Question Last Years Points Structure?

i wonder what would have happened in the points table if we had last years scoring??? surely marcus would have it wrapped up by now...man its gonna suck winning all those races and doing so well only to have the handbag take it.

your thoughts?
also i just got on DSL does anyone have the link to the bathurst live stream? also could anyone estimate a download rate for that sort of thing? ive only got 1gig left but dont want to miss anything .....

Re: Last Years Points Structure?

it'd be close between murphy and ambrose as both have had a bad round this year,but i think murphy and ambrose are only in contention as skaife needs em both to drop mid pak at least and then win to win the championship and thats for both rounds..

Re: Last Years Points Structure?

I thought you had to have Bigpond Broadband to get Special V8 things because Bigpond being a Sponsor

Ambrose should have a decent lead in the points this year if they were using last years system, Ambrose has won more Races that Murphy

I think points should be calculated on the distance they go over the race, so bathurst would have alot of points and the enduros would have more than the 3 race rounds. also maybe bonus points for things, pole, leading time over 30 seconds at finish, hadtrick things like that would get them pushing very hard all the time

Re: Last Years Points Structure?

I haven't worked out this year with last year's scoring. With double points that was also a stupid system. Here's what the points would have been before Pukekohe using the FIA system though (F1/WRC):
Ambrose: positions(11,17,1,1,1,1,2,1,5,6,4) 0+0+10+10+10+10+8+10+4+3+5 = 70
Skaife: positions(1,6,19,6,8,2,27,3,1,8,3) 10+3+0+3+1+8+0+6+10+1+6=48
Murphy: positions(9,3,5,14,2,4,8,11,3,1,2) 0+6+4+0+8+5+1+0+6+10+8 = 48
Ingall: positions(8,10,3,4,13,18,1,8,5,6,1) +0+6+5+0+0+10+1+4+3+10=40
I.e., he wouldn't even need to turn up to the last two rounds.

Here's last year with this year's points (unadjusted). I think we can all agree it was a year where Skaife completely and utterly dominated:
Ambrose: 1887
Skaife: 1858
Murphy: 1822
I.e., Skaife was pretty much hanging onto the championship by the skin of his teeth and relying on removal of worst rounds to win.

It will be so unfair if Ambrose loses because of this moronic points system. It should be patently obvious to anyone with a brain that he deserves the championship more than anyone else.

Scoot - good point well made!

It mystifies me as to why they had to drop the worst round.
