I built questions around certain years and forget to edit majority of them into question numbers. Now editing time is over.
I only scored 2 but it was a good quiz. :thumbsup: The best part is I only got question 1 correct because I found that fact when I did the race write up LOL
Thanks Angel I knew I had read it somewhere recently and was the only reason I got it, got the 6 wheeler and a 50/50 guess on the Schumacher question gave me 3.
Felling better about getting 3 after reading the comments! That was a mix of impossible, difficult and easier questions so thanks Bleu
