    BTCC Forum Predictions 2017: Knockhill

    Hello forumers!

    Welcome to the seventh round of the 2017 BTCC Forum Predictions Championship, with your host vanilla_astra. This thread covers the trip north to Scotland, and the Knockhill circuit. I know it is live early, I am away for Snetterton and the week after, so figured it would be better to go live now so I don't forget.

    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. New for 2017 is the prediction of the fastest lap setter of each race, instead of the fastest lap of the day.

    The Jack Sears Trophy section remains, with 5 drivers able to win this category.

    New for this weekend is the option round - bit like the drivers having to choose a race to run the option tyres, everyone can now choose one race out of the three where you predict the top 3, but if your drivers finish inside the top 5, you'll score the incorrect position points for it.

    Whichever race you choose at Snetterton, if you use it again here then - if this remains - you can't reuse it during the final 3 events.

    For example;

    1. Mat Jackson
    2. Rob Austin
    3. Matt Neal

    That is your prediction - but the actual result is;

    1. Colin Turkington
    2. Rob Austin
    3. Ash Sutton
    4. Mat Jackson
    5. Matt Neal

    You'd score 10 Points for Austin in the correct spot and 5 each for Mat J and Matt Neal.

    To highlight which race you'd like to choose - please either highlight the race or put it in italics. This will run for Snetterton and Knockhill as a test, and will be evaluated after Knockhill. Any questions, please ask.

    And you set it up like this;

    Pole:

    Race 1
    1st:
    2nd:
    3rd:
    Fastest Lap:

    JST winner:

    Race 2
    1st:
    2nd:
    3rd:
    Fastest Lap:

    JST Winner:

    Grid Switch:
    Reverse Pole:

    Race 3
    1st:
    2nd:
    3rd:
    Fastest Lap:

    JST Winner:

    In terms of scoring here's how my game works:

    You get 20 points if you predict Pole Position for Race 1 correctly
    You get 10 points if you predict a driver to finish in the correct position.
    You get 5 points if you predict a driver in an incorrect position but he finishes in the top 3.
    You get 50 points if you predict the Top 3 drivers in the correct positions.
    You get 15 points if you predict reverse pole for Race 3 correct.
    You get 15 points for correctly predicting the grid switch number for the reverse grid draw.
    You get 5 points if you predict Fastest Lap of each race correctly.
    You get 5 points for each correct JST finisher per race.

    Entries close at 9am of the Saturday - any recieved after this will not be entered. Any changes to entries must be cleared with me unless its news on BTCC.net (aka driver out of the weekend, force majeure etc).

    Results will be up by the following Sunday.

    Good luck one and all!

    Hi guys,

    Just a quick one. IF anyone enters a prediction after the 9am cutoff, I will only accept it if it is a full, clean copy and paste from a previous round, and you accept a 10% points deduction as a late entry 'ballast'. Any fresh entries will not be accepted, or if they are entered after the end of the BTCC qualifying session.

    Thanks!

    Hello Electabuzz, Muk and Forumers!

    I think we can safely say that Knockhill was a turn up for the books with JP getting up the front for the first time this season.

    As well as JP taking his first win of the season, Ash Sutton took win number 5 and TIngram took his third win of the season. However, with a trio of P3 finishes, its Colin Turkington who leads the Championship heading into the Northamptonshire double header.

    In the most important Championship, who top scored from Knockhill?

    1. Vanilla_Astra - 40 Points
    2. Clio172ron - 40 Points
    3. BTCCROCKS - 40 Points
    4. SpanneredMonkey - 30 Points
    5. G.Mac - 25 Points
    6. Cari Lou - 10 Points
    7. Motormouth_33 - 10 Points


    So its Vanilla_Astra who leads a trio of entrants with 40 points, helped in part by choosing the option race for race 1.

    The overall Championship standings are as follows;

    1. Clio172ron - 305 Points
    2. G.Mac - 300 Points
    3. Vanilla_Astra - 280 Points
    4. BTCCROCKS - 280 Points
    5. SpanneredMonkey - 275 Points
    6. Klaus - 255 Points
    7. JamesJDavis - 190 Points
    8. ManorBARC - 155 Points
    9. CharlieJ - 135 Points
    10. Motormouth_33 - 130 Points
    11. Elec-Tech - 125 Points
    12. Cari Lou - 125 Points
    13. Swag - 75 Points
    14. Jake - 25 Points


    So heading to Rockingham, it is Clio172ron who leads the way from G.Mac, with the top 5 covered by 30 points.

    The Rockingham thread will go live very soon, and this will be the first round with an update to option races, so you know what races you have used and must use at least once.

    Cheers!
