Points Awarded – Week 34
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.
Overall Standings – Week 34
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!
