Having already clinched this year’s South African Superbike title, the Autopage Cellular Yamaha team will wish to finish their Championship onslaught with flair at AA Kyalami this Saturday (November 22). -

- Going to the final round of this year’s Vodacom Power Tour, Autopage Cellular Yamaha team captain Russell Wood enjoys an unassailable points lead in the 2003 SA Superbike Championship. That follows 11 victories from 18 race starts this year, enabling Wood to successfully defend his 2002 South African title. -

- None of the above will result in a slacking of pace at Kyalami this weekend. Wood has a tradition to defend. For the past five seasons, he has managed to win every season’s first and last races overall - a habit he would certainly like to continue this coming Saturday. -

- “I shall be able to relax, forget about Championship strategies and simply race to win,” the 14-times national titleholder said this week. -

- “My team mate Greg Dreyer is also back on the winning pace, and we shall be looking at finishing first and second, to round out an excellent season,” Wood added. -

- In the process, Wood and Dreyer will hope to interfere with the plans of Shaun Whyte (First Technology Yamaha) and Cell C Suzuki’s Hudson Kennaugh, who will fight for the year’s Superbike runner-up spot at AA Kyalami. -

- As usual, Privateer racer Charles Grassie, hoping to improve on his current sixth place in the 2003 SA Superbike Privateers’ Challenge, will round out the team
