there with all guns blazing."
