The Challenges Continue


Valued Member
So, back to the Challenges format today. You must have a go at naming all of the people in 5 categories. They will bring points values which add up to 200 per question, and thus 1000. Divide this score by 100 to give the score out of 10 that is standard.

Three names will carry the Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards. They are not the names with the greatest amount of points, but please tell us if you get them by using the relevant smilies with your score, because I think they're the most impressive answers.

Good luck!

Jim Clark is not getting you any points
Andretti and Senna are worth 5 points each

And i struggled with the maths too, you horrible man.
I thought i was doing really well but didn't. Knowing i'm shit at these quizzes makes me feel better though, 3/10 is a good result for me!
I am pleasantly surprised to report 4.69! Most of my points came from the 1979 circuits and Hungary winners :goodday:
Maybe negative points should be considered, because one feels tempted to throw in a thousand names in order to find 10 correct answers:)

Yeah, the idea of putting the amount of answers required in the question is to encourage the competitor to just pick that number of answers in an attempt.

But, to be honest, I can't police how you lot attempt to play these quizzes so I just say do whatever you enjoy.
8.43! :1st::2nd::3rd:

Although I only got a full house on Q2. I tend to immediately head for the obscure answers and, in the process, miss some of the blindingly obvious ones, for example
Rindt for Q1
Hamilton for Q3!
