Hello and welcome to a downbeat TMR Game Week 39.
6 weeks to go. This post accepts entries for these 3 events:
– MotoGP Sepang
– DTM Hockenheim
– NASCAR Cup Talladega
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 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.
RIP Dan Wheldon. Obviously the IndyCar race was abandoned and so no points have been awarded.
Spies and Lorenzo were ruled out of racing in the MotoGP due to injuries after crashing in practice and warm-up.
Not a good week.

Well done Gavin, a great F1 score there, the only one to pick 6 F1 drivers and they all finished in the top six!
The combination of the IndyCar no-score and the withdrawal of two front-running MotoGP riders made for some strange scores and a wide spread between players. It meant our championship protagonists tied despite initially picking differently.
Please see the score-by-score results produced by Sebastian.

We know the season is closing soon when the top players break 10,000 points..
Mav and Felipe switch places with me sitting in the middle.
Races This Week
If the Hondas have a power advantage they’ll surely love the long straights of Sepang. Note that Lorenzo will be missing this race as well so don’t pick him. No word on Spies yet, so it may be prudent not to pick him.
The penultimate race of the season and the final race in Europe. I think it totally bizarre to end the season outside Germany let alone outside Europe but that is what they are doing. Apparently this is the final race, that makes more sense..
NASCAR Cup Talladega
Talladega scares me after the events of last weekend. NASCAR pack racing is at least a little safer at lower speeds but it isn’t something I’ll be rushing to watch.
To aid your planning these are the remaining races this season:
Week 40 – F1 Indian GP, NASCAR Cup Martinsville
Week 41 – MotoGP Valencia, NASCAR Cup Texas
Week 42 – F1 Abu Dhabi GP, ILMC Zhuhai 6 Hrs, NASCAR Cup Phoenix
Week 43 – NASCAR Cup Homestead-Miami
Week 44 – F1 Brazilian GP
