Not sure if many people know about this new fantasy BTCC league:

Looks quite good with a top prize!

yep Ive signed up for it! (Team Nurdini) should be worth a laugh, although 250,000 doesn't buy you much, was surprised that Darren Turner was only valued @ 20,000 though! :eek:

Well, watchout field for SF Racing!!

I am quite happy overall. I have Turkington, Howell, Turner, Onslow-Cole and Blanckley.

But it is a shame at no time can you edit your team. Annoyingly it seemed that you had to use all your budget. I don't know if this has happened to anyone but in red text if you ain't spend your entire budget it says something like "You still have x with which you could buy y". In my case it suggested Blankley and it was like it wouldn't let me out until I got him. Apart from him though I rekon I have a strong team.

Lookout for the Marshall Brigade...the 19 cheapest drivers in the field.

I am also very interested to know what would be anyones top advice for newbies to the competition. Buy two or three expensive drivers or get lots of cheaper ones?

My theories on the two is with the former I rekon you have less talent but garanteed a large points haul and in the latter you have lots of lesser talent who may not individually get lots of points but together may ammass a large points haul.

But I think the best is to get an even mix. Two or three talent the standard of a Turner or Turkington and one or two the calibre of an Onslow Cole.

But that is just my view on the matter. :up:

Similar team to me, thought Gio was the best bet of the front runers.
Half the price of Neal, yet I can see Gio getting twice as many points as Neal.

I know some in a past era some viewed a request of mine as an assumption on my part I am asking them to do something they are in no way obliged to, and therefore at times either took exception to or ignored, but would anyone who have posted a team-name but not listed their drivers, pretty please mind stating who they managed to get into their team?

I would be very interested to know for instance Noah's Girl who you have in your team.

i've got 74 points, and didn't even make any predictions, hadn't spotted that part of the game, how many extra can you pick up for that?

Are you sure you did that badly? You did so well at the pickem so I can't believe it!!!!

Have you checked recently as they keep updating the scores.

Anyone know how many 'teams' are entered in the fantasy competition?

SEATFreak
3rd April 2007, 17:52
My team ThomppNation - 64 points

Same as mine (SF Racing).

I think it is a little disconcerting when it gives the top 10 and you at the bottom.

Joint 10th on 105 is my bro's in motorsport... and Doc's Cowboys. My score of 64 is rather pitiful and poor when compared to 105. Yet in reality I bet their is loads between me and the top 10.

The ougt to publish the entire league table.

Pickem? did i, i cant say i have checked that yet, and it must have been blind luck if i did do well ;)

Due to the announced exclusion of Darren Turner from the third round your score may have altered.

The amended race results are in - and all team points, including your race predictions, have been updated.


So far your score is 58.

Thats from an email i have just got, so i dont have 24 points its actually 58, the earlier email did say 24 though.

Now I'm far from a big headed person, but - Man you guys suck!!!... (except Mr Funks)

(now waiting for the email from Dunlop that says "Sorry ,we have mis-calculated your score...")

Long way to go old chap. Do a screengrab whilst you're top and I'm 3rd!

I'm on 90. I wish it would give you the entire league table though rather than just the top ten and your individual score.

The points seem to go up as they are worked out. My points are 88 the BTCC TROOPERS. It could of been more but M Jackson and D Turner both lost thier 3rd places. A bit **** if you ask me.

Thats very similar to my team only I have Chilton rather than Gio, which gave me some more cash to also have Bell and Leason as well!

CharlieJ

73 - reckon it would have been more if Mat Jackson wasn't excluded from the first race and Murray hadn't wrecked his car! But I'm quite happy... playing the long game :burnout:
