The MG KX Momentum British Touring Car Championship squad of Jason Plato and Sam Tordoff are both aiming to bounce back to the top of the rostrum as the series reconvenes at Silverstone this weekend.

Plato, who has been on the podium eight times so far this season and has landed four wins, says he wants to boost his career tally of victories. If he won two of the weekend’s three races, Plato could net his 80th career triumph on Sunday – which is way more than any other driver in the history of the championship.

“That’s what things are all about for me,” said Plato. “The championship is a long shot for us, so my target has to be to push my victory total towards the 100 mark. I love big shiny trophies and big bottles of champagne – that makes me very happy. Read More »

MG KX Rockingham13Changeable weather and tricky track surfaces frustrated the MG KX Momentum team of Jason Plato and Sam Tordoff at the latest rounds of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship at Rockingham in Northamptonshire last weekend.

The pair had shown superb pace in the qualifying session to lock out the front row of the grid after the timed session but rain shortly before the first of the weekend’s three races scuppered the team’s plans. Read More »

The MG KX Momentum drivers Jason Plato and Sam Tordoff are going to go all-out for race wins at the eighth meeting of the 2013 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship at Rockingham this weekend.

Plato thinks that the 1.94-mile partially banked circuit will play to the strengths of his two-litre turbocharged MG6 as he aims to add to his tally of four victories already this season.

“We were very fast at Rockingham last year and that should carry over to 2013 as well,” he says. “It is an interesting track with lots of technical bits, but everybody loves the banked Turn One, which is taken flat out. It is a ballsy corner and one which requires total commitment – it’s right up my alley.” Read More »

MG KX Momentum drivers Jason Plato and Sam Tordoff have both pledged to get their winning campaigns back on track at Rockingham in three weeks after a tough time in the latest rounds of the British Touring Car Championship at Knockhill in Scotland last weekend.

Both drivers struggled to get to grips with the handling of the two-litre turbocharged MG6 over the demands of the tight 1.2-mile circuit in Fife and were unable to challenge for wins over the course of the three races.

Plato’s best result was a fourth position in the first of the three races, while Tordoff brought his car home in the top ten twice before an alternator failure ruled him out of the third encounter. Read More »

The MG KX Momentum team drivers Jason Plato and Sam Tordoff say that this weekend’s rounds of the 2013 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship at Knockhill in Scotland are the perfect place to kick-start their push for wins.

Both Plato and Tordoff are fighting in the top six of the championship and the small track in Fife will give them a good platform to hunt for more glory on the three rounds that take place on Sunday.

Plato has already won four times this season while Tordoff took his breakthrough first victory last time out at Snetterton in Norfolk. Plato thinks that the 1.2-mile layout on the Scottish hillside is one that will play to his strengths. Read More »

MG KX Momentum drivers Jason Plato and Sam Tordoff say they are ready to go on the attack to land this season’s 2013 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship as the series reconvenes at Snetterton in Norfolk this weekend.

The pair had a successful test at the circuit recently and Plato says the secrets uncovered during the extra running mean that the team is able to go on the front foot for the remaining 15 rounds in 2013.

“We’ve made progress in all areas with the car – in terms of handling, how we use the tyres and getting the most from the softer Dunlop rubber that we have to use this year. I am full of confidence,” said the two-time champion. Read More »
