Kidderminster’s Nathan Freke, racing for Century Motorsport had a varied weekend at Rockingham, but left requiring only 10 more point to clinch the Michelin Ginetta G50 championship at the final 3 races at Brands Hatch (Oct 3rd/4th).

After finishing runner-up to closest title rival Frank Wrathall in Saturday’s 10-lap race and then dropping out of contention in Sunday morning’s 24th round with alternator problems, although after a pit stop he did manage a top 10 finish. Nathan scorched to a clear victory in the third of the weekend’s races to lead home team-mate Benji Hetherington in the first ever one-two finish for the EOS Productions-backed squad.

Frank Wrathall had closed down nathan’s advantage to 64 points with a win in round 24, capitalising well on the car problems encountered by Nathans. While it is still mathematically possible for Wrathall to win the 2009 Michelin Ginetta G50 Cup, the odds are stacked massively against him and Nathan will only need an 11th place finish in the first of the trio of races at Brands Hatch Grand Prix Circuit next month to seal the title victory.

Nathan’s 12th win of the season in round 25 came off the back of a controlled drive from pole position, speaking after round 25, Nathan said: “This win makes up for the problem in the previous race. I didn’t get the best start while Frank (Wrathall) got away well, but then at Deene all I could see behind was carnage. My car was sublime, the team has done a fantastic job all season and I’m ecstatic to see team mate Benji (Hetherington) on the podium too; a one-two for Century Motorsport, it can’t get any better.”

The season finale of the 2009 Michelin Ginetta G50 Cup with rounds 26, 27 and 28 will be taking place over the weekend 3rd/4th October at Brands Hatch Grand Prix Circuit in Kent.

Nathan is now considering his options for 2010 and is looking at either British Touring Cars or the Porsche Carrera Cup, both of which will require extensive funding.
