F1 Australian Grand Prix 2017-Guess winner, podium: PRIZES!

Post by joelk »

And we are back for a brand new Season 2017! :D

No Ecclestone and no Rosberg...but still Stampboards, and the start of a new era. :wink: 8)

So welcome back to the Stampboarders who are regulars on these F1 contests and to newbies alike! I hope you will all have a lot of fun in the new Season. :D

Our first stop is in Australia, and there is no change to the rules of the last season.

We have one current accumulator of 'Points 2', Arianto (member Allegheny), who starts the season with 16 of these points to 'pay' towards an alternative Prize 2.

We also have a brand new Prize 3, for the whole season. I hope you will like it... :D :D

So here we are in Melbourne for the race on March 26...


But first, the rules:

You need to be a Stampboards member - joining up is free -

Register here!

To qualify for winning a prize here, all you need to do after you join up is to make sure you contribute at least 5 (on topic) posts to philatelic threads, not including requests to receive freebies, before the start of the GP.

I will check your posts in the event you have a winning guess in order to verify this qualification.

If you did not quality for any reason, the prize will go to the next eligible post.

To participate, you must name five different drivers, in the order you believe they will be officially classified, from the winner, to the fifth finisher.

One guess per Stampboarder, and it cannot be changed once it has been made. Editing in the same post will also no longer be permitted.

You will get one point per driver who finishes in the same position as your guess, so a maximum of 5 points at each race.

- Prize 1: the winner is the person who gets the most points at that race. If there is a tie, the earlier guess wins.

- Prize 2: the winner is the person who gets the most points at the end of a three race sprint. In case of a tie, the earlier guess on the third race of the sprint wins.

The winner of Prize 2 then has a choice: he or she can go for the default Prize 2, which will always be a four margin penny black, or he or she can choose to accumulate more points to ‘purchase’ an alternative Prize 2. The accumulation can only go until the end of Season 2018, as this format will continue for the next two seasons.

The list of Prize 2's along with how many points you need to purchase them, is shown below.

Once you have won a 3 race sprint, if you do not elect to take the Penny Black on offer, you will continue to accumulate points for Prize 2 as long as you wish (but not past the end of Season 2018) in order to ‘purchase’ an alternative Prize 2.

You can do so at any time once you have accumulated enough points to ‘purchase’ the Prize 2 of your choosing.

Once you have chosen a Prize 2, whether the Penny Black or an alternative Prize, your Prize 2 points count will be reset to 0.

If you do not choose the penny black, it will be on offer for the next three race sprint.

This is designed so that anyone who wins a three race sprint will at some point be able to claim a Prize 2, whether a four margin penny black or an alternative Prize.

Everyone else will have their Prize 2 points reset to 0 to restart the three race sprint, except the Prize 2 points 'accumulators'.

There can be several Prize 2 points 'accumulators' at the same time, as long as they have not 'purchased' their Prize 2.

- Prize 3: the points are counted and accumulated in the same way: 1 point per correctly placed pilot at each race, but everyone gets to keep their Prize 3 points until the season's last race, where the highest point accumulator wins.

Prize 3 will be attributed on November 26, on the occasion of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2017.

If there is a tie, the contest continues only among the Stampboarders with the highest score, until the tie is broken.

Anti-shadowing rule for Prize 3:

- This rule applies to the top three Prize 3 points accumulators at any race: the #1 accumulator will have to post their guess at least three hours before the official start of the race, the #2 accumulator two hours before the official start, and the #3 accumulator one hour.

- There will be zero tolerance for any time 'overshoot', even if it is one second, and any editing for these three contestants, and no excuses accepted: my computer slowed down, Stampboards loaded too slowly, my cat stepped on my keyboard…so please note this carefully as I want to avoid any unpleasantness or ambiguities.


And here are the Prizes:


- Prize 1 results from a little tweak (upgrade) of Prize 2.

