  1. 1. SAE IN ASSOCIATION WITH QUIZ CLUB PRESENTS THE MOTORSPORTS QUIZ
  2. 2. QUALIFYING
  3. 3. RULES • 19 Questions(written) • Each carries 10 points • Qualifying total to be carried forward • Multiples of 3 are starred questions • 6 teams qualify to the finals
  4. 4. AND MOST IMPORTANTLY • Quizmaster is Bernie Ecclestone
  5. 5. 1. Jayesh Desai is a 41 year old Surat businessman who is one of the promoters of the Rajhans Group that has interests in textiles, multiplexes and real estate. A transaction of undisclosed amount that he made 3 years back was brought into limelight resulting in huge criticism for the other party, even resulting in comments by eminent writers like Shobhaa de making ironic references to a popular Robin Sharma novel. What transaction?
  6. 6. 2.IDENTIFY X In 1990, a wealthy Japanese businessman, Tomonori Tsurumaki, built an extravagant race track called Nippon Autopolis with the idea of hosting a Formula One race. In 1992, plans were made for it to replace the Mexican Grand Prix. However, these plans failed to materialize. Instead, Tom Wheatcroft, pouncing at the opportunity convinced Bernie Ecclestone to add a race at X to the schedule which was always kept aside since the British Grand Prix was being held at Silverstone instead. What did this result in? Identify X.
  7. 7. 3*.IDENTIFY X The X Calendar is a trade calendar published by the X company's UK subsidiary. It has become an annual publication that dates back to 1964. The calendar is famous for its limited availability, as it is only given as a corporate gift to a restricted number of important X customers and celebrity VIPs. The pictures are generally considered glamour photography including artistic nudes. Publication was discontinued after the 1974 issue as an economising cut-back in response to the world recession from the oil shock. How is X connected to the world of motorsport, considering it recently earned monopoly in the system?
  8. 8. 4. It all started when Paul Torchy died at the site of the Delange Grand Prix in 1925. The next year, Count Giulo Masetti died of a car accident. Solana Moises had qualified the Mexican GP in 1963. However, he classified eleventh for completing 57 laps before his engine failed. In 1976, Divina Galica using it for her maiden drive in F1 at the British Grand Prix failed to even qualify. Since 1976, it has never again featured on the race track. What connects them, something which Pastor Maldonado has decided to take up next year after a slight rule change?
  9. 9. 5. What is the Italian translation of Red Bull?
  10. 10. 6*.RULES FOR WHAT? • The following car is a maximum of one second behind the leading car. This includes a leading car lapping a backmarker. • The following car is in an overtaking zone as defined by the FIA before the race • The system may not be activated on the first two laps of a race. • The system cannot be used until two laps have passed after a restart or safety car appearance. • The system cannot be used by the defending driver, unless the defending driver is also within one second of a car in front. • The system may not be enabled if racing conditions are deemed dangerous by the race director such as rain
  11. 11. 7. X is scored in motor racing if a driver scores pole position in qualifying, the fastest lap in the race and then winning while leading every lap of the race in the same weekend. This significant feat is equivalent to a perfect game in baseball, or a 300-game in ten-pin bowling. To date, only 22 drivers have secured a X. The most recent was at the 2013 Korean Grand Prix, where Sebastian Vettel achieved the feat.
  12. 12. 8. When Dan Gurney won the 1967 race with codriver A.J. Foyt, the two drivers mounted the victory stand. Looking down, he saw Ford CEO Henry Ford II, team owner Carroll Shelby and their wives, as well as several journalists who had predicted disaster for the high-profile duo. What was thus immortalised as a result of his impulsive action just after?
  13. 13. 9*. The 1975 Spanish Grand Prix was remembered as one of the most controversial and tragic race weekends in the sport's history after the death of five spectators who were hit by the crashing Hill GH1 of Rolf Stommelen. The defending World Champion Emerson Fittipaldi was furious about the safety concerns. He did the minimum three laps, but at a very slow pace, then pulled into the pits. On lap 29, the race was halted with Jochen Mass the winner. With the race being declared before the race had reached three-fourths distance, only half points were awarded. What other unique feat was achieved in this race?
