The Fastlane Trivia Quiz....Show us your knowledge! (PART 2)

Post by PTRACER » 10 years ago

As per the rules, all threads get locked at 100 pages due to the software being unable to moderate threads more than 100 pages long.

So here we are with The Fastlane Trivia Quiz - Part 2 :wave:

Here's the latest question:
EB wrote:Reviving this one, if nobody minds........

Jim Clark did it 6 times. Nobody else has done it more than twice.

The last driver to do it was Patrick Tambay.

What is "it"?
And the clues so far:
EB wrote:No. First clue - some people (especially Scots) might argue that Clark never did it at all.

No, nothing to do with home wins or pole positions.
EB wrote:OK, I'll tell you the names of the drivers who have done it twice.

Farina, Ascari, Vukovich, Arnoux.

Not really. Vukovich is only there because the answer relates to WDC races.

Has it to with motorsports it self? Or more on a side track? For instance, Senna had his own foundation wich had nothing to do with motorsports it self.

Yes, very much so.

In fact, a noob with a book of WDC race results could get the answer, if they knew what they were looking for.

Win a world championship race where the driver drove the only car entered by the team?

Reasonable guess, but no.

is possible.

He is Scottish, maybe his compatriots were English (British) and therefore 6 times.

:thumbsup: Winner.

Only the Italians, Brits and French have managed it (plus Americans thanks to the Indy 500 - I was counting WDC races but your answer is of course close enough).

The English have done it without Clark's help, but the Scots never have!

Surprisingly, it hasn't happened since the 1983 San Marino GP.

My turn, then...

Apart from Keke Rosberg, who is the only non-Brazilian to compete in a World Championship Grand Prix for the Fittipaldi/Copersucar team?

Very good question, I had to look it up. Hence I won't answer as it's cheating.

He drove once for Copersucar at Monza in 1975.

I'll come again tomorrow, with something tasty.

Or maybe some other time :suspicious:

Let's see, I'm pretty sure about this, if it is the same rules as it's always been.

What place would've Jack Brabham finished in the race at Sebring in 1959, if he hadn't pushed the car over the finish line?
