d: m schu
e: webbo :(
rj and emmet: pls consider suggestions if possible...if cannot accept, i'll understand...and we'll have other volunteers then...
btw, all 3 organiser and referees can bet but if the dispute concerns any one of these 3, the other 2 will adjudicate...
My 2 cents:
a. Pole getter - 2 points
b. Winner of GP - 1 point
c. Second in GP - 1 point
d. Third in GP - 1 point (maybe 2 - ie first non-TOIT)
e. 1st DNF/DNS/DQ - 2 point (point given even if DQ is appealed)
f. Albers race finish position - 3 points (1 point if prediction is dnf/dns/dq)
g. Friesacher race finish position - 3 points (1 point if prediction is dnf/dns/dq)
i did seriously think about your suggestion last year...but i don't think we will have a toitdom season this year. even the drivers (good as they are) may struggle with the squealing handling of the "pigs" with groove tyres, methink...so have given the winner the 3 points and the second 2 points...considering that the first and second do more often have to drive to near the end to get those 2 spots while the third usually cruise from 2 thirds way home...
also the minardi boys get 2 points for the exact prediction because we have only to play with the last 6 positions to get them right... :-)
but would still be amenable to change it if there are more opinions to the contrary to my views above...but would have to apply the "concorde" rule that all who have posted their bets MUST agree to any proposed changes...
On another note, I was about to put my bets in, but then realised I don't know who's driving what :P
There will be no second place for me this year (more likely last).

it could be in a pig-sty for 2!
but, errrr, hmmm, lets see...ok, i'll commit to at least a 3 star hotel (better than the best room you'll find near the old A1-ring GP in austria)...or in a house where you'll be more than comfortable and have free beer...
and in the meantime, if sponsorship can be found before the season ends, the prize could be raised to a 4-star or 5-star city hotel...
ok, that's the prize commited.
b. Winner of GP - MS
c. Second in GP - RB (TOIT's MS's bootlicker)
d. Third in GP - JPM
e. 1st DNF/DNS/DQ - the indian
f. Albers race finish position - 8th
