jason Plato wins his 500th BTCC race in style and over the three races, the team took a large haul of points and podium placings.
“I’m confident about the remaining three events and I'm committed to giving my best. We may have lost the points in Race Three but nothing changes – I’m here to challenge for the title."
James Cole commented: “Before we get onto my weekend I first want to once again congratulate Jason Plato and Colin Turkington on another mega weekend.
"My own weekend was filled with positives and frustrations. The team prepared a perfect car both days. Myself and my engineer, Richard Owen, are now getting into the nitty gritty of the Subaru's performance to best suit my driving style.
“Our times in Race One showed real top ten pace, which is where I feel I now should be. Sadly driving standards outside the top ten are in my opinion the worst I've ever seen. A distinct lack of respect between a few of the drivers is really ruining it for most.
“It only takes a few to spoil the party. Hopefully we will start to see improvements in the next round as having your own race ruined by the actions of others is tiresome.
“My speed is increasing, my knowledge of the car is improving and I'm certain all of this will be reflected in the results if we can all race properly.”
