Due to the paper thin walls and the creakiest floor boards known to man kind, most of our cabin was up well before we needed to be at the track, which was only a few metres from our accommodation.
As we all rolled into the pits…
…it was time to get our cars ready for scrutineering.
With the last round of Nugget Nationals held in NSW we had a few Sydney Nugget competitors come down and join us.
In possibly the most hotly contested track day of the whole series, the top 4 front runners (Adam, Viv, Henry and Ying) were out setting nail bitingly close lap times.
Nugget Nationals – Session 4
After each session we came back and shared tips with each other, than got annoyed when our fellow competitors went faster after trying new techniques.
The best thing about Nugget Nationals? We’re all fierce rivals on track but good friends once the helmets come off.
In a wild last session, Ying somehow managed to take half a second off her previous time which would also ultimately deliver her the first place victory for that round!
