Trivia Quiz

Postby spankyham »

Seen this sort of thing on other forums, and, given that we have our fair share of smart-arses here, I'm guessing we'll get some good questions and interesting info.

Idea is simple, someone asks a question, whoever answers the question right is declared the winner (the person asking the question gets to say who the winner is). The winner asks the next question.

Any disputes people just put up their sources/arguments and that can be fun as well. But either way, the person declared the winner gets to ask the next question so we can keep moving on.

Ok, here's my question to kick it off.

Who was the first World Champion to die of natural causes?

During his 10 years in F1, he drove for 5 different teams. For which did he secure their first win?
After retiring from F1, he also completed the Paris-Dakar rally and the Sebring 12 hours. Why were those two a special feat?

My guess was Olivier Panis. 10 years in F1. Drove for 5 teams (includes his time at McLaren as a test driver). Won for Ligier Blonde (I'm counting that as a new team cause it was after Guy Ligier had sold and the team was re-named ... that's a bit of a stretch). Drove in both Paris-Dakkar and Sebring after breaking both legs in bad accident (Canada?).

Sorry about that, I apparently can't count.

Ok

Which are the only two drivers to have won a race in F1, NASCAR and an Indianapolis 500?
