All

 

I have been thinking about what I wanted to do in for 2019. As I have already stated in the GTWT- Points round up, I am retiring that particular game as I feel the SC and VSC influence the result too much and turn it into a lottery. I have also decided I wont run the Cumulative version of Guess the Pole either, this is largely (this also applies to GTWT-P) because these were just slight variants on the original games which have run successfully for years and I now think it's time for me to be a little more creative. 

 

The first game is pretty straight forward (and is the smaller jump from the existing games), Guess the Fastest lap, it will run similar to Guess the Pole. You will guess a driver and a Time (before qualifying starts) and score points based on accuracy using the same rules as GTP. 

 

The second new game is the Qualifying Prediction League, this is a basically much more elaborate version of Guess the Pole but instead of guessing just the polesitter and Time, you will guess pole, Class B pole‡, Q2 fastest Non Qualifier (Q2FNQ) and Q1 fastest Non Qualifier (Q1FNQ). So for each race you will enter 4 times and 4 drivers. (‡ Class B pole for 2019 will be defined as the fastest Non- Mercedes, Ferrari or Red Bull). I am not however giving accuracy/rank or Correct Driver in each of these equal weight as getting pole right is still most important so there is a sliding scale as below

<--------------------Time offsets-------------------------->
Default   Modified Layout  New Track  Pole  CBP  Q2FNQ Q1FNQ

<-----Precision Rank ------->

9       2     -    -      -
10      1     -    -      -
<-----Driver Accuracy------>
Prev   Pole CBP  Q2FNQ Q1FNQ
Pos
0       18   12    10    8
1       13    8     7    6
2        9    6     5    4
3        6    4     3    3
4        4    3     2    2
5        3    2     1    1

For Pole Prev pos represents Front Row starts, for CBP it represents CBP front Rows (Top 2), 
For Q2FNQ and Q1FNQ it represents Fastest Non Qualifiers in each session respectively.
For all this applies over the last 5 races. 

These added together give your Race score, theoretically it is possible to score 25+25+18=68 for Pole, 20+20+12=52 for CBP, 15+15+10 for Q2FNQ and 12+12+8 for Q1FNQ, add all these together and you get 68+52+40+32=192 points maximum at a race. 

 

I will flesh out the rules a little further in the new year but just wanted to give you guys the chance to have a look over the Xmas period and let me now what you think....

 

Thanks

Sounds good Quadge! Great that you can run these games.

 

I game I have always thought would be good was a "Guess the 10th place" game. So you literally guess who will finish 10th.
