Points Awarded – Week 24
Sebastian has been keeping his own records of the scores and has kindly made them available for all players to see, his tables are presented differently to mine and show a break-down of points awarded to each player’s drivers. You can view the table here.
Congratulations Jon! This makes up for the rather low score of last week, what a way to come back. I’m next and I’m very happy with that result! Sebastian completes the rostrum.
Scores are a little more spread out than usual this week, that’s partly due there being four events to choose from and partly because one of those was a sportscar race and those who picked both of the winning drivers were rewarded.
Overall Standings – Week 24
Jon’s top score this week means he reigns in some of the gap lost last week, scoring nearly 100 points more than the two ahead of him and regaining some space on Startledbunny. I have closed in a little on Sebastian, again making up for a deficit last week.
RG’s 4th-best score this week propels him above The Speedgeek once again, these two have been having a battle for a little while now I think.
Not much other movement, though Jackie is beginning to get within range of Burwellian.
Results sheets will available on the TMR drop.io from Wednesday night.
Coming Up – Week 25
Two events this week:
Le Mans Series – The 1000 km of Portimao is held on Saturday evening and should end in darkness. The surprisingly thin entry list is on the official site, there are just 32 cars which is a significant drop from the usual 50 or so and that’s a shame.
IndyCar Series – IndyCars at Toronto’s Exhibition Place, now considered a traditional event for open-wheel cars despite usually being a war of attrition – that’s what makes it so challenging. It is a short and bumpy street course and completely unforgiving. More info at www.indycar.com
Enjoy the races!
