WELCOME TO THE 2013 MOTOR RACING GAME!
WEEK 0 (zero)
Yes, week zero. That seems strange but this is my first attempt at running the game this year, and with the only race in the next three weeks being the WRC Monte Carlo Rally this coming weekend, it seemed a good idea to have a practice run. So please treat this as a real week even though the results won’t count - we’ll actually start with Rally Sweden as week 1.
There will be a couple of changes this year.
First, to try and ease the scoring burden, you’ll need to go to an external website (www.roadracetracks.com/motorracinggame.shtml) to enter your picks. Sorry if this is inconvenient, but it will allow for automated scoring. Also you’ll need a PIN (and maybe a user-id) to make your entries – please e-mail me (from here, or from the external website) your preferred user-id and PIN.
Second, the minimum score percentage for the first four weeks will be 99, 96, 93, then 90% onward.
Finally, please be kind if there’s not the same kind of flair in this year’s post – I’m based in the U.S. and coverage for many of the series is seriously lacking (except of course NASCAR), so I will not be posting the same level of pre and post race commentary as Sebastian was. However I encourage any and all participants to post comments, for the benefit of all, on what went on in the various races as the year progresses.
To reiterate this weeks events:
WRC Monte Carlo Rally
