- Prizes were given to top 8% instead of 1.6%, which is 5x as many as usual

Well that’s purely because the brackets were 100 compared to the usual 500 is it not? a bit of smoke and mirrors there.

Smoke and mirrors? It's a simple re-statement of the numbers so it's easier for us to contrast with the participation, instead of having to go back and dig up an image of what the final brackets were exactly.

Worded as if they gave out more prize cars than usual, when in fact it is the opposite

That doesn't seem fair, Tim clearly stated that it was less than average (90%) "- Overall about 90% as many ZR1s were given out as an average Tri-Series Final"

I’m actually impressed you gave so many prize cars out. I was expecting far fewer than 90% of average, so kudos for increasing the percentages at the last minute.

Actually, with the number of open brackets that didn't fill that means the odds were better, right? I know there were at least 7 US brackets and I only have confirmation that 2 of them filled.

I’ve no idea how many filled in the EU. Any idea why they didn’t fill, bugged or what?

Not sure. We've seen this in the past, where some brackets seem to stagnate and new brackets open.

Its a bug, sometimes brackets stop at a certain point, while new ones open. Happened to me in the Mercedes Q or C event recently, just 32 players in, 10th and down finished in negative points.

Yeh, I know one of the EU ones only got to 60 as has happened in the past, I’d be a bit frustrated if as you suggested there were multiple ones that didn’t fill.

So to sum this up at a high level, with a little rounding:

- Participation in the Final was about 7.5x lower than an average Final (as it was harder to qualify) - Prizes were given to top 8% instead of 1.6%, which is 5x as many as usual - Due to unfilled leaderboards, the ZR1 went to a little over 10% of finalists in total (this makes much less difference in a normal final) - Overall about 90% as many ZR1s were given out as an average Tri-Series Final - For context, over the last year, the 4 lowest-participation finals gave out an average of 50% as many prize cars as the average Tri-Series Final

The best event ever, surely it could be better, but this is the right way to go

I threw some upgrades too. Im very disappointed with this car. It should be better on tracks than most of other cars (ford gt also), but it is not. I hoped that Grip would reach smth like 103-105, but only 100.

Agreed. This car is a track monster and the grip only hits 100. Same with the Camaro ZL1 1LE

677✭✭✭✭and it sounds like it it's totally bad, low participation, more prize cars given, etc. Like it's a total failure.
