Points Awarded – Week 43
A tie for the win, and it is between two of closest-matched players! Well done Jackie and Burwellian. They had near-identical picks, the only difference being Burwellian had Jeff Gordon and Jackie had Kyle Busch – normally this would have split them and also guaranteed a pretty strong result, as it was both drivers scored a single point each and guaranteed the tie.
Those same drivers hurt quite a few of us particularly myself, Jon and Startledbunny. Speedgeek was hit by the poor results of Montoya, Logano and McMurray while RG had Logano and Kyle Busch. Jon and RG had some pretty good scores, considering.
I’ve not ranked ties.
Check out Sebastian’s break-down of the scores to see how you got there.
Overall Standings – Week 43
Sebastian’s lead has been unassailable for a while now and still he’s accelerating away, good job. I’m pottering along in 2nd position still.
The real battle is for 3rd and it has tightened up once more as RG outscored Sean by 4 points, to bring the gap to just 3 entering the final round – which way will it go?
All the other positions are pretty much set until you reach the Burwellian/Jackie battle for 8th. Burwellian has opened a real advantage ahead of a single-event week, the only way that place will be lost is if he scores as badly as I did this week and Jackie does well. This has been a fun fight!
Coming Up – Week 44
DTM – The final DTM round of the year is also the final TMRG race of the year. The venue is an as-yet unused street course in Shanghai, I’ve no idea why they aren’t using the multi-million-of-any-currency facility out of town. Being a street course it could be a bit of a crashfest, so who do you pick?
Enjoy the race if you can actually see it, and please do leave your game feedback here!
