The Lotus name has attracted more attention in recent years for the row over which team gets to use it than their performance on the track.

Of course it wasn’t always that way – the original Lotus won a string of championships and scores of races in the sixties, seventies and eighties.

  1. Ah, how nice to have a Lotus quiz on the day they announce yet another plan to go racing in a major category of motorsports.

    Let’s hope they do better than I expect to do in the quiz then!

    1. As expected, a lousy 4/20!

  2. Damn, was just filling in the final question and ran out of time! Did it again with the same answers and only got 10 though. That 0 is going to really hurt my place in the top 10 on the leaderboards…

    1. welcome to the club! I thought I’d rather let the questions I was unsure about be this time, although scoring low is not really helping either :-)

  3. Oh man, this one is going to be difficult…. I know nearly nothing of the lotus years.

    1. indeed, the quiz really is about Team Lotus, not any of the new incarnations.

      1. Yep, and the verdict is out : 1 out of 20… Ouch.

  4. 2 out of 20 – GET IN!!!

  5. Mind went blank. Only 3 and I have a DVD on Lotus at home. Shamefull

  6. Aaaargh, that was tough. I’m OK on drivers, but when it comes to car numbers I’m in lots of trouble, usually serious…

    1. Nice one :-)

  7. I got 6. found it awful tough

  8. A shameful 0, although my first season of proper F1 was 2007. I would like it if someone could tell me some good documentaries where I could see more of the mid years of F1.

  9. now I’m really confused, as this was the most brutal quiz in F1Fanatics history, and I was born in 1985, so have mainly only “second hand” memories of Lotus, and still this was my first 20/20.
    and I think that question nr. 16 was tricky.

    1. Wow, congratulation then with that superb result @andrewt!

  10. 3/20. I know very very little about F1 from before the 1990s, and even less than that from before the ’80s.

  11. Well that was truly appalling! A spectacular 2 for me then! But i’m glad I kept my dignity by not looking it up, as others have done! Colin Chapman himself wouldn’t have got 20/20 on that!

    1st quiz and i get a score of 1! i’m sure this will be a trend though and by my twentieth quiz i will get 20 points, it’s only logical…

  13. Forgot the timer and run out of time when I had just entered the last answer and was about to press the submit button… 13/20 on the rerun, not very good.

  14. 0/20 :D

    At least i’ll never do any worse.
