So we save the best round for last. The highest score and the highest average was acheived this round, at a brand new circuit to boot! I thought I would check back on the last few years to see how the scoring compared to previous years. I had to go back to 2003 to find a year where the scoring was so low and that year there was only 16 races. Over the last 5 years a total score of 200 would have been lucky to get you into the top 50 let alone this years effort of a top 10 finish. It just shows how hard it has been to pick the grids. Great to have had such an unpredictable year from that point of view. Although Button, in hindsight, pretty much had the title wrapped up by mid season. Lets hope for another interesting season next year with all the new teams on board and, hopefully, the extra races.

This round was won by dank with an impressive 22 points. Second went to D82, while third was a two way tie between aisiai and Ghostrider. We have 2 new players this round the best of which was halifaxf1fan. A big welcome to the new players and I hope to see you back next year. Two BOT players were average this round. SuperStat went 1 better than last round with a score of 11. While WDC was on average with 11. AverageGrid had a better than average score with 15.

Now for the bit you have all been waiting for. dank made a late charge for the lead with the stunning final round score of 22. However that wasn't quite enough to take out the competion and I declare Costaz as the GTG champion for 2009. Like BrawnF1 leading from the start and taking out the championship in the first year in the competion. Second ended up as a two way tie between fullcourseyellow and final round winner dank. Largest mover this round was D82 climbing 8 places to finish 26th equal. The BOT players ended up with 185 for WDC which would be 23rd in the competion. Superstat finished with 199 for 10th equal while AverageGrid finished on 211 and a share of 2nd.

Yeaaaah, go me!

My second victory for the season, both in the qualifying games! :)
(I don't seem to have the same results in the Race games, perhaps I am the Trulli of the Atlas games?)

It was fun to play, and I have to admit that with the so-close grids this year, it was more a matter of luck and gamble to get things right - or, as I would prefer to describe it, my educated guesses...

Many thanks to garth_b for running the game, and well done to all participants, I'll see you all next year, to defend my trophy :wave:
