Welcome all to Week Twenty-Seven. We have a trio of events, with F1 at Hockenheim, Indycar in Edmonton, ALMS at Mosport, and no NASCAR! Please pick ten drivers/sport-cars, no more than seven in one event, in a comment on this post before 6 AM BST Friday 20th July (1 AM ET) (essentially late Thursday night).
Results – Top Tens
In the first couple of corners, Lorenzo took the lead off the fast-starting Pedrosa, and kept it to the end. Stoner had handling problems all weekend. He raced with the ultra-hard rear tyre, starting to climb the field later in the race before a diversion through the gravel knocked him back again. Spies slid down the order in the race for no explained reason (11th).
Kasey Kahne took his second victory of the year in New Hampshire, just managing to stay ahead of Hamlin, the latter having had to climb through the field after a strategy blunder. Stewart (12th), Kenseth (13th), Edwards (18th), and Ambrose (19th) all finished on the lead-lap.

Top congratulations to Chris on his third outright win of the season. There were also strong scores by Maverick and myself. All three of us picked the same trio of New Hampshire specialists. The MotoGP was a bit more mixed up than expected but all choices finished top-eleven, as indeed all the NASCAR selections made finished top-nineteen.
It was a fairly narrow range of scores on the week, resulting in no changes in overall order, although some of the gaps have closed up. We have a couple of three-event weeks coming up, then a few busy weeks with up to seven, except for week-thirty which is NASCAR-only at Watkins Glen.
