For some reason I'm a big Sir Jackie Stewart fan, so here is a quiz for you guys...

An impressive 2, and it happened at Monaco

5. Jackie suffered a massive crash (including poor marshalling) that led to him taking on the issue of safety in F1. Where did this accident happen, and when? (1/2 point each)
Spa, 1966

6. Stewart would have almost won the 1966 Indy 500. He suffered a mechanical failure with 8 laps to go. Who won the race?

10. Alright, what's his wifes name?
Three and a half, and a third. I'm shit at maths.

That's my best quiz score ever, i think.

Is it three and five sixths?
6½ for me. Forcing myself to read his autobiography obviously paid off! (Seriously, if you feel tempted, enjoy the first half, but stop there otherwise you'll drown under reams of dropped names and Rolex and Ford advertising.)
