Badger’s GP Bash kicked off, after some introductions, with our Big GP Quiz where the 150+ strong audience were handed quiz sheets and challenged to answer all the questions below – one team, quite remarkably scored a massive 38/40 and that was “Team Mike Griffin” which included these folks from Twitter: @mike_griffin_f1 @OzoneVibe @TheVanquish and @the_lap_times – an impressive result!  The chaps walked away with Virgin Racing goodies and a bottle of champers, thanks to the Sports Cafe.

In a close 2nd place were “Team Scuderia Smedley” with 36/40 (including @lookingspiffy, @calmbanana, @peachyf1, @tommyb89, and @andonida ) who won some VR merch, some Henri Lloyd gear and very nearly the taste of victory!

Well done folks, hope you enjoy your prizes and now we’re pleased to reveal the answers to our quiz below – a special mention goes to “Team Darryl and Dick” (which included @richardsobey ) who came in last with a rather embarrassing 10/40 – they left happy with a free Ferrari* each and a sachet of Ferrari sugar – well done folks and thanks to everyone else that took part – it won’t be the last ‘Badger’s Big Quiz….’ and now, without further ado, here are the answers….
