    BTCC Predictions 2018 - Thruxton

    Hello people!

    Welcome to the 2018 BTCC.net forum predictions championship. I know I said I'd stand down but hey, things have changed and I have a bit of time to run it so here we go.

    I've made some changes for 2018, which I'll explain as I go through it all.

    With a full grid of 32 cars, 18 previous race winners and 5 champions on the grid, it'll be a good season ahead.

    The basic format is the same as 2017, predicting the pole driver and results of the 3 races, however for 2018 it won't be the top 3 to predict but the top 5, but there is no Jack Sears Trophy part this season.

    So the format;

    Pole

    Race 1;
    1
    2
    3
    4
    5
    FL

    Race 2;
    1
    2
    3
    4
    5
    FL

    Race 3;
    Grid Draw
    Driver
    1
    2
    3
    4
    5
    FL

    The points scoring for 2018 is;

    Race 1 Pole; 12 Points
    Races 1, 2 & 3;

    P1 - 30 Points
    P2 - 26 Points
    P3 - 22 Points
    P4 - 20 Points
    P5 - 18 Points
    FL - 15 Points

    Reverse Grid number; 10 Points
    Reverse Grid Driver; 15 Points

    If you get both position and driver correct, it'll be 30 points.

    For race 1 only, if you predict Pole, Winner and FL correctly, you'll score 70 Points, compared to the 57 it would be. So if you predicted Turkington to get Pole, win R1 and FL, you'll score 70 points but it would be 42 Points if he got pole and the win but another driver got FL.

    Half points will be awarded if you guess a driver correctly but in the wrong position - aka you predict Rob Austin to finish P2 but he finishes P3, you'll score 11 Points for P3. The half points will be for the position the driver finishes in.

    The total possible score for a weekend will be 160 Points.

    The Croft and Brands GP events will both be double point events, I'm happy for suggestions for what to do for the double length race at Snetterton later in the year.

    If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask and I'll answer.

    Entries must be in by 9am of the Saturday of the race weekend - any entries after that but before qualifying will be accepted at my discresion but subject to a 10% points deduction as a late entry ballast. Anything entered after the start of qualifying won't be accepted.

    Good luck all!

    Hello ladies and gentleman and maybe a random soft tyre...

    Welcome to the announcement of the results from the Thruxton round of the 2018 Predictions Championship.

    The Hampshire speedbowl saw Matt Neal claim his first victory of 2018, while Josh Cook and Adam Morgan both became 2 time winners, with the latter taking a slender 1 point lead away from Thruxton.

    Who top scored for the forumers at Thruxton though?

    1. Cari Lou - 112 Points
    2. VanillaAstra - 102 Points
    3. Prm666 - 100 Points
    4. PiesJohn13 - 97 Points
    5. Tomabtccfan - 95 Points
    6. Motormouth_33 - 89 Points
    7. BTCCROCKS - 84 Points
    8. Spanneredmonkey - 82 Points
    9. Clio172ron - 70 Points
    10. Swag - 61 Points


    So it is Cari Lou who top scored at Thruxton, with VanillaAstra and Prm666 close behind, while a big shout out to PiesJohn13 who scored 97 points on his first outing of the season.

    How have the Thruxton results affected the Championship standings?

    1. Prm666 - 260 Points
    2. VanillaAstra - 254 Points
    3. Cari Lou - 245 Points
    4. Motormouth_33 - 236 Points
    5. Clio172ron - 236 Points
    6. Tomabtccfan - 206 Points
    7. BTCCROCKS - 181 Points
    8. Spanneredmonkey - 164 Points
    9. Swag - 164 Points
    10. PiesJohn13 - 97 Points


    So its Prm666 who leaves Thruxton top of the standings, with VanillaAstra and Cari Lou close behind, Cari Lou closing the gap with the Thruxton results. With plenty of points available every weekend, its all to play for still.

    The Oulton Park thread will open very soon.

    Cheers guys!
