Plato crash

Postby NewMrMe » Mon 18 Apr, 2011 8:14 pm

Jason Plato had a big accident in race 2 of the BTCC yesterday at Donnington. Fortunately he was unhurt and amazingly the team managed to fix the car for him to finish 5th in the final race of the day.

I have seen car go off there before but the gravel trap seems more suitable for a cat than a racing car , I still feel Donny is trying to get back up to scratch after the Gillet / BGP cock up.

Meanwhile at Brands Hatch yesterday ...........

I have been thinking about Donnington. I don't remember an unprotected grass bank there in the past and I have watched a MotoGP from the Craners.

Yes I also watched the Great Jean Alesi drive to one of his countless victories from there.It was a few years ago but I'm pretty sure they seem to have changed the layout somehow. >?:PLO

No the layout is the same only the chicane is slightly different coming onto the main straight ...
