Jason Plato, the British Touring Car 2010 champion, battled through the snow and visited the Silverline headquarters in Yeovil on Thursday 2nd December to celebrate his success with the Chevrolet team’s primary sponsor. His visit included a tour of Silverline’s impressive warehouse and office facilities, where he was met and congratulated by staff before signing autographs and having photos taken.
Following interviews with Jason he took the opportunity to recount his racing season and present prizes to the winners of the Racing Silverline online competition. In the spirit of motor racing competition, a Pit Stop Challenge was held where Silverline’s directors competed against the clock to change a tyre on the Chevrolet Cruze which Jason drove to victory in 2010’s BTCC.
Jason Plato stated that “Despite the cold & the weather it’s been a really great day…..It’s a nice way to say thanks to Silverline for giving us support this year.”
Jason had an extra reason to celebrate in 2010 as he also equaled Andy Rouse’s all-time BTCC record for the number of wins by finishing first for the 60th time in his glittering motor racing career on the final race day.
