TMRG 2011 Week 12

The increased number of competitors challenges my theme-width. If you click here, an 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  2049 57 35·9 2212 92·6%
Indycar  982 41 24·0 1707 57·6%
ALMS  1105 27 40·9 1202 91·9%
NASCAR  220 15 14·7 680 32·4%
Total  4356 140 31·1 5801 75·1%

Had everyone chosen 3-3-2-2 splits, the maximum would have been 430*14 = 6020, of which 4356 is 72·4%.

(Despite the lowest efficiency for any event this season, Talladega was not the erratic cull of favourites that NASCAR restrictor races usually are. Only three of the usual suspects had terrible results, Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth, and Juan Pablo Montoya, which is about typical for a standard Sprint Cup event, but they constituted eight of the fifteen picks made.)

Below are the accumulative tables. ‘Sportscars’ includes ALMS, LMS, ILMC and Le Mans (but not Daytona). There have been eight NASCAR events (three NASCAR-only weeks), three events each for sportscars, F1 and Indycar, and two events for MotoGP.

  Total Picks Average  Maximum    Efficiency  
Formula 1  5874 171 34·4 6604 88·9%
MotoGP  3872 116 33·4 4492 86·2%
Sportscars  3613 108 33·5 4452 81·6%
Indycar  4142 148 28·0 5896 70·3%
NASCAR  8579 430 20·0 15965 53·7%

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 achieved 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
12    Sean    4    356    430    82·8%    NC(p) IRL F1 ALMS

Apologies for truncating people’s names for width reasons. (w) signals a race for which I consider the result was significantly 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.
