the hits-race

The world-teams which used to compete in the Interplanetary Knock-Out up to August 2021 are now pitted against each other in the all-against-all Hits Race.  Day-by-day top ten placings are announced on the Facebook page for this site.  On this page are listed the monthly top ten. 

Also with every succeeding month are shown the "rolling winners": the accumulated scores of the races over the lifetime of the tournament.  (The heavy hitters have featured consistently.  Those who are less consistent lose out when they don't appear, because in any month when they don't reach the Top Ten, nothing at all is added to their rolling scores; e.g. it's tough when they're 11th - they get nothing!)
