The Chevy Cruze made its BTCC debut at Thruxton at the weekend - a solid if unremarkable performance. It's a shame Jason Plato's so fundamentally unlikeable, as he'd probably be a strong bet in the Cruze this season. The car itself certainly has a proven history on the world stage, with a string of successful entries under its belt.
Check out this time-lapse video to see how a mundane and underwhelming road car can become a genuine contender on the circuit. And keep an eye on the Cruze in the BTCC this year!
