Hello and welcome to TMR Game Week 15.
I hope you enjoyed the events this last weekend, I was away at a racetrack so I missed all of them! Hopefully I’ll see the MotoGP and IndyCar soon, although I had to look up the results to write these results so I’m not sure if I’ll bother now.
This post accepts entries for:
– F1 Istanbul
– ILMC/LMS Spa-Franchorchamps
– NASCAR Cup Darlington
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 This Week

What a fantastic score from Sean! Crooked Cap did well too. The gap between Sebastian and Speedgeek wasn’t really that huge, but the gaps in front and behind that middle group were fairly large. Sadly for Mav, Jay and Mike this was not the week to miss an entry.
Sean scored 101 points more than I did: ouch!
Here is the breakdown of the scores per driver, as kindly produced by Sebastian. Everybody rightly picked Will Power! You can also see that Sean scored 403 points from a possible 430.
|6||10||4||The Crooked Cap||1987||397||2384||19|
Sean extends his lead over Sebastian to 100 points, who in turns holds a lead of 100 points over 3rd-placed James.
I’ve fallen two places to 5th with James and RubberGoat overtaking me, the three of us are still close together though so I can fight back this week.
Lots of position changes throughout. The Crooked Cap’s good score this week lead to a gain of 4 places, nicely done. Jay and Maverick fell back several spots. Things are nice and tight in the midfield still but the leaders are running away now, this fight looks like a real battle between Sean and Sebastian.
There are three races this weekend which count towards the game.
F1: Turkish Grand Prix, Istanbul
This could be the final visit to Istanbul Park which will be a shame as it isn’t the worst of the Tilke tracks, the long back straight (including corner) into the final section is a great passing opportunity even without the DRS, which will be in that zone for this race. www.f1.com
ILMC / LMS: 6 Heures du Spa-Francorchamps
Spa’s LMS round switches from a 1000km distance to a timed 6hr duration, and the LMS field will be joined by the participants in the ILMC. This is the final opportunity for Audi and Peugeot to battle each other before the Big One in June, and Audi will at last race their new car! We’ve got three Audis, three Peugeots and the older-model ORECA Peugeot. It’ll be fascinating to see how this plays out. You can find an entry list at the LMS website. There is a switch to English but I left it in French because ACO-sanctioned racing just looks right in French. Sadly it looks like AMR has pulled out.
NASCAR Cup: Darlington
