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 96 BTCC race wins under his belt, he’s earnt the title of “Most Successful British Racing Driver in History”, and is looking to take his 100th race win this year in the Sterling Insurance with Power Maxed Racing Astra.

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 sees his first foray back in a front-wheel-drive setup.
