With four rounds left in the 2003 South African Production Car Championship, the Aldo Scribante circuit in Port Elizabeth will be busy-busy-busy this weekend with more than 50 entries in the five title chases.

Anthony Taylor and Etienne van der Linde, the Class A points leader in a Castrol BMW 330i, will be battling it out with their closest rival, Reghardt Roets in his Kaye-Eddie car.

But Leeroy Poulter (Champion EON Mercedes-Benz C320), Steve Wyndham

(Ford Credit Falcon XR8) and Shaun van der Linde (Castrol equipe’s BMW 330i) will be hot on their heels to topple the current championship kings as all three drivers have already won a race this year and could cause some upsets.

So too could British youngster Steve Morris, bent on retribution in his Kaye-

Eddie BMW 330i after falling foul to robust driving tactics at Phakisa last month.

Class B points leader Dawie Brough and his Prominent Paints Honda Ballade V-

TEC will come under relentless attack from youngster Bert Grogor (German

Workshop Toyota Corolla RSi) and veteran Mike O’Sulivan in his OKI Honda

Ballade V-TEC.

Lawrence Boshoff (Orbit Coach Honda Ballade 180i) will start as the Class C favourite, expecting a fierce challenge from Doug Reekie (Ray-Ban Honda Ballade 180i) and CAR’s own Craig Nicholson in his Sabat Honda Ballade 180i.

Heading Class D is the current Junior SA Production Car Champion Dave Compton in his Bumper Tech Toyota Tazz 1600 who will come under fire from Clinton Weston (Furman Glass Ikon 160i), Fanie de Bruin (M&R Ikon 160i) and Miguel Pasqualli.

The production cars will tackle two races this weekend, with all five classes taking to the Scribante circuit at the same time.

“That will make matters extremely interesting throughout the field,” said Vaughn Williams, chairman of the Production Car Racing Association.

“The Scribante circuit’s tight nature and abrasive surface will also make

tyre conservation a prime consideration, forcing drivers to maintain a fine

balance between aggression and smoothness.”
