Before I get into the results I would like to thank Gerry for hosting this again this year for the 8th consecutive year. Much more stamina than I have managed. I would like to also thank the 90+ people who looked in on this game and, inparticular, the more than 30 regular players. The numbers have dropped off from the heady days of more than 300 vistors and regular players of up to 100. I hope you have all enjoyed playing and I hope to see you back here next year. Feel free to spread the word and get the number of players up. Although I have to say it makes it quite easy when there are only 40 or so players each week.

No Renaults in the top ten and a couple of Red Bulls didn't stop this round from being a respectable score. Certainly there are 9 players that are quite happy that Coulthard managed to scrape into the top ten for the second race in succession. On to the results for this round. GTG veteran THE HUMAN MAN, with 20 points grabbed the final podium of the year, on the second step for the second race in a row is fisichella_2001, while third is a fiveway tie between jomaizta, Juan Kerr, Kooper, tkulla and the well performing new comer wim_jtd who has been at or near the podium every race since starting 4 races ago. Could be one to watch next season.

I would like to welcome our final newcomer of the season Raj. Hope to see you back as a regular next year.

The Average Grid had a storming finish with a very respactable 18 for 3rd overall along with the 5 others named above. WDC became boringly consistent with its picks towards the end and ended up with 15 for this round. While Superstat, also boringly consistent for much of the year, eeked out another point, again, to score 16.

On to the final result for the season. Who will it be that joins Merlin, Crushed Dreams, Pit Babe, Mikael, Kismet, Punisher6, austin? Who will shays pass his crown to?





It has been a bit of a see-saw ride with the lead looking unassailable in the middle of the season, then a comeback making it look like it would end up quite close.






In the end our fellow gamemaster extended his lead to 10 points and, on behalf of Gerry Nassar, I declare Makarias GTG World Champion for 2007. paranoik0 grimly held on to second spot. With a burst at the end and narrowly missing second spot is fisichella_2001 in third. The robot entries of Average Grid on 267 Squeeking into fourth while SuperStat is on 251 and WDC on 236.

Biggest mover this round was anres1 climbing 5 spots to finish 33rd=.

Thanks to garth and gerry for running this comp! It's still the biggest one in the forum, so I really value this title above anything previous I've won. :up:
I have to say that paranoik0 :up: managed to scare me quite a bit prior to this final round, but in the end my lead was enough.
At some point my lead was big enough to claim the title there and then, if this game only had had a 107% rule...

Congrats to Makarius - staying on top for that long is very tough - impressive work.

And I'd like to thank Gerry and Garth too - I know it's a lot of work to put this together.

Can't wait til next year - I'm hoping to step up my game.  ;)

Thoroughly enjoyed it and always have.

And, I enjoy it notwithstanding my pitiful showing this last race and overall lacklustre showing in general. Yikes - I need to take more chances............ :D

See you in 140 days!

Thanks for the kind words guys. We enjoy running the game. :up:

Again I'd like to thank Garth for all his work. :clap: Believe it or not I was scoring some of the rounds by hand back in 2000 till Garth stepped in and saved the day :p Back then as Gartj said - we would start the seasons with 300 or more players - they were crazy times!! :eek:

Congratulations Makarias :clap: You just steamrolled the competition much like those dominant Schumacher seasons. Some players got close - but you kept the pressure on round after round. Well done! You are the cornetstones of the RC Bets and Games forum and It is our honour to induct you into our hall of champions...

1999 Merlin
2000 CrushedDreams
2001 Pit Babe
2002 Mikael
2003 Kismet
2004 Punisher6
2005 austin
2006 shays
2006 Makarias

Look forward to seeing all of you and more next season when Makarias aims to become the first double champion. :wave:
