teabagyokel - I will, but I'm increasingly less fond of the raw points table, as some quizzes are easier than others, and can't think of a good way to compensate for it. No change to the F1-style points table. I'll upload current standings in a moment.
7 which I was disappointed by. I was a bit lazy on a few questions. I feel better seeing that others struggled too!
