After a suitable pause, it’s time for the knockout phase! Thanks to The Harbinger of Nothing for the suggestion for the title of the round.
We have 32 qualifiers, so the first thing to sort out is a suitably complex way of doing the draw. As there turned out to be a William Hill sponsored race at Newton Abbot today, it seemed a shame not to use that.
…and here is the draw it produced.
