I had a longer quiz planned but I lost it, so sorry about that. Any suggestions for Grand Prix next week would be well recieved!
I got 4 (!!!) right. 1967 was easy-I was there. It was the most Mickey Mouse circuit I ever saw. Tilke would have been proud!

For the others, it helps that I am a Prost fan, and feel that he is grossly under-rated by most.
I managed to score an astounding TWO!! :o

OK, they were guesses (Q.6 & Q.8), but hey, I guessed them correctly. So I'm totally gonna claim them as legitimate answers! No-one's gonna take those two babies away from me... oh :no:
Can I bring your attention to this:

3. Post an accurate score!

You all know I have no power to enforce this. I just ask that you mark yourself fairly and post your actual score. Don't be disheartened if the score isn't great, these quizzes are often difficult! If you do want to post an inaccurate score, remember you're only cheating yourself!


Joking, MZR, them points are yours to keep!

Oh goodie! Toys were in pre-launch mode and as I've grown fond of them, I'd be teary eyed to see the toys go, let alone at missing out on the two points!

This appears to suggest that I'm rubbish at these quizzes and .... Oh hang on, you're right. I am rubbish at the quizzes! I think I'll take my two points and walk away quietly... :whistle:
