Sorry guys, I just can't stand the guy. He might be ok on Driven in a a controlled enviornment but get him in a race car and he sees RED MIST. It's the wrong mist though. Thinks you have to hit everything in sight.
I'm not the only one that thinks this. TOCA have come close to banning the guy on a number of occassions. If my memory serves me right, he was banned early in his career.
Jim,why dont you just bite the bullit and admit plato is a ACE driver.as jerry has pointed out earlier you are a little selective about the driving atributes of some drivers(hunt).
IIRC, you were less than complimentary about Mr Hughes at donnington,saying he had to go.then the next race at brands he gets pole
i'll bet you hughesy will get more points than reidy this year too!
Look boyz, how can you place Jason (the name in itself is a joke) in the same league as Win Percy, Chris Craft, Jeff Allam or Andy Rouse. Remember at Thruxton in the late '80's when Soper and Rouse were neck and neck. Neither would give an inch. Sierra Cosworths at full chat, Rouse the privateer and Soper in an Eggenberger Cossie. I would hate to think what antics "our Jase" would have used to win.
He's not safe.
As for my hero James. Yep, he had the name "Hunt the Shunt". One difference is, is that he had almighty prangs on his own and not punting off every Tom, Dick or Harry that got in his way unlike Playdo!
Exracted this from Lincolnshire Echo dated 14th March 2002 by Iain Robertson scribe for Motorsport who did a piece for the new season.
Although last year's Touring Car Champion, Midlander Jason Plato, is missing from the line-up, having created such a "bad taste" in the mouths of the organising body for his displays of "unsporting behaviour" and "childish shenenanigans" towards the end of play in 2001, there are still plenty of reasons to head for the circuits this season.
AHHH yes , the Linconshire Echo.LOL
If you are gonna use some press cliping to back your arguments up then atleast use something a little more respected than the local FREE paper
Jason Plato was the topic of conversation today at brands,i cant name no names but someone VERY high up in MG racing thinks he is a VERY good driver.
cream floats and so will plato in the new race series.