  14. 14. 10.IDENTIFY AND PUT FUNDA
  15. 15. 11. Bernd Maylander started his career in karting sport at the end of the 1980s. In the following years he made his way to the Formula Ford, the Porsche Carrera Cup and the original DTM. When the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM) series was resumed in 2000, he was driving for MercedesBenz. He led the 2007 Suzuka race for almost 20 laps and also 26 laps at the 2010 Korean Grand Prix. At the 2011 Canadian Grand Prix he led 28 laps and these are among his most notable ‗performances‘. What is so special about him?
  16. 16. 12*. These glamorous girls can be often seen at the beginning of Moto GP races. For what important job are they hired? [Picture on next slide]
  17. 17. 13.WHAT DIFFERENTIATES? List X Monza, Nurburgring, Zandvoort, Silverstone etc. List Y Interlagos, Brands Hatch, Imola etc.
  18. 18. 14. In 1977 Thierry Sabine got lost in the Tenere Desert during the Abidjan-Nice Race. During this time he decided that it would be a good location for a regular _____, where every amateur of racing life could check his abilities. In December 1977 he arranged an edition of the race with start situated in Paris and the finish line in ______. What?
  19. 19. FAMILY MATTERS
  20. 20. 15*.IDENTIFY X AND Y On 28 September 2008, on the fourteenth lap of the Singapore race, the Renault R28 driven by Y crashed into the circuit wall at turn seventeen, necessitating a safety car deployment. This allowed the other Renault driver, Fernando Alonso, to make an early pitstop and subsequently gain the advantage to win the race after starting 15th on the grid. X described his crash at the time as a simple mistake. After being dropped by the Renault team following the 2009 Hungarian Grand Prix, X alleged that he had been asked by the team to deliberately crash to improve the race situation for Alonso, sparking an investigation of Renault. His father X was a three time F1 champion.
  21. 21. 16.IDENTIFY X AND Y In his Ranji cricket days, X had introduced Trinidadborn Robin Singh to cricketing opportunities in India. He progressed from the little known races on the rudimentary tracks of Sholavaram to the international circuit. But there was a brief period when he was disillusioned with his career, quit to play cricket for Tamil Nadu and in the Essex county league. However, he made a comeback and in the mid-'90s was even offered a position as a test driver for Formula One Team Pacific Racing. X was the first manager of the A1 racing team of India. His son Y was the lead driver alongside Karun Chandhok.
  22. 22. 17. X was born in Solna, Stockholm County, Sweden. Representing Finland, he was the winner of the 1982 Formula One World Championship. He was the first Finnish driver to compete regularly in the series. Also, one of the people who earned the nickname of Flying Finn. His son Y holds dual nationality of Finland and Germany. For the 2010 Formula One season, Y joined the re-branded Mercedes team. Since then, Y has enjoyed his most successful period, winning three Grands Prix and earning four pole positions.
  23. 23. 18*.IDENTIFY X AND Y X is the only driver to win the Triple Crown of Motorsport— the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Indianapolis 500 and Formula One World Championship. His son, Y is the only son of a world champion to win the title. X won the title in ‗62 and ‘68, while Y won it in ‗96. With the world championship at stake in the ‗94 season, Schumacher's Benetton slid wide and into the wall while trying to stay ahead of title rival Y‘s Williams causing a controversial crash. Y wrote in a subsequent book: "There are two things that set Michael apart from the rest of the drivers in Formula One - his sheer talent and his attitude. "I am full of admiration for the former, but the latter leaves me cold."
  24. 24. 19.IDENTIFY X AND Y Originally named the Île Notre-Dame Circuit, it was renamed in honour of Formula One driver X, father of Y, following his death in 1982. X was the first winner at the circuit. Y is the only F1 champion from his country. Y won his Formula One Drivers' Championship after former champ Michael Schumacher collided with his car and spun off during the European Grand Prix. This eventually resulted in Michael‘s disqualification. The German newspapers were among the many from across Europe that attacked Schumacher calling him "a kamikaze without honour‖.
