A new non-Championship quiz

Postby RE30B#16 » Mon Apr 23, 2007 5:56 pm

Here is another non-championship quiz. I think this one may be harder than the first. I hope a few of you attempt it.


01. What driver in what car won in his debut with his brand new team?

02. What year was the last non-championship grand prix staged?

03. Who replaced Patrick Depailler in the Ligier JS11 after the 1979 Monaco GP? [2 bonus points if you know the reason why]

04. What driver finished only one race in his third full season with a win in his home GP? [2 extra points if you know the year and the car]

05. What 3rd entry "star" American driver and Indy 500 pole winner failed to qualify in the same race in which his teammates went on to finish 1-2 in 1980?

06. What car was referred to as "the tea kettle?"

07. In the 1991 Mexican GP, Ricardo Patrese shredded the competition on his way to victory in the most dominant win of his career. What may have helped him finish the race in record time?

08. What was so unique about the 1978 Brabham BT46B that it was promptly banned after its debut? [for 2 more points, how well did it do in the race?]

09. Who was the first woman to finish a GP in the points?

10. Who designed the groundbreaking raised-nose Tyrrell 019 in 1990 as well as the ubiquitous 1982 Ferrari 126C2 and the car in question #1?


Good luck! :twisted:

Thanks. The questions appear to be very hard, much harder than mine, but I will have a look and see if I can somehow make any sense of them. :D

At first glance, some of your answers were spot on. You guys all got one I thought was going to be the killer.

I will post the results next weekend. I hope a few more people try their luck.

Hmm. Given that that reply took 2 weeks to get, the word "soon" makes me feel a tad uneasy :)

Sorry I did not get around to it. Questions way to hard for me and it was happening during a time when life was falling apart rapidly. Have Dad back in hospital next week so who knows what will come. :shock:

Everything will be okay. Besides you still seem to have time if you wish to send him your answers.
