With the 2013 S2 finish line on the horizon, it’s time to crunch some numbers in the iGPS.

Heading into the last third of 2013 Season 2 of the iRacing.com Grand Prix Series, the top 10 finishers overall earn a license to compete in the iRacing.com Road Pro Series starting in late October. This is how the season is shaping up . . .

Looking at the numbers drivers should be aiming for a certain point total when it comes to finishing-off the season of online racing with the Williams-Toyota FW31.

A driver with the point total of 2060 will clinch the championship and the magic number to clinch the top ten and obtain the elusive point total is 1870. These numbers will probably go down as we get to the last week, but for mathematical purposes these are the numbers these sim-racers should target.

ALMOST CLINCHED

POS NAME PNTS DROP GAIN TOTAL TOTAL ELIM
1 Paolo Muià 1734 146 300 2034 282 IN
2 Robin Friskopps 1718 0 341 2059 152 IN

These drivers can clinch this week:

Paolo Muià can clinch if he obtains a point total of 282 points. Although the average top points for this season have been around 260 mark, the Strength of Field (SoF) can go high enough to help Paolo clinch.

Robin Friskopps can clinch if he obtains a point total of 152. Because he missed a week and is in second place a solid week this week could place him in a clinched position and on his way to the Pro Series.

THERE BUT NOT THERE YET

POS NAME PNTS DROP GAIN TOTAL TOTAL ELIM
3 Michael Gomen 1672 140 292 1964 338 IN
4 Ariel Eduardo Bernardi 1655 144 309 1964 359 IN
5 Jan Niesiolowski 1553 145 365 1918 462 IN
6 Joonas Nukarinen 1452 0 566 2018 418 IN
7 Tommy Nilsson 1448 0 684 2132 422 IN

These drivers are in a very good position to set themselves up to clinch. Although none of them can clinch this week, with a solid week these drivers can set themselves up to confirm their spot in the Pro Series.

It should also be noted that Joonas Nukarinen and Tommy Nilsson have both missed weeks and that any points earned this week will be added to their point total and not taken away due to a drop.

ON THE BUBBLE

8 Jorge Montanes 1434 131 437 1871 567 IN
9 Michele Mancusi 1411 5 616 2027 464 IN
10 Mikko Meriluoto 1401 87 525 1926 556 IN

 

These guys are on the bubble; solid weeks here and they will gain spots, miss the mark and their bubble will be popped. In this category you should also note Michele Mancusi had a very low drop week and could be considered in the same postion as Nukarinen and Nilsson.

OUTSIDE LOOKING IN

11 Lasse Bruun-Hansen 1324 0 545 1869 546 IN
12 Christiaan Tanahatoe 1185 0 569 1754 685 IN
13 Matt Hannagan 1181 121 530 1711 810 IN
14 Justin Lindsay 1170 100 544 1714 800 IN
15 Anthony Kopec 1139 131 497 1636 862 IN
16 Paolo Accurso 1128 95 546 1674 837 IN
17 Ryosuke Iwasaki 1084 0 786 1870 786 IN
18 Hunter Manley 1074 0 707 1781 796 IN

These drivers have a good shot and are still in the fight and contention to win a spot in the Pro Series. A few of these guys have missed weeks here but don’t be surprised if you see them pop the bubbles of those ahead of them.

LIVING ON A PRAYER

29 Lars Jeppesen 794 0 796 1590 1076 IN
30 Raffaele A Di Palo 784 0 788 1572 1086 IN

These drivers are still in the fight. Strong weeks and they will find themselves closer to the top; weak weeks and they could be considered out.

ELMINATED

43 David Cudmore 611 57 780 1391 1316 ELIM

The only driver in the top 50 that has been eliminated is David Cudmore.

Good Luck to all the drivers making the 2013 Pro Series as it is still a wide open race.
