Welcome to the season finale! Points are remaining the same as Rockingham and Silverstone plus there is a bonus round that I will explain at the end.
The BTCC predictions for 2016 is back, with myself (vanilla_astra) taking over the reigns from Lambert1 for the year.
The concept is this, firstly you will have to pick the driver who you think will qualifying on Pole Position for Sunday's 1st race, you then pick the drivers you will think will finish 1st 2nd 3rd in the first two races and then the driver who you think the reverse pole sitter will be plus the grid switch between 6 and 10, then 1st 2nd 3rd for the third and final race. Lastly the driver you think will achieve fastest lap during the three races.
New for 2016 is the addition of the top JST runner for each race - there are five eligible drivers, with the loss of Chris Smiley and Dan Lloyd from the grid.
And you set it up like this;
In terms of scoring here's how my game works:
You get 10 points if you predict Pole Position for Race 1 correctly
You get 8 points if you predict a driver to finish in the correct position.
You get 4 points if you predict a driver in an incorrect position but he finishes in the top 3.
You get 40 points if you predict the Top 3 drivers in the correct positions.
You get 20 points if you predict reverse pole for Race 3 correct.
You get 10 points for correctly predicting the grid switch number for the reverse grid draw.
You get 6 points if you predict Fastest Lap setter of the 3 Races correctly
You get 4 points for each correct JST finisher per race.
The Brands Hatch GP Bonus Round;
8 drivers are in contention for the title, but can you correctly predict the top 3 come the end of round 30?
50 Points are on offer if you correctly predict the top 3.
Correctly predict the Champion; 20 points
Correctly predict runner up; 10 points
Correctly predict P3; 5 points
For example - if you predicted:
1. Sam Tordoff
2. Gordon Shedden
3. Matt Neal
and at the end of round 30, it was that, that is 50 points, but if it ended up as
1. Gordon Shedden
2. Sam Tordoff
3. Matt Neal
You'd get the 5 points for Matt Neal only. These points get added on to the race prediction points as well.
Entries need to be in by 9am on the Saturday of the event, after that your entry won't be scored nor entered, and the results will be up by the following Sunday.
