TMR Game – Week 9

Welcome to Week 9 of the Too Much Racing Game!

I hope you enjoyed Sebring and Bristol, those who saw or listened to it!

There will be no results this week, I am presently travelling back to the UK from a holiday in Spain (this post was written last week!). I could update this post but then I can’t be sure everyone will see them and I don’t want to do two posts in one week, neither do I want to delay the entry, so I’ll do a double-dose next week.

Quick-Start

Racing this week:
Formula 1 – Australian Grand Prix, Albert Park, Melbourne, Australia;
IndyCar – St Petersburg, Florida, USA;
NASCAR Cup – Martinsville, Virginia, USA;

All you have to do is reply to this post and pick up to 10 drivers! The only limit? No more than 7 in one race.

The cutoff is Friday 28th March at 11.59pm GMT. Call it midnight Friday night. Good luck! Please note that Europe changes to Summer time on Sunday morning – check your timezones. That goes for everyone, just be sure.

How To Enter

1. Reply to this post.

2. List up to 10 drivers, with no more than 7 from a single event.

3. Send your entry before the stated deadline, usually some time on a Friday. You can make as many changes as you like until the closing point, I’ll take your last entry.

Most weeks feature 2 or 3 races, some weeks may have more than that and some may only have one. There’s not a rule stating you have to choose from each race, any combination of up to 10 drivers is accepted.

Further information can be found on the  game sub-page.

Week 9

There are THREE events this week.

F1 – Australian GP

Bahrain wasn’t a brilliant demo of the new rules, but Albert Park always throws up an oddity of a race so let’s hope it does so this year.

IndyCar – St Petersburg

A visit to Florida and the part-street part-airport circuit in St Pete.

NASCAR Cup – Martinsville

I’m not sure what to say about this one because I tend to lose interest in NASCAR by this stage of the season, when F1 and IndyCar have kicked off, so I’ve never actually seen a race from here.

Further Info

I will be back home at about 9pm UK time. I don’t think I’ll be doing much with the game until tomorrow night, I’ll address any issues then.

Good luck!

  1. OK, apologies for doing quite so well last week. I think I made good picks but I got very lucky. Commiserations to James – terrible week to miss.

    For this week I wavered over Rosberg or Schumacher but my dislike for the latter is such that I may as well get some points out of it if he does well. NASCAR, I am picking the top three from the last race, but not just because of that.

    Formula One:

    Fernando Alonso
    Felipe Massa
    Jenson Button
    Lewis Hamilton
    Michael Schumacher
    Mark Webber
    Sebastian Vettel

    NASCAR:

    Jimmie Johnson
    Kurt Busch
    Tony Stewart

  5. Thanks Sebastian, very useful!

    Guys, my router has broken and I won’t be online properly until Saturday at the earliest. I’ll verify the scores when I’m up and running again.

  6. Yes the Google scoresheet is an old one and the Game page hasn’t been updated for some time (I hadn’t realised there was an error on it – thanks).
    I plan to update both next week.
