Nugget Nationals 2017 – Round 3, Dyno Day

Round 3 of Nugget Nationals again saw our fleet of under powered vehicles congregate at Weltmeister Eastside.

To assist the power challenged Nuggets in the track rounds, we’ve awarded points a little differently and in reverse order.

As usual, we sent the invite out to our other friends to come join us for a BBQ on an unexpectedly pleasant winter day (I’ll cover this off in the Part II post).

To assist the power challenged Nuggets in the track rounds, we’ve awarded points a little differently and in reverse order.

This means that the Nuggets with the lowest kilowatts have been awarded the highest points for Round 2!

Round 1: Dyno day results and point allocation

With the majority of the Nugget events being motorsport orientated, we decided to allocate points a little differently for our dyno round.

To assist the power challenged Nuggets, we’ve awarded points in reverse order.

This means that the Nuggets with the lowest kilowatts have been awarded the highest points for round 1!

Just a reminder that this is a driver’s challenge so where there are multiple drivers of one Nugget, each driver will be awarded the points individually to contribute towards their final end of season tally.
