Jason Plato is a talented drive with one MAJOR fault. He always tries to bend the laws as far as they can go to WIN WIN WIN. His actions against Gordon Shedden did not warrant a two second penalty. They warranted a disqualification, especially after he had already had is licence endorsed earlier in the meeting for breaching the standards required of a driver. This result only goes to show that the BTCC are reluctant to impose the letter of the law against what they see as a competitor who will always draw in the money for the BTCC. A real shame that they have shown no bottle to uphold safe driving protocols in my opinion.

So the result stands, and Plato's last corner pass was not illegal???? For someone who's "brakes had locked up", he sure had no problem swerving from the right to the left of the track to follow Shedden, so he could punt him off!! Can anyone make a clean pass in this series? Joke!
