Hello and welcome to TMR Game Week 41.
4 weeks to go including this one. This post accepts entries for these 2 events:
– MotoGP Valencia
– NASCAR Cup Texas
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.
|Week 40||F1||NASCAR Cup|
|Felipe Gana (80%)||203|
|Crooked Cap (80%)||203|
|Mike Rice (80%)||203|
Three in a row for Gavin! Well done.
Andy and Sebastian tied for 2nd and it is good to see Dylan make an appearance at the top end of the table.
A couple of people were caught out by low scores from Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch, and to some extent Brad Keselowski and Felipe Massa. Maverick in particular was let down as he had marginally the best F1 score, yet a poor Cup score sees him near the back this week.
Please see the score-by-score results produced by Sebastian. Interestingly – or maybe predictably – everybody picked the top four F1 drivers.
|12||12||0||The Crooked Cap||8238||203||8441||395|
Sebastian’s lead extends once more, and Gavin is striding away from that middle order pack. I think the top 3 are nearly confirmed unless Sean can mount a comeback.
I’ve retaken 4th position but only barely. Speedgeek has overtaken Felipe who didn’t place an entry. This whole midfield group is still fighting for position with just a few weeks to go!
Races This Week
The final round of the season and I’m sure it is one the riders and teams are not looking forward to. Marco Simoncelli’s Dad has called for ‘a minute’s noise’ rather than one of silence and I hope it is well-observed.
I do understand if people would prefer not to pick from this race, although you’ll leave yourself open to people who do..
Colin Edwards will not be racing, there is a substitute rider but I wouldn’t pick him as he doesn’t have experience at this level.
NASCAR Cup Texas
Back to the high-banks for the Cup drivers. Matt Kenseth won here in the Spring with Bowyer 2nd and Edwards 3rd.
There are three weeks left after this one and these are the races coming up:
Week 42 – F1 Abu Dhabi GP, ILMC Zhuhai 6 Hrs, NASCAR Cup Phoenix
Week 43 – NASCAR Cup Homestead-Miami
Week 44 – F1 Brazilian GP
