    After getting the last issue of SportsCar and seeing how bad of a job I think they did picking the winners in many of the classes, I want to see if I can do better! The Pick the Winners competition was a lot of fun last year, and looks like it got sccaforums a lot of traffic. Any plans to do it again this year?

    I didn't do it last year. How is it done? Just a list of 3 or 4 names for each and click on who you think is the winner?

    Mike if I remember right it pulls the entry list from motorsportreg for each class (which is why they wait this long to do it) and you pick one person from each class that you think will win, then submit it. Then you can view the tally where it places everyone in order by number of votes (that was the coolest part for me). The end result is a MUCH better prediction of who is going to win than sportscar. I'd actually be curious to look at the list from last year and see how accurate the "popular vote" was in picking the winners, is that around somewhere Chris?

    Oh and if you specifically guess the most correctly you get prizes.

    Anyone want to get in and vote early for the PTW contest? Click on my name above my avatar here in the forums to see my profile, then send me a message and I will respond with the URL so you can access it.

    I need a few people to get in, test things out, make sure everything is working, before we launch the contest publicly.

    I bet it's a lot easier now than it was back in June. :)
