2013 V8 Tipping Competition

Recommended Posts

Expressions of Interest for 2013 Auslot V8 Competition proudly sponsored bytbirds.jpg

 

 

After the success of the 2012 V8 tipping competition we are seeking expressions of interest (tipsters) for entry in to the 2013 Auslot V8 Competition. You don't need to know anything about the V8's as by entering tips for each round you have a chance of winning the lucky entrant prize.

 

We have taken much of the feedback from the 2012 competition and have created a web based competition with the following features:

 

- Enter tips for any configured round

- Email notification of the tips that you have entered

- Automated scoring/ranking (once an administrator has entered the results)

- Countdown timer to easily determine when the next round is closing

- Review your tips versus results

- Automated closing of rounds based on date/time (users can see when a round is closing)

 

The prizes for this years competition include: (more details to follow):

To register your interest simply PM @miveson with your email address.

 

At the time of competition launch we will email you the tipping competition login details.

 

We are currently beta testing the website and are waiting for v8supercars to officially launch the new season.

This coming season should be a bit less predictable (read more interesting) than the last with all the new machinery.

Count me in.

Im in,..................................................... Its going to be a humdinger of a year with the COTF.

 

We have even picked up a sponsor. Chris at Thunderbirds has kindly supplied a Scalextric V8 Supercar for the main prize. Plus an XB has also been donated from someone on here for the lucky entrants prize (details to follow).

 

A big thanks to Miveson also, for all the hard work and time put into this years tipping comp web page. He has done an awesome job with the new format that is being introduced this year. A massive improvement from the Yahoo days that we first had to deal with, and its all kept inhouse.

12 tipsters after less than 24hrs..... loads of time to go before season opener.

 

It's likely that the website will be accessible early February (if not earlier) giving sufficient time for the first round on the 28th February.

 

Keep an eye on your email for those that have expressed interest as the email addresses supplied will be used for notifications

 

- Competition updates

- Round closing notifications (for those that haven't entered tips yet)

- Your tips will be emailed automatically when submitted/modified

- Password recovery

 

Still plenty of work to do beautifying the project and adding the appropriate security :) The competition is only accessible to Auslot users.

There's only two questions:

 

1. What direction do you go

2. What's the Lap Record?

Sounds interesting... I'll pass this along to my brother too...

 

I may have missed it, but is there an entry fee?

Well done to Mark for sorting out the problems - the whole shebang looks quite flash!

I'm pretty happy with the testing - I'll reset the BETA site by the end of the month and reset passwords/content/picks/results.

 

Should be ready for live tipping in February once final teams/drivers are announced.

 

Thank you to everyone who tested - it is very much appreciated, you found a few bugs that have since been resolved.
