With Henry coming in at 1540 championship points to Ying’s 1500, she was just a few points shy of taking out the top honours.

Always the bridesmaid but never the bride. Better luck next time Ying Bot!

Rounding out the top 3 was Viv piloting the little red Sirion. Always making sure he was keeping the troublesome Toyota’s honest on the track, the 1.3 went toe to toe in lap times and held it’s own against the big block 1.5 litre Echo’s.

Special mention to Adam Mills who co-drove this car and finished in 4th place!

Placing: 3rd
Driver: Viv Dilkes-Frayne
Nugget: Daihatsu Sirion GTVI

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.
