    BTCC Predictions 2018 - Rockingham

    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, 19 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;
    Reverse grid draw;
    Reverse Grid Pole;
    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 Brands GP events will be double point events.

    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, gentleman and the annoying Regirock...

    Well, Rockingham didn't disappont on its final time as a BTCC venue, who'd have predicted that at the start of the season we'd have had 5 new winners of which none have been Dan Cammish?
    After wins for Adam Morgan, Ash Sutton and Chris Smiley - and yet another 27th to 3rd for TIngram, its Colin Turkington who leads the way heading to Knockhill, an RWD circuit. Could the 'Hill be a deciding factor in the Championship battle, will JP come into play once again?

    Anyway, how did the forumers get on with their Rockingham predictions?

    1. SpanneredMonkey - 154 Points
    2. Tomabigbtccfan - 124 Points
    3. Motormouth_33 - 119 Points
    4. Clio172ron - 119 Points
    5. Vanilla_Astra - 118 Points
    6. BTCCROCKS - 116 Points
    7. Prm666 - 85 Points
    8. Cari Lou - 37 Points


    So its SpanneredMonkey who leaves Rockingham as the top scorer for the weekend, with Tomabigbtccfan and Motormouth_33 chasing behind.

    With the overall standings, how have the 3 Rockingham races affected the standings?

    1. Clio172ron - 832 Points
    2. Motormouth_33 - 751 Points
    3. BTCCROCKS - 735 Points
    4. Tomabigbtccfan - 734 Points
    5. Prm666 - 709 Points
    6. SpanneredMonkey - 685 Points
    7. Vanilla_Astra - 685 Points
    8. Cari Lou - 556 Points
    9. Swag - 406 Points
    10. PiesJohn13 - 97 Points


    So it is Clio172ron who continues to lead the way, using the disappointment of 2017 to fuel a stronger charge in 2018? With an 81 point gap at the top of the standings, things could be looking good. With 640 points left to play for over the final 3 race weekends at Knockhill, Silverstone and the double points Brands GP finale, nearly all of the entrants can still be crowned Champion.

    Thank you once again for all your support and interest, it means the world to me that people enjoy this and hopefully adds something different to a race weekend.

    The Knockhill thread will open very soon.

    Cheers!
