Prediction Competition 2009
OK, who's in for this year?

Rules for those who were not around last year.

You predict the 8 points finishers in order. The picks need to be sent by PM or e-mail to me by start of Friday practice. You then get their points if they finish top 8, however if you get their position correct you score double points. You can make gains this way by being accurate with the middle of the table, those regulars who come in 4th, 5th or 6th each time and those guys who always creep into the 7th and 8th spot.


Results are tracked on a spreadsheet. It is customary to accuse the organiser of cheating at every opportunity.

Reminder of last years results.

The final - Brazil.

Results.

Summary.

Congratulations to Apexslide for getting the season high score of 58.
Congratulations to me for getting the most number of wins at 5.

However neither took the overall points win.

And so CeHe man takes the win. Consistent to the end.

RE: Prediction Competition 2009
I'm in - last year I was hampered by my expectation that Red Bull would give Webber the car he deserves - this year they just might

anyway

Let me be the first to accuse the organiser of cheating - nothing like maintaining a tradition  Cool

I've already got my entry in because I'm going to get double points for punctuality.

What's the cutoff?
Before qualifying starts?
or
Before Friday practice starts?

RE: Prediction Competition 2009
Sorry Yaaay, I totally missed that when it was in italics above, but got it when you put it in bold.

It sounds like picks don't carry over from the previous race.
Whereas on the Fantasy Racers site, they will if you don't log in and change anything.

RE: Prediction Competition 2009
Well, many just leave their picks but most change them each race. It's up to you, but this is more interactive because it's here and we get to see (and take the mickey) what's happening.

As soon as Friday practice starts (assuming it is a sociable hour) I post the entries and we can see who is dreaming or not.

I think you are confusing this thread with this thread.

Whichever, the more the merrier.
