Cape Town - Graeme Nathan delivered another consistent performance when the Bridgestone Production Car championship made its second visit of 2013 to the Western Cape.

Driving a VW Golf 6 GTI, the Midrander made his intentions clear in qualifying by securing pole. "That was a good lap," he said, "but I think I may also have been lucky with the wind."


Race 1 turned out to be one of those cat-'n-mouse games as Mini drivers Lee Thompson and Gavin Cronje tried to dictate the race. Nathan’s objective was to finish ahead of title rival Cronje so he wasn’t drawn into chasing Thompson. At the end he was second behind Thompson as Cronje was fourth behind the Chev of Michael van Rooyen.

Nathan's young protege Jacques Joubert was destined to start the sister Golf from eighth after a number of small problems. Joubert's woes continued and he nursed his car home to 11th after slowing after half-distance.

Race 2 was another tactical game as Nathan followed Thompson across the line to split the Minis. Joubert’s luck held and he was encouraged by fourth place. The double point scoring feature race saw Nathan at his best and he bagged the win ahead of Cronje and Thompson with Joubert again claiming fourth place.

Nathan was ecstatic and goes into the final round with a comfortable points lead but, due to technical issues regarding turbo boost, the results remain provisional until an MSA hearing on Wednesday October 9.
