A recent poll asked supporters to vote for the driver they believe will win Britain's premier motor racing series, and supporters logged on in their droves to vote for the Silverline Chevrolet star.
Neal's Honda team mate Gordon Shedden is an outsider in the eyes of supporters, with only six per cent believing the Scot will prevail despite lying just 21 points behind Plato.
Meanwhile, the HiQ Teams' Championship will also be decided at Brands Hatch, with Honda Racing stealing a march on Team Aon, leading by 41 points.
With so much still to play for in one day of racing in Kent, the finale of the British Touring Car Championship promises to be one of the best sporting spectacles of the year.
HiQ's marketing manager Geraldine McGovern said: "If Sunday is anything like the drama we witnessed last year, then we are in for a treat.
"There is nothing like the thrills and spills of the BTCC, let alone when there is so much at stake.
"In three years of involvement with the BTCC, we have never looked forward to a race weekend so much, so we're already counting down the clock."
In addition, HiQ will be going all out to raise as much money as possible for Breast Cancer Care on Sunday, by giving away official pink caps and replica cars in return for a donation for the cause.
Meanwhile, face painting and a series of other fun activities will be made available for fans as they look forward to one of the most exciting finishes to a BTCC season ever.
