Macau: Nash seeks to wrap up Indy crown

James Nash aims to wrap up the Indy title in the WTCC season finale in Macau
James Nash has the 2013 FIA WTCC Yokohama trophy for Independents at his fingertips heading into the season finale this weekend in Macau.

Fellow Chevrolet drivers Michel Nykjaer and Alex MacDowall have kept Nash on his toes all year, but Nykjaer pulling out with lack of funding earlier in the season and poor form half-way through the year for MacDowall has allowed Nash to open up a handy lead going into the final two races of the season.

Heading into the last weekend of the season, Nash knows what is needed to take the title; he currently leads by 41 points with 43 to play for.

“The Independent World title is so close now I can feel it!" Nash commented. "I think Alex (MacDowall) needs to win both races and set fastest lap in each in Macau without me scoring, or something like that to deprive me now of the title. But, it is Macau we're talking about for the final event and so I'm taking nothing yet for granted!”

Along with his six-class wins, the former BTCC driver has scored two-outright victories and three-podiums this year and currently holds fourth in the championship, only six points behind fellow Brit, Tom Chilton in third place.
