Eighteen years after winning his first BTCC title with Vauxhall, Jason Plato will be back behind the wheel of an Astra this season.

Plato will be joining the squad for his 21st year in the championship. The Oxford based star has won more races than any other driver in the history of the BTCC with 97 wins and has been in contention to win the title on finals day as many as 9 times out of the last 15.

Vauxhall returns to BTCC in 2017

Vauxhall, the most successful manufacturer in BTCC history, is to return to the championship after a seven year absence.

Power Maxed Racing will run two Vauxhall Astras in 2017.

The car maker has teamed up with Automotive Brands, the company behind Power Maxed Racing, with the race programme aligned to a larger B2B deal between the two companies.
