British Touring Car Racer Pays MG a Flying Visit

British Touring Car Racer Pays MG a Flying Visit
Back at the beginning of June, the MG site at Featherbed Lane was visited by none other than former British Touring Car Champion – Jason Plato. The well known racing driver arrived by helicopter in true celebrity style for a question and answer session hosted by the dealership.

 MG opened its doors for one night only inviting customers to a Q & A session ahead of the British Touring Car Championship. The racing event in which Jason was competing, took place at Oulton Park, Cheshire the same weekend.

Ian Parkes, sales manager for Greenhous MG, said “Having Jason Plato at the shrowroom was incredibly exciting. Not only is he a world renowned racing car driver, but his links to MG made him the ideal guest to host at the dealership.”

Jason Plato currently competes for MG and is a two-time BTCC champion. He has finished in the top three in the championship nine times and is also a presenter on motoring TV series Fifth Gear.

Ian concluded “Around 75 invited guests asked him questions and he stayed for about two hours which was great. We supplied refreshments and overall it was a really nice evening. We also held a prize draw and two people won hospitality tickets with full pit lane access for the Oulton Park racing event that weekend.”
