Well done Sean!

Sean, Sebastian and Speedgeek smashed the Asian LMS points with 279 each and it was Sean with the right strategy, splitting the other series and picking up 10 more points. I wasn’t far behind the trio and I’m happy with that.

Startledbunny and Jon tied, I haven’t ranked them in any order this is just how Excel sorted them.

RG’s largely non-sportscar picks cost him dearly.

Check out Sebastian’s break-down of the scores to see how you got there.

Sean’s win and RG’s bad week sees Sean close up 88 points on his rival to now lie just 5 points behind 3rd position, with 3 rounds to go the last podium spot is all to play for – who would’ve guessed that a few weeks ago?

Jon and Startledbunny tied and remain at a 42 point gap, which is still within striking distance.

We have position changes! Burwellian and Jackie have caught and passed James who was a carryover entry. Burwellian opened up 10 points on Jackie, who is just 2 points ahead of James now. The battle for 8th is hotting up.

The weekend ahead sees the final multi-race round and the last chance to pick up big points, before we have a lone NASCAR week and then a lone DTM week, in both weeks the scores will be very tight. Make sure you enter this week!

Coming Up – Week 42

Formula 1 – The season finale at Abu Dhabi, where the title goes to the wire with a fight between Alonso, Webber, Vettel and Hamilton. Since some of them require a win to take the crown I really hope it means we see an interesting race there this year.

World Rally – Another season finale, this time in Wales for the forests of Rally Great Britain.

Sprint Cup – The year’s second visit to Phoenix, Arizona, for the penultimate round of the championship.

There are three weekends to go including this one. Enjoy the races and please do leave your feedback.

  1. Ah, the really big scores were for LMS and I knew I’d blow it with that, still I’m chuffed that Burwellian didn’t open up an even bigger gap on me so it’s still all to play for. I’m kinda sad that the game is drawing to a close as it’s been a lot of fun.

  2. I forgot how cursed Brazilians are at the Brazilian GP! Knew I should have taken Webber instead of Massa… 🙂

    And yeah, this is a fun battle; does it really have to end so soon?
