Can I just ask, why is this quiz PM answers only?

Don't you trust us? :D
I'm picking up on a suggestion that was made last year by cat, for an official championship of Quizziness, around the time he wrote the German Quiz. If it is an official championship, it would be easy for someone unscrupulous to say "10" and claim the prize.

I trust most of the people who regularly post to post their correct zeros... (lol) but with 200 members and open entry, you can't trust everyone.

Don't see your entry in my inbox anyway, Brogan!

After initially misreading the instructions, I eventually pm'd TBY with the correct format of answers and I somehow got one right! :o

Wooden spoon, here we come! :victory:

I can't believe you and GM scored less than I did to be honest. I know you guys knowledge of F1 is far greater than mine.

I had to make educated guesses to a couple of the answers. I miss-read one question. I know I've got a couple way off as well. I know I got both the blue questions right and the Lotus question was always going to be a winner.

I guess it's one of those things, you eitehr know the answer or you don't. Zonta's qually position for example :dunno: not a clue.

Only teasing CaT - it's like when you watch a quiz show on TV and you know the answer to an "easy" question and the contestant doesn't; it's only easy if you know the answer!

Yes chap.

Apologies that I didn't enter but I really am up to my eyes in plastering/decorating/DIY and have little or no time for anything else.

Great Quiz TBY.

:1st: Thanks to several Lotus related questions I think that helped.

Also knowing that Taffy VT's only pole came at Monza was a bonus. :thumbsup:

Looking forward to the next one.

Come on every one else, it takes a fair bit of time and brain power to stick these quiz's together so do TBY a favour and put an entry in next time.

:goodday:
