You can leave the league under "other" -> "All options", that should delete one team.

That website seems like a cluster**** on my IPhone. I’ve somehow managed to get a team and I can select all the drivers I want but I’m not able to submit. Seems like change for the sake of change. :(

I would not call this our league, yet. It appears to be the general Indycar league. They do not yet have commissioner leagues setup for Indycar.

 

While awkward now, I think fantrax will work out better in the long run.

They mentioned that perhaps NBC could be persuaded to un-geo-block... but they were optimistically speculating.

 

It's not necessarily NBC who is geoblocking, it could be the Canadian side. Our media rules and regulations are very convoluted.

The technology partnership will see the companies collaboratively design and develop ‘MindDrive,’ the next generation of safety and performance platforms tailored for motorsport. Using MindMaze’s award-winning brain-sensing technology, the product will be capable of capturing and transmitting key neural signatures from the driver to a track-side medical team in real-time in the event of an incident. The technology will also enable McLaren Racing to gather data and insight on overall driver safety and performance. Together, McLaren Racing and MindMaze will rigorously test MindDrive’s functionality during the team’s preparations for the world-famous racing event in May.

It is NBCSN who is geoblocking, because in my case it does not allow me to buy the golden pass from our country (Slovakia), so there is no standard possibility to watch Indycar this season, which is beyond my comprehension why I cannot stream qualifications and races from an official source as the country is without any medial indycar coverage. This is just lost profit because of geo-blocking for the series for no gain in my opinion  :mad:

Yes, the fact we know seem to have two teams has confused the hell out of me. No doubt the team NOT in our league will do fine while the other will bomb.

 

Make sure, if you do end up with this second team, that you pick the drivers for that as well, as it doesn't seem to carry over what you may have selected for your original team - I note lots of people still have 100 to spend, so obviously have not selected drivers as yet.

Maybe those with only one team simply didn't enter the general league?

There is only a general league now. To see what we are looking forward to, look at the NASCAR league. There are commissioner league options that Indycar fantasy does not currently have.

Just to confirm: average race speed is in freedom units and not in metric, right?

Pretty safe to assume freedom units. Although, anything with hours in the unit is also not metric.

Don't fall for it.  She may SAY she is a hottie in Santa Monica, but she is really a grandmother of nine in Skykomish, WA.  And she is charging you $5 a minute.

So I can get 4 minutes for the price of Max Chilton - Sounds fair value to me.

So I suppose this means RC Enerson is out of the frame at Carlin, after having looked like he had a chance?

I feel a bit rusty with the inside info when picking our teams. Was it:

 

  • Don't pick Will power when the current day ends in 'Y'?
  • Can we pick Ferrucci (Boo, Hiss) or is he in the Autosport Sin Bin?

Pulling that ratty old notepad from my desk drawer, I have:

- Always pick Scott Dixon
- Do not pick Scott Dixon and Will Power
- In the event you pick Will Power, reread Rules 1 and 2
- If you can pick all three Penske drivers, do it
- Do not change your picks after qualifying
- Do not make your picks using data from practice
- Only follow trends in results if they obey the Second Law of Thermodynamics (i.e. tendency for disorder; "The previous year's champion always wins Phoenix," implies a different result every year, "Scott Dixon slays everyone at Mid-Ohio," implies the same result every year)
- One out of my four picks will be out of the race in Turn 1 50% of the time
- Max Chilton is always overvalued
- Do not pick Sato unless you're desperate, or nothing bizarre has happened for a few races
- For your average speed calculation, perform a one-way ANOVA on the numbers from the back of your last three fortune cookies, cube the resulting F ratio, and enter that value to the first three decimal places

Pretty much sums it up.

I never listened to the tarot, but it seems a much simpler methodology than the fortune cookie, so maybe I'll do that instead this year. :p
