Unknown to most BGG'ers until now is the fact that I'm an auto racing fan. Not a total gear-head (petrol-head), but enough of a fan to follow several of the top racing series during the year.

How well do you know auto racing in its various forms? Let's find out and see how you fare with these questions I've put together out of my own, (not so) devious mind.

Try to answer these on your own, without relying on Wiki-Fu. At the bottom is a poll where you can compare your score with others who have taken this quiz.
