TMR Game 2011 – Week 14

Hello and welcome to TMR Game Week 14.

After a week’s break we are back in action, and this post accepts entries for:

– MotoGP Estoril
– IndyCar Sao Paulo (street course)
– NASCAR Cup Richmond
– DTM Hockenheim

Housekeeping

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.

Scores

With no racing this past weekend, we move straight into a reminder of the overall leaderboard.

Upcoming Races

There are four races this weekend which count towards the game, this is a great chance to put some high scores on the board.

MotoGP: Estoril, Portugal

This could prove to be a fun race, however the long front straight may mean we only see one team up front. Have Ducati and Yamaha been able to catch Honda? What difference can Rossi make here? www.motogp.com

IndyCar Series: Streets of Sao Paulo

From a long-time classic street race to a newcomer, the streets of the city of Sao Paulo host their second ever IndyCar race. Last year was chaotic, what fun will this year’s event bring? www.indycar.com

DTM: Hockenheim

The first DTM race of the season takes place at the Hockenheimring. For the second year running the cars are largely unchanged as the series takes a cost-cutting break in the previously-normal annual upgrades, ahead of the all-new 2012 car. I’m sure some work has been done though so past form may not be accurate, how are Mercedes and Audi matched this season? www.dtm.com and driver list. Generally it is better to pick drivers in the more recent (2009) cars rather than those a year older.. but not always.

NASCAR Cup: Richmond

A track where the driver should be able to make some sort of difference, but I still wonder whether I’ll actually pick from this pool this week..  www.nascar.com

  2. There are one or two drivers with a history of very solid results at Richmond, but then I thought that was the case at Martinsville until the last safety jumbled it up. It would have to be a very long winter before I would want to watch the DTM, but I will be interested to find out how Green and Rockenfeller do now they have been promoted to ’09 cars, with di Resta moving to F1 and Tomcyzk being demoted.

    Heheh! If the racing championships get too predictable we could offer one bonus point for picking the winner of a non-racing sport..
    On a serious note though, DTM just doesn’t seem to feature any passing at all and even the strategy seems to have little effect. I stopped watching it. I have half a mind to drop it from the game next year.
