PRETORIA. Gauteng - The Midas South African Single-Seaters were out on track in the third-to-last round of the 2014 Super Series at Zwartkops Raceway on Saturday (August 30). Three categories of competition saw the Formula Volkswagen and Midas Formula 1600 A and B classes all jostling for position and points.

What started as a 12-point difference between the top two Formula VW competitors ended as a four-point gap with Nicholas Van Weely (87) maintaining that slender advantage over Robert Wolk (1).

CLOSING THE GAP

Wolk started Race 1 at the back of the grid because he changed engines but quickly worked his way way through the field. At one point in that first race it seemed a pace-car period might spoil his chances of making it to the front - at that stage he was second behind Van Weely.

The pace car, deployed after an incident between Werner Scholtz (3) and Jason Campos (19), was recalled with enough of the race left for Wolk to find the gap he needed to claim the chequered flag.

Wolk put in another winning performance in Race 2 to narrow the gap to the championship leader significantly. With Van Weely second in each of the races, Mathew Merton (9) was third in Race 1 and Scholtz took third in Race 2.

In the slower, but no less competitive, F1600s, Bevan Williams (36) was handed a victory in Race 1 when Keegan Campos (02) was penalised for an incident involving Scott Temple (3). Graham Hepburn (04) was second and Andrew Horne (33) third.
 
Temple recovered well in Race 2 to win with Campos right behind him. Williams was third and second overall for the day behind Campos, with Horne third.

In Class B of the F1600s, Ian Schofield (09) was first in each race ahead of Rick Morris (08) with Allen Meyer (15) third. This put Schofield on top for the day with Morris and Meyer filling in the remaining podium places.

The next single-seater outing will be at Killarney on Saturday, September 27, the penultimate round of their 2014 championship.
