Guess the Pole 2019: Australia + RESULTS

Post by XcraigX » 2 weeks ago

Guess what time it is!?!?

It's that time again! Time to get geared up for the 2019 season! (And possibly time to save hundreds with Gieco! :wink: )

If you are new to GTP and think you may want to play, send me a PM and I can get you a log in. Otherwise, make sure to hit the links and enter your times as the cut-offs have all changed in 2018 thanks to FIA ensuring we have enough time to get in a few commercials before the race starts.

You can go to the following link to access the "enter a GTP guess" page:
http://www.disturbthe.com/GTP/guess.php


You can go to the following link to access the "view users GTP guesses" page:
http://www.disturbthe.com/GTP/allguesses.php


THE GTP RULES (In effect since 2017)
1. Your guess must be entered in a 1:23.456 format (please use all 3 decimal places). This is not so much as a rule as the fact you will get an error if you don't put in a time to 3 decimal places.
2. You can change your time guess as many times as you wish prior to the start of the first free practice time.
3. You can not edit your time after the deadline as the system will not allow the change.
4. Points payout CHANGED IN 2017 and is:
1st = 10 Points (with a +10 point bonus for exact guess to the thousandths place for a total of 20 points)
2nd = 6 Points
3rd = 4 Points
4th = 3 Points
5th = 2 Points
6th = 1 Point
5. Any duplicate time guesses will score that place to the first person who guessed it. The second person will finish one place down, etc...
(Example: If 3 people guess the winning time the same, the first place goes to the person with the earliest guess time, 2nd goes to the next guess time and third goes to the last. The next slowest unique time will score 4th place.)

6. If you edit your time and end up with a duplicate, the last time you entered a guess will be counted as your guess time used in rule 4 (regardless if you changed back to an earlier guess).
7. The Accuracy standings are calculated based on how far your guess is from the actual pole time. Your total accuracy is a sum of all your guess differentials for the season. Often the Point Champ is different from the Accuracy Champ.
8. In order to be considered for the Accuracy standings, you must enter a guess for each round. If you miss a round, the accuracy total can not be calculated. (Often there are only a handful in the running at the end of the year.)

9. The deadline for guess entries is always the start of First Practice. Friday's for most rounds. Thursday for Monaco. Please note that many of the Asia/Pacific races have deadlines late Thurs night or VERY early Friday morning relative to Europe and North America.
10. Please PM me if you do not have a username and password and want to join the game.

Please PM me if you have any issues or questions.

I will post a new thread for each round of the season for track information, results, comments, and discussion. Good Luck!

You ended well for only contesting 1/2 the season last year. Just imagine what could happen if you really try this year?
Turn 3 race wins into 6 and you have the championship. (Barring MonteCristo getting an exact time again this year).

@erwin greven comes to post that he’s not going to post in thread competition that requires as much effort as one of his two posts in this thread :wow:

Is there a website somewhere which says what kind of tyres they will use and how the new categories compare against the old ones?
