    ok.. here are the rules..

    you may pick 8 drivers.. you rank them from 1 to 8

    the rankings must be in by Friday at 11:30 PM (qualifying)..

    each race, you will earn points based off the drivers current standing in the drivers champoinship times weight you gave them..

    so, for example:

    if you ranked micheal Schumacher 1st, and he came 1st, you recieve 10 points (10 points x 1st ranking), if he came 2nd you recieve 6 points (6 points x 1st ranking)..

    if you ranked Micheal 2nd, and he came 1st, you recieve 20 points(10 points x 2nd ranking)..

    the person with THE FEWEST points at the end of the season is the winner.

    If you join the pool after the first race, you start with equal points to the person in LAST PLACEin the pool at the time you join (ie the person with the MOST points).

    So if I rank someone last and they come in first then I get 80 points?

    I will gladly participate....
    but the scoring system need to be changed.
    In your example if you ranked Michael 1st and he came in second you would get less points then if he came in first.....and if the person with the lowest score wins, then that means it would be better if he doesn;t come where you predict him.

    ........I propose nPoints=ABS(nPredictedPlace-nActualPlace);

    If the fewest points wins, then everyone would choose drivers that almost never finish or finish at the bottom.

    It's very feasible to pick 8 drivers that all end up with zero points at the end of the season.

    Jeff Gordon
    Dick Trickle
    Ward Burton
    Dale Earnhardt Jr


    The one good thing about all the NASCAR coverage on Speedvision now is that I know Dick Trickle is'nt an STD.

    I'm being a little harsh when I say "I hate F1" but'I don't like it very much.

    Drag racing and rally racing are my favorite. Nascar I can definetly watch.

    NASCAR: Top Story
    Lead Poisoning
    The autopsy on Dale Earnhardt confirmed it wasn't the crash that killed him but rather the deteriorating lead plate that was grafted on to his right foot.
    (the bungee cord inserted into his left arm appeared to constrict blood flow as well).

    2.Rubens B

    i thought this was gonna be about chemistry. but i read it anyways!
    your scoring system needs to be fixed since it makes no sense/confusing

    feel the love!

    Hey Balzz!, did you get your tickets for the Montreal race?

    I tried getting section 33 seats but there all sold out.

    I have to settle for section 31, I gues that's not too bad but it's not as good. Oh well...

    Did you find a hotel yet?

    Sweet! <----- about the tickets. The hotel you're talking about is by the highway and west of down town right. I think I'll go with the one I had last year: it's north west of downtown near the highway on Lacordaire. 5 min. drive to the subway and 15min. by subway to downtown. How much are the rooms you reserved?

    Rickardo Belmiro de la Cruz...
    <----can't wait till June! ...first race this weekend right?
  21. Balzz

    Balzz TRIBE Member

    Rooms are 290/night. I'm glad I got these...my alternative was 410/night at Delta downtown.

    Hell yeah - Oz GP this weekend! Speedvision is carrying Friday practice sessions LIVE! :eek:

    Well I ordered my tix on Friday and sec. 31 was sold out too, but wait...
    ...there has been a cancelation in sec. 33! :eek:

    My seats are; the right grandstand if you're facing the front in the middle row. :)

    Perfect!, sometimes it's better to wait...