It consists of the the Smiling Angel of Reims in MH condition, which was issued by France in 1930 and engraved by Antonin Delzers, and of the Port of La Rochelle stamp issued in 1929, and engraved by Henri Cheffer, also in MH condition:

Image

Image


- And here is the list of Prize 2's:

First, the Penny Black that will be attributed on the occasion of the third Grand Prix of the Season, in Bahrain, on April 16th.

Its check letters are 'RD', and has been identified as a plate 5 by Bill (emason), and Alex (Vikingeck).

Image

The first Alternative Prize 2, costing 10 Prize 2 points, is the iconic 'Pont du Gard', here in MH condition, issued by France in 1930, and engraved by Henri Cheffer:

Image

The second Alternative Prize 2, costing 12 Prize 2 points, was also issued by France, and is the 1936 set celebrating the 100th aerial South Atlantic crossing of the French Postal Service, here also in MH condition:

Image

The third alternative Prize 2, costing 14 points, is a four margin 1840 Two Pence Blue:

Image

The fourth alternative Prize 2, costing 16 Prize 2 points, is the Cardinal Mercier set of Belgium, issued in 1932, also MH:

Image

Image

Image

The fifth Alternative Prize 2, costing 18 Prize 2 points, is pretty exceptional: it consists of all the Buzin bird stamps, ie all formats, face values and of course all birds, issued over the past 30 years. There are 113 stamps and one Souvenir Sheet, all MNH of course:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The sixth Alternative Prize 2, costing 20 Prize 2 points, is the key pre-war set from Belgium, the Great Orval of 1933, here in MH condition. The hinges are exceptionally light btw.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


And finally, the seventh Alternative Prize 2, costing 24 Prize 2 points, is the complete imperforate set of Baudouin Elstrom stamps.

These stamps are all issued without gum, and bear a number at the back between 1 and 1000, unique for each stamp as only 1000 of each were issued.

This is very difficult to assemble completely, so certainly an exclusive here on Stampboards.

The Railway and Military Service stamps are included:

Image

Image

Image

Image


- Prize 3 this season consists of all the France Air Mail stamps issued between 1936 and 1959, with the pre-war stamps in MH condition and the post-war stamps in MNH condition:

Fantastic to see Joel has once AGAIN stepped up to host this amazingly competition - must be many years now!

His incredibly generous stamp prizes are mouth watering, and well worth trying to win. Post #1 is like a stamp auction catalogue! The past year's prizes were amazing, and he has outdone even his own past efforts!

Members need know NOTHING about F1 .. simply type 5 driver names - nothing could be easier. :mrgreen:

The way F1 was in 2016, often "dark horses" won or did well, so give it a try!

In a moment I'll add a list of the final driver table from 2016 to give you some names to choose from!

My own 5 choices are:

Ricciardo (he will hopefully FINALLY get lucky in his home GP!)
Hamilton
Riacconen
Verstappen
Vettel

What fantastic prizes (again), Joel. Thank you for organizing this competition.

I gave up on Formula 1 two seasons ago, but my interest has been reignited by the new, faster cars. So, with renewed interest and Joel's prizes, for the first race (always difficult to predict, I think), I go with:

1 Hamilton
2 Bottas
3 Vettel
4 Ricciardo
5 Raikkonen

Thanks for hosting this again, Joel! Although I was not a follower of F1 when I joined in last year, I became one. I'm looking forward to this year's events, but I'm withholding my selections until after qualifying. I learned last year that there is little worse than having one of your chosen pilots eliminated or heavily penalized during qualifications and having to live with it for the race. :shock:
Many thanks!
Mike

Thank you André and Mike! :D

Yes, waiting until after qualifying can be wise indeed...especially when things are still more uncertain at the beginning of the season. :wink:


Cheers,
Joel.

McLaren-Honda will be a complete joke :evil:

Ferrari's look strong, but I have a feeling that Mercedes is (deliberately) showing its full potential yet.

Here goes, no idea really so we'll see what happens!

Riakkonen
Vettel
Bottas
Hamilton
Massa

PS will be at the GP this year (second time) so unfortunately will miss the stamp show as I booked the GP
first. Hopefully will be a better race than the one I went to 2 years ago.

And thanks for putting this on, some lovely items there!
