Blistering heat conditions ,massive crowd and a fantastic 80s Grand prix Circuit for the MSA Dunlop British Touring Cars to race on - what could be better?

I have been lucky enough to cover 2011 season for Newsquest and I have seen some fantastic driving this year.

Plato points the car and it turns and dances when it wants to - brilliant control.

Jason won two out of the three races at Brands Hatch with Matt Neal winning the last race.

Great track conditions, just shows how well balanced the RML Chevrolet is with Plato at the helm.
