Very interesting results so far. Two tracks have crossed the 100 points barrier, with another four very close.

Just a few more days to vote.

For the next rate, we're going back to the top ten, top five in fact. Because there's so many classic tracks, would anyone like a +40, +39 etc system, or should we stick with the +20, +19 etc one?
