Hello and welcome to TMR Game Week 11.
This post accepts entries for these races:
– Sepang (F1);
– Barber Motorsport Park (IndyCar);
– Texas Motor Speedway (NASCAR Cup);
Each week you pick 10 entries with a maximum of 7 of those coming from a single championship. You can have any mix of races from those listed in this post, and you don’t have to use all of them.
See this page for the game rules.
Email reminders will be sent on Thursdays or Fridays by either myself or Sebastian. Please leave a valid email address in the comment form. If you do not wish to receive reminders please let us know, otherwise we’ll assume we’re okay to send them. Also let us know (privately if you prefer) if you would like to use a different address to the one you use here. I may also use Twitter or other sites if I happen to see you there on Thursday or Friday.
The deadline for entries is Saturday morning at 6am GMT / 1am ET.

A great MotoGP race in mixed conditions really jumbled up the order, and the weak and unreliable LMS field had the same effect at Paul Ricard. I didn’t follow the Cup race but it looks like some fancied runners slipped back there, too.
Scores This Week
|No Entry Received: 80% of lowest score|
|The Crooked Cap||189|
Congratulations to Sean for the second week running! There are strong results for James and Dylan too.
There were some divergent strategies in play with series splits, yet interestingly both Sean in 1st and Felipe at the back took the same route with 5 Cup picks, 4 MotoGP and 1 LMS – the difference was all in the selections where Felipe was let down by some poor Cup results.
I advise you to check Sebastian’s figures here for a detailed look at your results (I really should’ve picked Pedrosa!).

Sean extends his lead but James jumps into 2nd position ahead of Sebastian.
Dylan’s now on my tail fighting for 4th, Jay’s not far behind him. RubberGoat made up some ground in the midfield there.
Some position changes at the back end as Jackie and The Speedgeek post good scores, and The Crooked Cap was awarded a bogey score for a non-entry.
Undoubtedly I’ve forgotten to mention something or made a transposition error somewhere, please do point things out, let us know how you are doing. 🙂
F1: Malaysian Grand Prix, Sepang
They say the predictions of 3 or 4 pit stops will come true at Sepang, plus the rear wing should have more of an effect here. Let’s see if either of those things are true – they may not be if it rains.
IndyCar Series: Barber Motorsports Park, Alabama
This picturesque road course may open up a chance for a non-Ganassi non-Penske win.. maybe… hopefully? Andretti nearly did it last year. www.indycar.com
NASCAR Cup: Texas Motor Speedway
Blah. It is hard to write words about the same series nearly every single week, I’m sure you have some idea of picks by now! www.nascar.com
