Motor Racing League

Plugin to manage and present prediction (fantasy) competitions for motor sport events.

This Plugin is designed to manage motor sport races and championships and allow users to predict the outcome of the races. Points are awarded based on users' predictions and the actual finishing order of the race.

Most motor sport competition types are supported. Basically any event that involves qualifying, then a race with a finishing order. For example, Formula One, NASCAR, Moto GP, even possibly cycle races.

These types of prediction games are often referred to as Fantasy competitions.
