Amazingly I’ve taken a second win in three weeks! As a player I’m really pleased as it shows I’m improving. Clearly the IndyCar strategy was the right one for this week and I’m glad it worked. Jon split his picks to come second, RG used a DTM-heavy entry to place 3rd.

For further insight into how the scores were calculated, Sebastian shows them in a different format and you can see the table here.

I’m closing the gap to Sebastian but it’ll take a missed week for me to overhaul him, I’m very pleased to open the gap to RG a little to help secure my 2nd position.

Jon outscored Speedgeek for the second week running and there is a mere 60 points between them, this is the closest battle in the table at the moment. Jackie will likely catch and pass Burwellian in 2 or 3 weeks. Everyone else is doing a solid job, nobody is making massive gains or losses from week to week and it seems to largely balance out over the last few weeks – I’ve not fully analysed it though.

Results sheets are now available on the TMR drop.io.

Coming Up – Week 35

Formula 1 – Singapore Grand Prix, the only full night race on the F1 schedule although Abu Dhabi races into the night. Rain is due but will it clear before the race starts?

NASCAR Sprint Cup – Dover this week. Current Standings

Enjoy the races!

  1. Finally, got a battle on my hands. Was too far off the leading pack, so kind of hoped to slip back a bit :)

    I’d like to switch back to my last 5+5 selection of NASCAR & F1 drivers please. Could you also remind me who the F1 drivers in that selection were; might want to adapt it.

  2. I’d hoped the prospect of competition would bring a revised entry. :)

    Your last 5+5 selection was used up until week 27:
    F1: Vettel, Webber, Hamilton, Alonso, Massa
    NASCAR: Johnson, Kenseth, Biffle, Harvick, Gordon

  3. Massa out, Button in for the F1 then please.

    I’m kinda out of touch with Nascar so happy to leave that as is unless there’s been something major I’ve missed involving one of the drivers.

    Cheers :)
