Hi Guys and Girls,

To run alongside the Formula One 2014 season I'm inviting all of you to take part in my Whacky Races.

How it works

You don't have to be a Formula One fan to take part and it's open to all real money players on PokerStars.
  • Simply pick a driver from the list below and post your selection in this thread.
  • Then play in the 'Whacky Race' tournament in my home game club.
  • If your finishing position in the tournament matches your chosen drivers finishing position in that weekends Formula one race I will ship you $5

Rules:

You can only pick one driver and your first selection only is counted.

Edited posts will not count and will not be considered.

Basically post what driver you choose and that's it, do not edit your post after that

The tournament in my home game club will always take place before the Formula One Race each weekend.

You must play in the tournament to be considered for a prize. Players that sit-out the tournament will not be considered.

Divers are taken on a first come, first served basis. You cannot pick a driver thats already taken.

Winners will be shipped funds within 3 days of race ending.

For example, if you choose Fernando Alonso and finish 5th in the home game tournament you'll have to wait and see if Fernando finises 5th in the motor-race. If he does I'll ship you $5

looks like Roslyn has the best potential again to match her driver in the real race.

Good luck all

Fair enough. I wasn't joking - did you see where Hulkenberg qualified! Ah well, not much chance of him getting onto the podium but you never know at Monaco...

I did see - watched all practice/qualifying rounds. Suppose it is a case of either grabbing the regular top team drivers prior to qualifying and hoping nothing goes wrong, or waiting and picking up the surprise high qualifiers.

I think the group had all the top qualifiers as usual, but also some mid-fielders this time Button, Hulkenberg and Bottas

Just hope it is a good race - Monaco is a great GP venue, but also I remember the place I chose to direct my nuclear bomb (in one of those odd mental exercises they do like pick someone to throw out of a lifeboat/hot air balloon).
