In this 2-part special, Jonny brings together BTCC clashing legends Jason Plato and Matt Neal to openly chat about their three decades of paint swapping in the British Touring Car Championship, sat on the crap brown chairs inside the stunning Williams Racing Heritage Centre.

The pair (who have collectively spent over 50 years racing in BTCC) discuss mental health and the will it takes to win, the Super Touring weapons they have driven, BTCC tribal fans, Bathurst, their favourite engines and some of their biggest life mistakes. Part 2 focuses more on their notorious rivalry, on and off track. Even if you don’t follow the British Touring Car Championship closely, there is no denying the high octane closeness and unpredictability of this series. Jason Plato is a two time BTCC champion and has raced in British Touring Cars for over 20 years. Since his debut in 1997 driving a Williams Laguna next to Alain Menu, he has driven over 500 BTCC races. He drove in the famous Super Touring era and has raced Chevrolets (championship winner 2010), Vauxhalls, Renaults, Seats, MGs and VWs. Matt Neal is a three time BTCC champion and is celebrating his 30th year in British Touring Cars. Since his debut in 1991 driving an E30 M3 BMW Matt has driven over 700 BTCC races. He drove in the famous Super Touring era and was the first independent team to win a race (1999 behind the wheel of a Nissan Primera) and be gifted £250,000 for the accolade.
