Sasol Steam Team hotshots Johan Fourie (Sasol DualFuel Astra) and Shaun Watson-Smith (MAN-Macromed/Sasol Astra) literally have "a point to prove" in the 3rd round of the WesBank Samcar Championship at Aldo Scribante, Port Elizabeth, on Saturday (12 April). -

- It might be the Sasol-backed Supervan Racing home track in the renowned "Friendly City", but in motor racing your team-mate ain't your friend, he's your main opposition, target and man to beat. -

- Following the opening two rounds of the Vodacom Power Tour, Capetonian Fourie, who leads his Port Elizabeth-based friend and foe by a single point, knows that his favourite past-time of racing radio-controlled model cars is small-fry compared to Watson-Smith's resolve to persevere, prove and provide the goods for his family, friends, fans and ego on the circuit where he can break the latest of them all, or end up in the new Coega industrial development, not far from the end of the main straight. -

- At the same time, the "Windy City" (comparative) saloon car and V8 veteran would (again) love to "blow smoke" up his younger compatriot's front fairing throughout the two races at the coast. -

- Meanwhile, back at the MAD BUZZ MUSTANG ranch, Melvill Priest, backed for the 2003 season by the "no bull, just power" energy drink, will wait in the wings of his more-experienced Supervan Racing duo, to prove his podium potential and self-abled rapid advance to the battle for a regular top spot finish. -

- All will be hoping for a dry race day after rain featured and influenced matters at Killarney last month. -

- Phillip Kekana and his Sasol DualFuel Polo's performance in Cape Town made quite a few fellow competitors sit up and "take notice".-

- The "Township Tornado", who recently celebrated his 37th birthday, raced there with conviction to take 13th in the two Engen Volkswagen Cup events, marginally off the front-runners' pace. -

- Aldo Scribante is the Sowetan's testing home, having done all the pre and early-season development on the Sasol Polo at the short and tight circuit. -

- This weekend, his target is the top ten. By mid-season Kekana believes he can duel with the top 6 on a regular basis. -

- In the Production Car category, the gaggle of Sasol DualFueled privateers are destined for further success in class C and D. -

- In the former class, Craig Nicholson (Sabat Honda) claimed a brace of 2nd's at Killarney. In class D, Clint Weston won both the debut races for the new Furman Glass Ford Ikon. Miguel Pasquali is his support in a second Ikon, while Citizen Motoring's Angus Thompson (Motorhouse City Golf) achieved a well-earned podium. -

- Aldo Scribante always produces close racing, making for a memorable day for the many "petrol heads" who always support with passion in Port Elizabeth. -

- As ever, Sasol will be behind many competitors, and often in front when it comes to the Sasol Steam Team members. -
