Hi F1 Fans
OLBG have kindly allowed me to run a Challenge on the whole season of Formula 1 in 2012, they have also be kind enough to offer prizes, in total they will give away £125 towards this challenge.
The Format is very simple, all you have to do is answer 6 simple questions for each weekend of the season, the first 3 questions will be about qualifying and the other 3 questions will be about the race itself, you gain or lose points depending on your answers, there will also be a tie breaker in case of a tie.
The person with the most points each week will be the winner and will win £5, but that's not all, we will be running a Driver's Title and the top 10 finishers in each race will pick up points, just like the real Grand Prix and these will be added up during the season and at the end of the season the Driver with the most points will be Champion and win £10, the runner up will win £5.
Also, as an extra Bonus, we will also have a Constructor's Championship, just like the real thing, every person who enters the challenge will be put into a team (2 drivers per team), each drivers points for will be added to the the teams total and at the end of the season the Team with the most points will win £10 (£5 for each driver), don't forget to keep in touch with your team mate as you are both important to each other in this competition.
In order to qualify for the end of season Constructors prize, a driver must compete in at least 50% of the seasons races.
If a driver does not compete in 50% of the races and the team wins the constructors prize then the other driver will win the whole prize.
If neither driver qualifies then the 2nd placed team will win the prize
There will be a cut off point for every race, but the cut off point for the first race will be slightly earlier so i can sort out the teams, we will use all 12 team names for this season, if we have more than 24 drivers then we will also have "B" Teams, the "B" teams will be seperate from the proper teams, each team will only have 2 drivers in it, if we have an odd number of entrants then unfortunately that driver will be in a team on his/her own.
The 6 questions will be the same questions every weekend but the Driver's /Teams will differ, the Tie Break Question will also stay the same for each weekend.
