TMRG 2011 Week 11

The increased number of competitors challenges my theme-width. If you click here, a larger image-version of the table will appear in a new window (you might want to try full-screen (F11) on that).

Below is this week’s average and efficiency table. Dividing the Total of points scored by all players by the number of Picks made by all players gives the Average scored for the picks of that event. The Maximum is reached by working out the perfect score for each player in that series, 50 for one pick, 90 for two picks, 125 for three, et cetera, and adding all these up. The Efficiency is what percentage the Total is of this Maximum.

  Total Picks Average  Maximum    Efficiency  
Formula 1  1463 43 34·0 1719 85·1%
Indycar  1740 55 31·6 2121 82·0%
NASCAR  551 32 17·2 1344 41·0%
Total  3754 130 28·9 5184 72·4%

Had everyone chosen 4-3-3 splits, the maximum would have been 407*13 = 5291, of which 3754 is 71·0%.

Below are the accumulative tables. ‘Sportscars’ includes ALMS, LMS, ILMC and Le Mans (but not Daytona). There have been seven NASCAR events (three NASCAR-only weeks), and two events each for sportscars, MotoGP, F1 and Indycar. It looks like the double-file restarts in Indycar are going to make a habit of slicing out some of the favourites making it less predictable than last season. NASCAR is a bugger to call at the best of times, but this year even races that would have been expected to provide more regular results have often provided mixed up standings.

  Total Picks Average  Maximum    Efficiency  
Formula 1  3825 114 33·6 4392 87·1%
MotoGP  3872 116 33·4 4492 86·2%
Sportscars  2508 81 31·0 3250 77·2%
Indycar  3160 107 29·5 4189 75·4%
NASCAR  8359 415 20·1 15285 54·7%

We have had a lot of mixed up weeks this season compared to the equivalent part of the first season of Patrick’s competition. I thought it would be interesting to look at how many points the winners have been getting and to look at their efficiencies. The efficiencies are the percentage of points the winner of that week got of the maximum points available.

In a one-event week, picking the top-seven would give 241 points. In a three-event week, picking the top-three for two events and the top-four for the other would give 407 points. Of course, only a 4-3-3 split would give that opportunity. For example, a 5-4-1 split could only ever garner up to 394 points (96·8%). No one this year (so far) or last year has ever acheived a maximum score, either for the best split or the split they chose.

(I am not looking to grade wins as winning is winning, with some weeks being more predictable than others.)

1    Sbun    1    224    241    93·0%    Daytona 24
4    James    1    134    241    55·6%    NC(p)
5    Jackie    1    211    241    61·4%    NC
6    SG    1    148    241    87·6%    NC
8    Ryan    3    359    407    88·2%    NC Moto ILMC
9    Sean    3    352    407    86·5%    NC IRL F1
10    Sean    3    311    407    76·4%    NC Moto(w) LMS
11    TCC    3    338    407    83·0%    NC IRL F1

Apologies for truncating people’s names for width reasons. (w) signals a race that I consider the result was significently effected by rain. (p) marks a NASCAR restrictor-plate race.

I seem to have lost the option to disable comments. Would you please leave any feedback over on Patrick’s game-posts, as this is only intended as an extension of those.
