And why it's bad thing that a team tries to get all good "something" (soccer players, basketball players, rc drivers etc)?

That only means how dedicated is that team to win

Well done Teemu on his first race for Xray

At least Andy had moore luck than at last years race
Not to take anything away from Teemu, an excellent performance on his first race with Xray, but the points system is not very fair I think.

Andy had 5 wins and one DNF out of 6 finals
Teemu had 4 wins a 2nd a DNF out of 6 finals

I understand that the two worst results do not count, but they should count as tie brakers.
The way it is now, the guy with the most wins did not win!

The same had occured in a Reedy race, with Jilles at that time I think.

Anyway it was a great race, with very good performances!

Think of it this way...

Andy started on the front row (on the pole) 3 times and Teemu was never on the front row. 3rd was Teemu's best start and he started 7th 3 times.

The better driver certainly won the race.

Nope Andy had 4 wins as did teemu

Andy had a DNF and an 8th as throw away

Teemu had a 7th and a 2nd as throw away

Teemus win was well deserved starting from further back more times though and taking TQ before the heads up racing.

I wonder if Teemu still drove for your team if you would really believe your last statement.
