I really enjoyed the Spa race, so good to get some LMP action again with a decently-sized field, and the GTE battle was pretty good too. The Turkish GP was all-action throughout, I couldn’t turn away. Two great races. I missed the NASCAR but with that topsy-turvey finishing order, dare I ask whether it was a good one?
Scores This Week
|Player||Formula One||ILMC / LMS||NASCAR Cup||Week 15|
|The Crooked Cap||140||67||102||309|
|No Entry Received: 80% of lowest score|
Congratulations Felipe! Good scores too from Rubbergoat, Sean, Sebastian and Maverick, who’d picked the same as Sebastian. Indeed the top six all correctly picked the top 4 ILMC finishers as well as 1st, 2nd and 4th in the F1 race.
Commiserations to Ryan and Dylan who bring up the rear after making a few NASCAR picks which didn’t pay off.
As Sean identified in the comments of last week’s post, this table proves the right strategy with Darlington on the schedule is to go for a strong sportscar/F1 mix. Do also take a look at the more detailed sheet produced by Sebastian.
|6||6||0||The Crooked Cap||2384||309||2693|
Sean edges a few more points further away from Sebastian.
Rubbergoat moves into 3rd position, with myself 4th and Felipe jumps two spots to claim 5th. Sadly James drops several places after not entering, at least we have the 80% rule now so he’s still in contention for a top 3 or 4 finish.
‘Bunny is up into 8th. Maverick made some good gains to regain some lost ground on fellow VivaF1 player Jackie. Speedgeek moved up a spot too, while Ryan and Jay drop back. It seems as though Mike is no longer playing.
There are three races this weekend which count towards the game.
MotoGP: French Grand Prix, Le Mans
The hairpins of the Bugatti Circuit play host to the French round of the series, which for some reason seems to attract rain if I remember the past few years correctly. www.motogp.com
The second round of the late-starting DTM series visits the sandy Dutch track, the modern version of which has a reputation for a lack of passing. That seems an apt fit for a championship with a modern reputation for a lack of passing. Such a shame when both the series and venue in past versions used to be known for their overtaking possibilities. www.dtm.com (EN)
NASCAR Cup: Dover
To Delaware and the one-miler paved with concrete, ‘the Monster Mile’. www.nascar.com
