I'll get the wall of shame rolling with a 3.

(made up of 2 1pt answers and 2 1/2 point answers for knowing one of the two drivers in questions 8 and 10)

Another good quiz TBY. :thumbsup:
Good effort TBY, I love the links :D

3 1/2 for me this time, one of my better efforts as well :D Got my half point for
Q10 :)
MD, I put that bit of your post under a spoiler button. Don't want to go giving the others the answer now do we. You've got the highest score at the moment.

Haha CaT.

I must remember to use those spoiler buttons! Bit gutted as I have been searching for the opportunity to use one for ages. Now I missed my chance :)

Excellent stuff TBY :thumbsup:

However, with a paltry 1, I think I'll stick to running websites :D

In a sneak preview of the upcoming quiz stats I can reveal that your Mode average would actually be 1. :D

2.5 for me, although at least one was a complete guess.
A pretty poor 1 1/2 for me

Thanks TBY, the links into the various key moments in the site were brilliant :thumbsup:
