    Default Jason Plato burned in 5th Gear stunt....

    I see that Jason Plato has been badly burned filming for 5th Gear

    Apparently he was driving a F1 car made for the road when the engine blew covering him in oil which caught alight and since he was doing 160 it took some time before he could get out - also was only wearing normal clothes

    Has burns to face and arms but because his hands were on the wheel his palms are ok so he is still going to drive in the Btcc on sunday

    Just wondering if they will show it like the Hamster crash?

    Jeeze... hope he is OK...

    Cant be that bad if he's in the finals on Sunday... the docs wouldnt let him race otherwise ??!!

    These car programs are getting their fair share of casualties recently. !!

    This was the car that blew up...



    Jason Plato said: “We were testing the Caparo T1 for Fifth Gear, and we took it to Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground, a private testing facility, which is common practice. There was a slight loss of power, I looked in the mirror and saw some smoke, there was a slight smell of oil and then suddenly there was this intense heat. The car spontaneously erupted into a ball of flame and I was sat in the middle of a fireball. I hit the brakes, brought the car to a stop as quickly as I could and jumped out.

    “We found the nearest hospital on our sat nav and Phil Bennett [former BTCC racing driver who was at the test] took me to the local A&E. I would very much like to thank Phil, all the staff at Market Harborough and District Hospital, Kettering General Hospital and Stoke Mandeville Hospital for all the excellent care and treatment they so quickly administered.

    “The back of my neck is burnt and so are my face and hands. I obviously couldn’t take my hands off the steering wheel whilst braking and my right hand is more badly burnt than my left. I’ll have to dig deep, but I’m still looking forward to the BTCC finale this weekend. It’s been a hard-fought season and I’ve led the Drivers’ Championship almost unbroken since winning the opening round, so this isn’t going to stop me winning the title on Sunday.”

    Perhaps it will help Giovanardi claim the BTCC title in his 888 Vectra this weekend!

    Seriously though, I hope Plato makes a swift and full recovery.

    I also hope Caparo gets the problem sorted before delivering any production cars!

    One of the Options is a Fire Suppression System (Road or Race)
