Which track is that?

Postby gkaytaz » Thu Feb 08, 2007 10:29 pm

Since we are gonna be trivia-less for a while I have decided to try and setup one to keep us all busy until Melbourne :)

The concept is very simple. It works similar to Ed's trivia about drivers. Only this time you are supposed to guess which track I am talking about.

Rules/remarks:
1. The questions cover the period between 1950 and the present day (basically since F1 was called F1).
2. One guess per person per hint please.
3. All guesses to be posted in this thread.
4. If you do not know the full name of the circuit you may use the GP name and the location (for instance "Albert Park" or "Australian GP, Melbourne" are both valid, whereas just "Australian GP" won't work)
5. Correct guess after the first hint will score 5 pts. After the second it'll be 3 pts. After the third and final hint the correct answer will score 1 pt.
6. Unfortunately no prizes except the pride and fun that comes with the game...
7. Have fun!!!

I thought the first hint mentioned only 13 races then I read it again and it is over 13 races :oops:

I also think Imola is the right answer. Estoril was close to the mark :D

It is interesting being on the other side of the fence :shock:

8. It has undergone a few changes due to some crashes including one by Rubens Barrichello.
9. Last winner is M. Schumacher, last pole position belongs to M. Schumacher, driving a Ferrari.
