Meet The Team
Driver #11: Jason Plato
Jason made a splash in BTCC when driving the Super Touring Williams Renault Laguna, back in 1997. He finished Third in his maiden season, and quickly made a name for himself. In 2000 he joined Vauxhall, and the following year secured his first Championship title, in the 888 built Astra Coupe. He continued to dominate the field, and in 2010 took his second title, this time in a Chevrolet Cruze. With 97 BTCC race wins under his belt, including one at the wheel of the Sterling Insurance with Power Maxed Racing Vauxhall Astra, he’s earnt the title of “Most Successful British Racing Driver in History”, .
Driver #9: Rob Collard
Rob began his BTCC career in 2000, in an ex-works Nissan Primera. Just 3-years later he took the hotly-contested Independent Cup title in an ex-888 Vauxhall Astra Coupe, and has been an integral part of the championship ever since. Since 2008 he has been at the helm of the rear-wheel-drive BMWs, run by Motorbase and WSR, and 2019 saw his first foray back in a front-wheel-drive setup. The Hampshire-based driver saw a number of podiums and fastest laps throughout the year, and was frustratingly close to winning a race at Thruxton, with only the weather causing him to finish second.
