Steve Plater is absent from this weekend's line up at Brands Hatch as he's racing at Albacete in the second round of the World Endurance Championship.

Steve returned to the BSB paddock last week end at Oulton Park after racing at Le Mans in which his team had a successful start and who were at one stage a lap ahead, but unfortunately had to retire due a clutch failure.  At the Cheshire circuit Steve had a retirement in race one, but claimed 12th in race two after qualifying 22nd.

Talking about his weekend at Oulton, he said: "We had problems all week end which was a little frustrating.  In qualifying the chain broke and the best tyre was on that bike." 
Steve made the decision to pull in after four laps due to an incorrect tyre choice and the risks were too high for him to continue.  However the second race was more successful as he battled through the grid to run in 12th position when the race was red flagged after two thirds of the race distance.


This weekend Steve's ongoing talent was in demand, this weekend in addition to the round at Brands Hatch, due to an injured rider he was also required at an endurance event at Monza, but he has committed to the six hour battle of Albacete. He said: "I have never raced at Monza that would have been mega and it is nice to be wanted."
His busy schedule never stops, following on from Spain he will also ride in the North West 200 in Ireland that kicks off this week and the high spirited character of Plater will be aiming to continue his winning success at both events.
