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.
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.
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.)

Apologies for truncating people’s names for width reasons. 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.
