Do check the more detailed sheet produced by Sebastian.

What a great result for Sean! He proved himself right and most of us wrong by picking 2 from the top 5 in the Cup race which, Reutimann aside, did have a predictable top ten result.

Good results from Maverick and Jackie who keep saying they don’t know much about racing outside F1, I think you’re getting the hang of it now, keep it up!

A lot of people were hit by the DNF from Will Power, and a couple of people – Sebastian and Dylan – also picked Tony Kanaan so had this been a normal IndyCar street race they’d have scored much more than they actually did.

Interesting to see a three-way tie on 317 through three different strategies. And no I haven’t ranked them, this is just how Excel did it!. The reason I don’t rank them is that my day job is working in accounts where I deal with detail in numbers, when I get home I don’t want to do any more of that, I just want to award people their points and move on.

Sean scoring well and Sebastian scoring badly mean they switch positions again, with a bit of a buffer between them this time.

Jackie and Mav switch places yet again and are only a point apart! They are closing in on Andy and Felipe and have actually been doing so for 4 weeks now. Time for a fightback?

All else is quiet on the leaderboard save for The Crooked Cap who relegates James a position and sets off in pursuit of Dylan.

Gavin has increased his advantage over me by 10 points..

Upcoming Races

After a few hectic weeks we just have a choice from two races this time.

MotoGP – Sachsenring

The notable aspect of this course is the never-ending series of left-handers which start tight and gradually open out, looping around the opening sequence of corners. I’m not sure it means anything, it’s just odd.  Wiki / MotoGP.com

NASCAR Cup: New Hampshire

A flat 1 mile oval, I might’ve been tempted to take more than 3 picks if the ‘companion race’ wasn’t the predictable MotoGP.. and I’ll still think about it. This is the first of two visits, the other being in September. Wiki / NASCAR.com

Good luck!

    They should favour Pedrosa’s shoulder funnily enough
