Platé made his Grand Prix debut in the 1925 Italian Grand Prix, driving a voiturette class Chiribiri 12/16, but retired on lap 13 due to mechanical failure. Platé also entered in some non-official/non-championship races in the 1920s and 1930s.
Platé also made an unsuccessful Formula One entry in 1950 Italian Grand Prix, to drive a Talbot 700, but he didn't appear in the race weekend. He could have become the second oldest driver to enter a Grand Prix if he did (at the age of 56; the record is currently held by Louis Chiron, who entered in 1958 Monaco Grand Prix at age 58 years and 288 days.)
