Our event for October 11th has met it's minimum attendance numbers, and is thus confirmed. Looking forward to seeing everyone there
It looks as though our top 10 in PAX has been mathematically decided at this point - the names will not change, but the order almost certainly will after the October 11th event.
Here's the current top 10, with their theoretical maximum and minimum positions after event #9. Everyone can theoretically gain 50 points in the next event, but people with 6 or more events will need to drop a varying amount of points in exchange (this explains the variances).
Chris Gifford (243pts, dropping 29): Best 1st, Worst 3rd
Karl Hughes (243pts, dropping 35): Best 1st, Worst 3rd
Kyle Rashford (213pts, dropping 26): Best 3rd, Worst 6th
Yuiry Yatsishin (195pts, dropping 0): Best 1st, Worst 10th
John Croasdaile (193pts, dropping 28): Best 3rd, Worst 10th
Mark Mangicaro (191pts, dropping 29): Best 4th, Worst 10th
Gerrit VanVranken (178pts, dropping 25): Best 4th, Worst 10th
Scott Newton (177pts, dropping 5): Best 3rd, Worst 10th
Randy Humphreys (160pts, dropping 0): Best 4th, Worst 10th
Mike Wilson (158pts, dropping 0): Best 4th, Worst 10th
The current drivers in 11th and below cannot gain enough points on offer to catch 10th place
