S17 RACE 3: Almaden - Talavera de la Reina



The Nine:


Comment: Jasper is THE MAN, and the rest should work for him, as he is the only one with chances to makes some good points. But we all know that this races are a bit crazy, so... we will see. Andrew Carter and Will Bixter are the last 2 selected, in order to give him a bit of exp, as since Wilt there is no level enough to help properly.

My current 19-year-olds TTers are dropping like flies from the cursed low talent disease (CoVid19 has nothing on it), so more vacancies are opening.

He's now gone to work in a factory after less than 1 week (another is likely to join him, plus two more with talent unknown).  What it means is that I'm still hunting for suitable Aussie 19-year-old TTers.  TT skill needs to be mid 60s+, plus with good stamina-flat-technique.  Several days remaining, so for some late draft-scout income, go hunting for an Aussie TT prospect or two.

Fortunately money is a little like lolly paper in this game.  Talent 1-0 is a fail regardless of initial stats, especially for TT.

Hills-TT can't live on hills alone.  Although hills made Lenny Taylor buyable from you for 4.5m.  Also David Parker & Alex Trautemberg made it to buyable because of hills (and at least one other this season, but he's already been sacked - 2 out of 3 of my purchases will be sacked - I've probably sacked around 35-40m this promotion cycle).

Comment: Right now, those are the ones that I have in my filter. A few things are clear: Kirk Workman, Bud Mount and Peter Coleman will be selected and Levin will not. The other 6 are still in doubt.

Finally, I have the 9. I've change the % few times, made an average...and took a decision. Lets see how many points achieve this time...

+ + + 12º + 14º + 15º = 840 points ! 8)
With a little more luck even more points were possible because the other 3 finished 1, 2, and 3 seconds outside the points (21º, 24º, 25º).
Anyway, amazing TT results ! Australia made a mega jump in the season ranking and now the new number 1.  :)

Well, indeed, no race tactics were needed,
but for an Australian NT manager it is still a difficult tactical/strategic puzzle in who to select with the many good Australian TT specialists.
So ; well done Franky, and making the selection for NT race 6 might be even a bigger tactical challenge.

But first things first, and that is cobblehills NT race 5.
Maybe Australia is in the situation that we are a fierce competitor for the world championship, even with 0 points in the next race.
And maybe that will depend on the tactical selection skills of Franky, what is for 75% genius so far this season.  :P  ;)  :))  :-*
