The start of the 2008 GP season is rapidly approaching. 02/17/08 begins testing, the 1st race is 3/9/08 from Qatar.

I would like to recruit more members to participate in our 2008 Fantasy Season Points Chase. What are you waiting for, it adds another dimension to the exciting world of MotoGP racing. Let the fun begin!

As it stands now you pick 5 racers in the order you think they will finish. Points are awarded as follows:

Points awarded for correct position of race finish.
10 points = 1st place
8 points = 2nd place
6 points = 3rd place
4 points = 4th place
2 points = 5th place

Additional points awarded for picking the top five racers in no particular order.
5 out of 5 = 5 points + 3 bonus points = 8 total points
4 out of 5 = 4 points + 2 bonus points = 6 total points
3 out of 5 = 3 points + 1 bonus point = 4 total points
2 out of 5 = 2 points + 0 bonus points = 2 total points
1 out of 5 = 1 point + 0 bonus points = 1 total point

20 bonus points = Pick the 2008 GP World Champion. This pick must be made prior to the first race of the season.

Absentee picks: Anyone not getting their picks in by the deadline(to be determined and posted) will receive the racers that qualified in positions 6 thru 10. This is a one time freebee unless you have a damn good reason like the dog pee'd on your computer. I post the upcoming race a week before it takes place which should give everyone sufficient time.

Entry fee is $20 You must be paid before the start of the 2nd race! Paypal is accepted [email protected] or PM me if you want to pay by check.

Prize money
1st place = 60%
2nd place = 30%
3rd place = 10%

In case of a tie players will split the prize monies. ie: 2 players tie for 1st place. They would split 1st and 2nd place prize money.

Members who played last year in order of finishing.
Returning players please post if you want to be included.
New players; If you want to be added to this list please post.

Mike, you need to edit your first post. It needs to say 2008 season champ for 20 bonus points.

Nope, you won't get to see any spreadsheets, unless of course, you are logged in with one's Google account.

I have a Gmail account but I don't know if the masses do and/or would be willing to make one to be able to play... if they have already paid, who cares!

We all know you are the brains behind last years #1 spot. What have you done with Nate?

Yeah to Iraq, but not in the service. Just working for a year, then coming home hopefully.Not what I want to do but desperate times call for desperate measures.
