Plater said: “Enzo has saved my season. It’s good to be working again. Enzo and myself have worked really hard to get the funding to run Dienza Performance for this season, but we’ve come good. We couldn’t have done it without my personal sponsors; Optoma Broker Solutions and KDP Plant, and the continued support of Dunlop, CSI and Putoline Oils who have all stood by us.”
He hopes to test at Knockhill before the official test at Snetterton on March 18-19 2006.
