Hello and welcome to TMR Game Week 26.
This post accepts entries for these 4 events:
– F1 Nurburgring

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.

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.

Do check the detailed results produced by Sebastian, including efficiency tables.
Well done again Sean! It seems you and Felipe were the only ones to pick a decent NASCAR selection although several of us were let down by Kyle Busch’s 36th position.
Sebastian was the only other player to break 300 so well done to him, and also to Ryan who got close.
The rest of us are spread quite far apart for a two-race weekend, I really thought the scores would be tight!

Andy takes a position from Felipe, whilst Mav and Jackie squabble again! I’m going to have to watch my back..
There’s more potential activity in positions 9-12 as Ryan has closed some of the gap to ‘Bunny, and Crooked Cap is looking to pass Dylan.
We’re back to a four-event weekend, but surprisingly none of them have anything to do with NASCAR. The two other US series we involve in TMRG are paying a visit to Canada whilst MotoGP goes to the States.
F1 – Nurburgring
As ever at the ‘Ring the long-range forecast suggests there will be rain this weekend. The engine rules are back to how they were at Valencia so perhaps Red Bull will be on top again after Alonso’s win last time out, unless they make another pit error. F1.com
IndyCar – Edmonton
The form book is thrown out of the window for this one because it is an new track layout at this airport venue, and it only uses a small segment of the previous iteration. It looks it runs down a runway, into a hairpin and back up the other side of it, past the pits and into a tight turn 1. Those turns could see a lot of incidents and accidents. Could this be even more of a crashfest/lottery than Toronto? IndyCar.com
MotoGP – Laguna Seca
It is difficult to overtake at Laguna, even for motorbikes. These guys will give it a go though! It was a great race at Sachsenring and this track has similar characteristics so I’m hopeful we’ll see a good one here too. Surely the Honda will reign on that huge hill, but will the Yamaha make it up elsewhere? MotoGP.com
ALMS – Mosport
This is a classic venue if known for its bumps (not sure if they’ve been ironed out since the last race I watched a couple of years ago). Once again expect there to be a limited prototype entry, however there is one more LMP1 car than was at Lime Rock. Entry list is at the ALMS Race Hub.
