****IMPORTANT PLEASE READ********

WELCOME TO THE FINAL GTG ROUND OF THE YEAR.........

Once again we are about to complete another year of GTG - and soon we will have crowned a NEW GTG Champion - who will take his/her place among GTG's greats - Merlin (1999), CrushedDreams (2000), Pit Babe (2001), Mikael (2002) and Kismet (2003).

And what a race we have. For the first time ever - we go into the final round of the season with a 3 way tie for the No.1!!!!!!!! Add to that there another dozen within 10 points of the lead and dozens more with a chance to win the GTG crown.

The amazing fullcourseyellow sits atop of the table with the legendery Jimino and the speedy VincenzoSA - all battling for that No.1 position. Just today a huge amount of money has been placed on Punisher6 to take the crown, but can DeatMasteR of the fast finishing G8R_Sackmasters steal his thunder? What about perrenial favourite Viss1 - surely this year is his year?!? Or can the mercurial New Zealender Zawed sneak up and take the prize. Maybe the tough guys - scheivlak, Apex and race addicted can take a much deserved win here to bolster them in the championship - or will Ric Bol GO GO GO all the way to the top? One thing is for sure - whether its Barty, slix , madman Jonas A , the supremo 130R or gaming kingpin Makarias - or some one creeping up from lower down the table - this final GTG round is a cliffhanger!!!!

NOW HERE IS THE IMPORTANT PART - BECAUSE THE TOP CONTENDERS ARE SO CLOSE - WE NEED TO HAVE A TIE BREAKER INCASE WE HAVE A PHOTO FINISH.

SO I NEED EVERYONE TO SEND ME VIA PM (OR YOU CAN POST IT HERE WITH YOUR GUESSES) - YOUR ANSWER TO THE FOLLOWING......


WHAT WILL BE THE GAP IN FINAL QUALIFYING BETWEEN JUAN PABLO MONTOYA AND RALF SCHUMACHER - CORRECT TO THREE DECIMAL PLACES (ie. 3.452 seconds or 0.029 seconds etc). PLEASE SEND THIS OR POST THIS BEFORE FRIDAY FREE PRACTICE.

Most of you know the rules - but i'll repeat them here again...

GUESS THE GRID 2004 CHAMPIONSHIP


ROUND 18 - GUESS THE GRID IN BRAZIL


Here are the Rules and Scoring system for Round 18:

1. List your guess of the top 10 qualifiers (on Saturday) at Interlagos.

2. Please follow the below instructions for the way in which to post your guesses.

How to place your guesses:

When posting your guesses please post them in the following manner - put your user name and then your selections as follows (these are examples only)

gerry nassar mont/coul/raik/butt/rsch/trul/webb/msch/fisi
garth_b msch/raik/rsch/barr/mont/alon/butt/fisi/sato/klei

Please do it in this way so that Garth_b can calculate the scores quicker. Make sure that you use only the first FOUR LETTERS in the drivers SURNAME . For the Schumacher brothers - you can type them as MSCH and RSCH .

3. Post your guesses anytime before Full Field Friday First Practice(FFFP) . You can change your guesses as many time as you like as long as its done before Friday First practice. Any posts or changes made after FRIDAY first practice will be INVALID! Please get them in by Full Field Friday First Practice (FFFP) at the latest as it makes it easier for Garth to calculate the scores. Late entries made on the friday will have to receive approval from Garth and myself to be allowed in the game. So you will have to plead with us for mercy - we may even accept bribes.;) Entries received after PRE QUALIFYING ON FRIDAY will not be accepted.

4. Scores will be calculated as follows:

* + 3 points for being spot on . (ie. Selecting Coulthard in 4th and he actually qualifies 4th)

* + 2 points for being one position away from where the driver actually qualifies (ie. Selecting Michael Schumacher in 3rd and he qualifies either 2nd or 4th)

* + 1 point for having a driver you selected qualifying anywhere in the top 10 (not spot on or one away) ie. Selecting Jenson Button 5th but he qualifies 9th

* + 5 points if you manage to correctly pick all positions in the top 10. (Note – no one has done this in the last 3 years)

AND JUST TO CLARIFY some confusion - for example if you pick Sato 10th and he qualifies 11th you get 2 points, ie 1 position away. The fact that he is out of the top 10 makes you lose no points because you picked him one away at 10th.

5. The grid the result will be calculated on is that which is announced by the FIA immediately after saturday qualifying. Therefore any subsequent penalties will not be taken into account.

6. If a driver you selected is replaced during qualifying – his replacement will be substituted in his place in your guesses unless you change it before Full Field Friday First Practice.

7. Results will be calculated soon after Qualifying is completed. Look out for a results thread to be posted by garth_b. This thread will feature the round’s results, a championship table, commentary and links to beautifully designed league tables by garth_b. The results thread can then be used as a results discussion thread by you all.

If you have any questions - PM me and I'll respond as soon as I can.

PLEASE NOTE: If a driver you choose unable to qualify and race for whatever reason - you can ammend your selections as long as it is before Friday First Practice. If you dont get a chance to ammend your guesses - then we will calculate your score based on whowever replaces him


Here are my Guesses:

gerry nassar butt/barr/msch/sato/raik/mont/coul/rsch/alon/vill/

Good Luck! :up: :D


PLEASE NOTE : TRULLI IS REPLACING PANIS AT TOYOTA FOR THE RACE AND ZONTA RETURNS.


Last but not least - thanks to the brilliance that is Garth B for all his scoring for this game and all the other games! You are a legend! :up:
