TMRG 2011 Week 14

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  
DTM  826 23 35·9 1012 81·6%
MotoGP  1559 40 39·0 1625 95·9%
Indycar  1201 36 33·4 1491 80·5%
NASCAR  655 21 31·2 925 70·8%
Total  4241 120 35·3 5053 83·9%

Had everyone chosen 3-3-2-2 splits, the maximum would have been 430*12 = 5160, of which 4241 is 82·2%.

That is quite a remarkable efficiency for MotoGP, with 38 of the 40 picks giving top-five scores, and 32 of those being podiums. DTM usually has more predictable results, but qualification at Hockenheim was jumbled up by some incidents.

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

  Total Picks Average  Maximum    Efficiency  
Formula 1  5874 171 34·4 6604 88·9%
MotoGP  5431 156 34·8 6117 88·8%
DTM  826 23 35·9 1012 81·6%
Sportscars  3613 108 33·5 4452 81·2%
Indycar  5343 184 29·0 7387 72·3%
NASCAR  9234 451 20·5 16890 54·7%

Below is shown how many points the winners have been getting and 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
14    Sean    4    403    430    93·7%    NC IRL(w) MotoGP DTM

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.
