  1. Which Sébastien has more WRC titles: Loeb or Ogier?
  2. You know I love a Murray Walker quote. So, finish this one: “Colossally, that’s…”
  3. Which manufacturer partnered with an oil giant, a relationship that had already borne fruit in other projects, to produce a MotoGP bike? They then unceremoniously left the project after its launch, but before it had raced a single lap.
  4. In 1958, ’59 and ’60, the same rider won both the 350 and 500cc titles, a double-hat-trick of some renown. Who was it?
  5. Which manufacturer initiated a genuinely unique supercar project, using its F1 engine and tandem seating, in the early 1990s?
  6. Which driver did Richie Stanaway partner to Bathurst 1000 victory in 2023?
