Congratulations Sebastian! Well done also to Mav, Rubbergoat and Sean who score within 10 points of the winner. As Sebastian pointed out in an email, the top three scorers had all their ten picks finish in the top four of their event, Jackie’s were all in the top five, and Sean and Speedgeek’s were all in the top six. Either the results of these series are too predictable or people are getting better at making picks!
I’d have joined you if it hadn’t been for Paffett’s DNF. Those who picked Cup drivers are again towards the bottom as they were victims of DNFs too.
Do check the more detailed sheet produced by Sebastian.

Sebastian extends his advantage over Sean by 9 points.
RubberGoat comprehensively beat me this week so he takes the 3rd spot for now, but I’m determined to get it back!
The VivaF1 pair continue their onward march up the table, this week they’ve despatched Startledbunny (and fight amongst themselves as they go..).
Both Dylan and The Crooked Cap could make up a place this week.
Another four-event week!
ALMS – Lime Rock
A week after the ILMC/LMS round, the short Lime Rock Park in Connecticut is the venue for the first ALMS round after Le Mans. It is a fast little track but there isn’t a lot of room so traffic could be a problem, though perhaps not as much as usual given the lack of prototype entrants this season. There are only three LMP entries – which is actually an improvement on Long Beach with the addition of a second Dyson car – and six LMPC (FLM) cars. I’m sure a well-driven GT car will reach the overall top six but that might be too far down given how competitive this game has become.
It is F1’s turn to sample the all-new pit and paddock facilities, it’ll be interesting to see how the GP atmosphere changes along with it. The old pits won’t be a complete ghost town with GP2 based there.
The track itself is pretty much as debuted last year, which turned out to be quite boring. If there’s anywhere the Pirelli/DRS/KERS combo should work well though, I think it is Silverstone.
NASCAR Cup: Kentucky
The Cup Series has never visited Kentucky before and I’m even less familiar with Nationwide races than I am Cup, so I don’t really know what to expect here other than the same as you would see at any other 1.5 mile oval.
IndyCar – Toronto
This fairly short street track is very bumpy and a lot of crashes, bumps and bashes are usually to be had. This one is the survival of the fittest. Tricky place, the Exhibition Place street course. The obvious question, so obvious it is now a cliche, is can Paul Tracy score a top three result? He’s always very fast here even this late into his career, he does get involved in incidents though. If I were betting my money would be elsewhere, but I may pick him if I’m feeling like a gamble later in the week.
