1 Mins read

Jason Plato will take part at the 2010 Race of Champions in Dusseldorf, Germany. The recently-crowned British Touring Car Champion will team up with fellow touring car star Andy Priaulx in Team GB for the annual end-of-season spectacular on November 27-28.

Plato, who made his Race of Champions debut at Wembley in 2008, said: “It's been a great year for me on the track and it meant so much to clinch the BTCC title again after a gap of nine years. Now my next step is to head to Düsseldorf to slug it out with this amazing field of legends. Everyone says it's just for fun but in the ROC Nations Cup Andy and I will do our best to battle not just for the pride of Britain but the pride of tin-tops.”

Plato and Priaulx will be up against German Formula 1 superstars Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel as well as French racing legend Alain Prost and compatriot Sebastien Loeb. Also signed up to take part are eight-times Le Mans winner Tom Kristensen, multiple motorcycling champion Mick Doohan and American X-Games hero Travis Pastrana.

Organiser Fredrik Johansson commented: “Jason entertained the crowds at Wembley and after a classic season like his 2010, no doubt he'll be up for more later this month. We look forward to seeing him and Andy taking on the rest of the world in Germany.”
