Congratulations go to Joao Barbosa, Terry Borcheller, Ryan Dalziel and Mike Rockenfeller for taking an unfancied and unexpected win for the underdog Action Express team!
The early demise of the no.02 Ganassi entry featuring Scott Dixon, Dario Franchitti, Juan Pablo Montoya and Jamie McMurray cost everybody points, they were so hotly tipped that every player picked one or two drivers from the team! Engine failure meant they were only classified 37th, though were were still awarded 1 point under the ARFL points system.
Several players also picked drivers from the Bourdais/Collard/Maassen car which also ran into trouble and only finished 23rd overall, a lot of points were lost there as they only picked up 7 game points.
The big winner this week is RG who despite picking two drivers from that 02 car and most picking one, still managed to score a convincing win. Congrats RG! You were the only one to have 4 drivers scoring in double-figures, the rest of us only had 3 such drivers, with one exception.
At the other end of the admittedly-small field, Jackie predicted she wouldn’t do so well and unfortunately this came true as she was the only player to have 2 drivers picking up points in double-figures. Don’t let that put you off! There isn’t a huge gap, and hopefully some more players will join up over the next few weeks so you still have an advantage.
Speedgeek and myself were the only ones to pick a driver from the 1st and 2nd placed cars, so we place well too. Jussayin’.
Scores from Week 1:
|Player||Week 1||Total Score|
Note – as this is week one and I’m finding my feet still, I may have overlooked something simple, if so I will advise if there are any changes.
Thanks hugely to the initial entrants – and I hope some more players join when the more familiar series kick off!
EDIT – I’ve uploaded the Scoresheet to Google Docs. This is the file showing everyone’s picks and what those picks scored. There is also a master scoresheet which generates the score for each driver, but that’s too big for Google Docs to convert.
The TMR Game takes a break next week. The next events eligible for points are the WRC Rally Sweden and the NASCAR Daytona 500 over the weekend of 13-14 February and I plan to open entries on Wednesday 10th.
I’d appreciate some feedback on an appropriate closing time for entries for that weekend. Is Friday okay, given the rally runs that day? We could say midday UK. I will look up the rally schedule and confirm in the entry post next Wednesday.
