**Sign up here**2009 Fantasy Season MotoGP Pick'Em



The start of the 2009 GP season is rapidly approaching. pre-season testing has begun, the 1st race is 4/12/09 from Losail, Qatar.

WT would like to recruit more members to participate in our 2009 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. The upcoming race will be posted a week before it takes place which should give everyone sufficient time.

Entry fee is $25 You must be paid before the start of the 2nd race! For my home address, PM me to pay by check.
This is a win-win situation, $5 from every entry fee will go towards keeping our site afloat. Even if you do not follow MotoGP it is fun to participate while helping your site.

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.


2008 players please post if you want to be included.
