The RML driver, who last took the title back in 2001 enthused “The BTCC is one of the very best championships in the world so to win it is a very magical feeling. Everyone in my team, Chevrolet and RML who prepare the car, are the best in the business and also a great family of people so it’s a very joyous experience winning it for them.”

Plato celebrated as he reached the pitlane by climbing on top of his Chevrolet Cruze to the delight of his watching family and the Silverline Chevrolet squad.

The experienced 42 year old from Oxford, who began his career aided by his father Tim in Junior Karting has now joined the legendary all time Touring Car great Andy Rouse on sixty BTCC race victories.

NEWS // PLATO SECURES 2010 BTCC TITLEPlato reflected further on his second title commenting " “When I first started in the BTCC in 1997 with the Renault team I knew we had a fantastic car and it duly won the championship that year. Mid-way through this season when we unlocked all the secrets of the Chevrolet Cruze I got that same feeling again. It has been a phenomenal car to race but, like I say, that’s very much down to the people at Chevrolet and RML. Personally, I am of course delighted. I've been runner-up three times in the last four years so to finally get that second crown probably means I won't be such a pain in the backside to live with now!"
