Nulon Nationals Round 3 - Final Drag Battle!

Recommended Posts

NULON NATIONALS - ROUND 3 - DRAG BATTLE

Corporate-Logo-White-background-national

Ok guys, for those of you that are unaware SAU has been competing in the 3 round club vs club challenge that Nulon has been kind enough to put on for us. Nulon has been looking after car clubs by not only running these events but also sponsoring each driver with the entry fees, merchanidise and even their product. The rounds consisted of -

Hillclimb - Buladelah

Track battle - Wakefield Park

Drag battle - Cootamundra Airport

If you have attended one of the previous events or are planning on spectating at this event (details at the bottom of this thread) please make sure you thank the Nulon team for allowing our club to be a part of this awesome event, also keep an eye out for the man that made all this happen "Chris Dawe" and make sure you buy him a beer to say thanks!

Head over too - http://www.nulon.com.au/ or give them a like on Facebook!!!

SAU has attended the first 2 events so far and are currently sitting in second place on the overall points score -

1st place : Evolution Oz - 364 - points
2nd Place: Skylines Australia SAU - NSW - 322 points
3rd Place: BYP Racing and Developments - 288 points
4th Place: HSV Owners Club -237 Points
5th Place : MX-5 Club of NSW - 212 Points
6th Place: Toyota GT86 and Subaru BRZ Drivers Club - 209 Points
7th Place: Australian Ford Forums - 87 Points
Unfortunately for us we had bad weather at the hillclimb and not many runs so we came out 6th at that event, we clawed our way back to second after taking out the round win at Wakefield Park. Now it is time for the 3rd and final round and with double points on the table we figured we better step it up a notch.
With the removal of the rule where cars had to back up after the previous round we decided to send down a dedicated team of some of the toughest Nissans we have to offer, with the help of our Team Captain for this round Kat (GTRkat) we present the following team members -

Go either via Harden or on the Muttama Road turn off (will be a left slip lane and a bridge that goes over the highway)

They are the 2 best roads.
