  • Ian: Wiz or Slugs, have we lost chatroom and who's online ?
    June 05, 2018, 09:19:29 AM
  • Calman: Mr Happy over here Wizzo, so it's all good,  Cheers!

  • Wizzo: Its not a problem Cal, its better than waiting for your pictures to be approved.

  • Calman: Hi Wizzo ... I am trying to understand the system, not change it, so appologise if my attempts to add to the gallery are causing any unessesary stress!
    April 09, 2018, 05:56:12 AM
  • Wizzo: To be honest its a very long time since we had any issues with members photos. I have changed the permissions so that images no longer need admin approval
    April 08, 2018, 03:14:05 PM
  • Calman: Thanks for the info and approval on my 1st photo Wizzo, really appreciate it.  So, who is the best member to contact for photo approval (as I am aware that you mostly appear online over the weekend).
    April 08, 2018, 01:44:45 AM
  • Scott: When I do my GG picks, I get a warning that the website is not secure up on the browser address...using Safari.  Anyone else get anything like that?
    April 07, 2018, 09:34:27 PM
  • Wizzo: Yes the gallery does not inform the admin when a new picture is posted so we either have to check everyday or its just easier when you post a picture to let one of us know. Yours has been approved.
    April 07, 2018, 06:56:03 PM
  • Calman: Can anyone shed light on why an image I uploaded to the gallery 24+ hours ago is still pending approval? ... thank you.

  • Calman: Took a HUGE gamble with my Bahrain Race predications, so let's see how crazy a race it may be!
    April 02, 2018, 11:26:21 PM
  • Calman: Lovely, will have to think about some predictions for Bahrain in the next few days!!
    March 29, 2018, 01:02:51 AM

    March 28, 2018, 12:11:49 PM

    January 27, 2018, 08:17:01 PM
  • Scott: Nice score getting an Amazon ad up there, Wizzo!   :good:
    January 03, 2018, 05:39:05 PM
  • Scott: Fraid I won't be around for the season final...we have groups at the hotel lunch and dinner and we are moving Monday am, so barely a minute to sit down...perhaps I can pop in for a minute or two at some point.
    November 24, 2017, 07:55:09 AM
  • Wizzo: Hi Greg, you're better off telling us about your concept in a written post on the forum for all to see. I'm sure you'll get a few opinions.

2018 Grid Game Rules

  • Welcome to the GPWizard 2018 Grid Game

    As always the aim of the Grid Game is to correctly predict each Formula 1 race result, score the most points, see if you can do better than everyone else and become the Grid Game Champion.

    All the F1 driver names are supplied in simple drop down lists so each prediction can be entered in about 30 seconds, it's free and very quick and easy to play. Here is a quick guide:

    Predict the following:
    Pole position (2 points) Driver that starts the race from pole.
    Top 8 finishing drivers (2 points for a driver in the right position.1 point for a driver in the wrong position).
    Fastest race lap (1 point).
    Rain: Yes/No (1 point) decided by members in the race chat room as F1 officials mucked it a few times in the past.
    Safety Car: Yes/No (1 point) Will be counted when the actual safety car is deployed during race, a virtual safety car does not count.
    Did Not Finish (1 point) DNF-numbers of cars not finishing race, again declared in the race chat room.

    Bonus Points:
    Double Up - doubles your points for one race (can only be used once per season, must be declared before qualifying deadline).
    Prediction deadlines:
    Qualifying deadline -1 hour before the start of qualifying. If you fail to place your predictions before the qualifying deadline you will lose the chance to predict the driver in pole position but you can continue to place your race predictions up to the race deadline.
    Race deadline - 1 hour before the start of the race. If you miss the race deadline then you have missed the chance to participate in the current race weekend.
    Qualifying and Race deadlines are clearly shown on the left this sites pages.

    Late Picks - IMPORTANT   If you cannot access GPWizard or you know you will not be able to place your picks then we will accept your predictions via PM to Dare or email to at any time before the relevant deadline.

    The Winner:
    The player with the highest accumulated score from the current F1 season.

    If there is no outright winner:
    If two or more players tie with the highest score then the player with the highest score plus the greatest number of correct pole picks will be the winner. If the players are still tied the player with the highest single (non DU) race score will be winner. If still tied Wizzo will draw a winner from his top hat.

    The Prize:
    As always there will be some generous F1 related prizes and these will be announced later. Please keep a look out for another notification.

    Additional Information:
    -Check your scores after each race. All scores become official after one week - Correct or Incorrect.
    -Race results will be adjusted to match the official race results in the event of a race investigation or disqualification.
    -Players may only use one Username to enter the competition.
    -Moderators decision is final in all aspects of the GPWizard Grid Game.

  • 2points for Pole...good call.  Can we add an adendum that pole position is the car that achieves the first place during the Q sessions, and not (necessarily) the car that starts on pole? the odd case when it isnít the same due to a grid penalty.

    That was brought up last year and we decided to go along with who
    starts on pole.
