TMRG 2011 Week 24

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).

(My entirely unofficial policy on tied scores, purely for the purpose of column-ordering (officially a tie is a tie), is first countback, then who posted their entry first. Rubbergoat, The Speedgeek and Ryan tied for fifth. Ryan did less well on countback, but the other two had to be separated on time of entry. With the tie for ninth, Startledbunny had a fifth-place score that Felipe did not.)

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  
F1  1645 51 32·3 1963 83·8%
ALMS  835 20 41·8 900 92·8%
Indycar  1048 38 27·6 1558 67·3%
NASCAR  318 11 28·9 477 66·7%
Total  3846 120 32·1 4898 78·5%

Had everyone chosen 3-3-2-2 splits, the maximum would have been 430*12 = 5160, of which 3846 is 74·5%.

Below are the accumulative tables. ‘Sportscars’ includes ALMS, LMS, ILMC and Le Mans (but not Daytona).

  Total Picks Average  Maximum    Efficiency  
MotoGP  13298 378 35·2 14957 88·9%
Formula 1  16834 501 33·6 19044 88·4%
DTM  5771 176 32·8 7144 80·8%
Sportscars  8087 244 33·1 9970 81·1%
Indycar  10298 369 27·9 14842 69·4%
NASCAR  12664 616 20·6 23866 53·1%

Formula One drops behind DTM, with Button’s wheel problem enough to cause this.

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.)

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. (r) marks a NASCAR road-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.
