Points Awarded – Week 22
Well done Burwellian and Sebastian! Burwellian’s F1 and NASCAR carryover entry is a good one and routinely scores well in combined F1 and Cup weeks, this week it was good enough to win. Sebastian was just a point behind.
Once again for a Formula 1 and Cup week the scoring from top to bottom was very close, with Sean falling off the back slightly – just a slightly worse Cup score prevented him from matching James. Dank’s Cup-only carryover essentially means he’s just ticking over.
Sebastian’s challenge to James has gone in the former’s favour this week, there’s a long way to go yet though. I love these little sub-plots.
Overall Standings – Week 22
Sebastian extends his lead a little, RG is challenging Speedgeek once more and Jon is looking to do the same with Sean. There are no position changes this week as the field essentially moves forward as one with such a tight week – it is vital to put in a respectable score in weeks like this to maintain a good strike rate.
Results sheets are available on the TMR drop.io.
Coming Up – Week 23
Three events this week:
IndyCar – Back to the road courses for the IndyCars with a visit to the classic Watkins Glen. www.indycar.com
Sprint Cup – A return to Daytona for the summer 400-mile race – let’s hope the track surface doesn’t fall apart this time. Go to nascar.com for more info.
DTM – The short street track of the Norisring in Nuremberg, usually fast and frantic. www.dtm.com
I think that’s everything, I’m a touch rushed this week (no time to look for a photo!), so let me know if you spot any errors.

In the James-Sebastian like-for-like challenge, we picked eight drivers in common. James also picked Clint Boyer (7th/26 points) and Juan Pablo Montoya (34th/1), totaling 27. I had Nico Rosberg (10th/20) and Kurt Busch (3rd/35), making 55. This gives me +28 on the week, moving me from ten behind to 18 ahead, with James at 4474 and myself at 4492.
It is the second week in a row bad luck has hit James in the late laps of the NASCAR, with Ambrose throwing away the win at Sears Point and Montoya losing a strong finish at Loudon.

(Might have picked Kurt Busch for Daytona.)
Scoring correction: Burwellian is this week’s winner, by one point over Sebastian who I’d originally scored as the winner of this week. Only Burwellian’s points were affected, I’d not copied a number correctly when I was rushing to get this out last night. Thanks to Sebastian for checking.

Ugh. I think maybe my picks went to the Spam folder again.

Oops. Cut it close here. Just plain forgot. At least this time I made it.
Not picking on a plate week when I don’t have to
Oh bummer, sorry, I was so knee deep in stats last night I forgot. Can you MAKE me do the predictions on a Wednesday evening after the quiz please Pat?
I did plug it in the quiz! Maybe it was before it though.
Thanks, must have missed it. I’ll try harder, honest!
