The time goes fast. I still remember the final race of the 2007 season back in October. Bunch of us who played the game for the entire season (or bigger part of it) happened to be in Hong Kong that time (pure coincidence but it was probably meant to be ). We had a blast of an late evening, beer destroyed one laptop, Hamilton destroyed his chances for title, fatfish walked away with a bottle of MUMM, rest of us left with major headache.
Now it is time to begin again. The game actually started back in December with 2008 Driver Champion predictions. It is not too late to join, the cut off date is March 13, 2008.
You can join the game anytime after that as well by simply predicting the results of any race. But remember that the correct title winner prediction ads 25 points to the final points tally at the end of the season. So if you haven’t done so yet, make your prediction for the 2008 Formula 1 Driver Champion click here. If you have made your prediction but changed your mind, you can make a new one anytime on or before the cut off date March 13, 2008.
To see the game rules click here. Here is a quick summary of the rules:
- Latest on Thursday before every race there will be sticky post for the current round of the game.
- Make your prediction in the comments below that post anytime before start of the qualifying session on Saturday
- Predict the Pole position, Top eight in the race (in order you think they will finish the race) and the fastest lap
- And then enjoy the race
What are we playing for ?
First, there is the iPod nano that nobody qualified for yet. If nobody qualifies by March 13, then I will give it to the the winner of stage 1 – leader of the game after race 6.
The winner of the Australian GP round will receive a 2008 cap of the race winner (if it will be available in Melbourne). In case the winning driver’s cap will not be on sale in Melbourne yet, I will choose some other driver’s cap .
When it comes to the overall winner, I will stay with the MUMM tradition and reward the winner with 3 bottles of MUMM champagne. At the end, it is just the game and we play for fun, not for prizes right ? I should be able to deliver the champagne to most places where I see the entries coming from. Just in case the delivery will prove to be impossible for whatever reason, I will drink the MUMM myself and work out suitable alternative prize with the winner .
I will however add few more prizes for winners of selected rounds of the game during the course of the 2008 season.
Do not miss out on the fun, join now. And remember – the biggest change in the rules from last year – the predictions must be made BEFORE THE QUALIFYING not before the race as last year.
