Triple Eight Race Engineering’s Jason Plato is confident going into the second half of 2012 that the team will be stronger than before, with race victories the goal with the MG6 GT at Snetterton.
Triple Eight have been testing over the summer break in order to improve the handling and performance of the youngest car in the Championship, the Next Generation Touring Car-specification MG6, with Plato confident ahead of this weekend’s race.
“Our summer break has been long, the batteries are well and truly re-charged, the team are well prepared,” said Plato. “I feel strong and very motivated. Our season starts at Snetterton. I am confident that our recent developments with the MG6 GT will not only improve our speed, but also our race performance. I feel some race wins coming this weekend.”
Plato’s team-mate Andy Neate, who had his strongest weekend of the year so far last time out at Croft, is also looking forward to the second half of the season.
“The Croft race weekend seems a long while ago now,” said Neate. “My memory of it is very positive though with a triple points finish and having the pace to lead Race Three from the front for so long. I’m taking those positives into the second half of the season and am determined to get the results that the car, and I, are capable of.”
