The 2014 10 'n' Pole Competition launch

Post by 10 n Pole Admin » Mon Feb 24, 2014 11:37 am

Welcome to the fourteenth season of this exciting competition where you predict the top 10 finishers in addition to the Pole setter for each of the 19 Formula 1 races in 2014.

The competition rules for 2014 haven't changed and hopefully all the teething issues as a result of the new interface have been resolved. The feedback on the new interface has been mostly positive. As always we need your support to increase the number of participants so please spread the word!

You can register at anytime at http://newsonf1.net/10npole/registration.php

Those already in the competition do not need to register again.

The competition as always remains free and in 2014 we are once again offering exciting prizes with major prizes in addition to each individual round winner. There is also a prize for the perfect pick. If a player picks the top 10 finishers in the exact order as well as the pole setter, they win a $200 Gift Certificate from NewsOnF1.

We are aware that some winners in the past haven't received their prizes. There has been issues with the voucher system as well as issues sending prizes to certain countries. If you have won a prize prior to the 2013 season, please send us an email and we will arrange a gift certificate for you. Those who won in 2013 will receive their gift certificates soon. We do sincerely apologise for the delays.

The major prizes in 2014 are:

A Grand Prize of $250 (Gift Certificate from NewsOnF1 Online Store) to the overall winner of the competition

A Second Prize of $150 (Gift Certificate from NewsOnF1 Online Store) to the second placed player in the competition overall.

A Third Prize of $100 (Gift Certificate from NewsOnF1 Online Store) to the third placed player in the competition overall.

A Fourth Prize of $75 (Gift Certificate from NewsOnF1 Online Store) to the fourth placed player in the competition overall.

A Fifth Prize of $50 (Gift Certificate from NewsOnF1 Online Store) to the fifth placed player in the competition overall.

We'd like to thank all of you for your support and would ask you to consider purchasing your Formula 1 needs through NewsOnF1.
