Double British Touring Car Champion and series veteran Jason Plato returns in 2021 with Power Maxed Racing and pilots one of the teams Vauxhall Astra's.
Plato, who was victorious in the final race of the 2019 season, has his sights firmly set on that elusive 100th win in the series and he kicks of the 2021 campaign with another impressive milestone, 600th start in the BTCC.
Speaking to BTCC.net, Plato said: “Obviously 2020 was less than ideal for many of us but it gave me time to put a lot of things into perspective,” reflected Plato. “I was lucky enough to be able to spend a lot more time than I normally would at home with the family, but I’m itching to get back in a race car now. It’s the longest I’ve been without racing, and it’s made me appreciate just how much I love it, and I have really missed my team.
“I’m excited about the future with Power Maxed Car Care Racing; winning the final race in 2019 has lit a fire underneath me, so I’m more than ready to get back out and win my 100th race!”
For Power Maxed Racing, it gives them a chance to return to a more focused programme in 2021 after having a year of giving a number of up and coming drivers a chance to shine in 2020. This year, the squad have confirmed to be entering two cars, with the second driver to be announced in due course.
