New Moto Trivia Contest - RideSmart Prizes

Here it is folks. Some moto trivia brought to you by the people from RideSmart.

All rules are explained below:


There will be 4 winners, and the following are the prizes:

1st place: 50% off a track day at RideSmart this season.
2nd place: Free bike cam from a track day at RideSmart this season.
3rd place: RideSmart T-shirt
4th place: RideSmart T-shirt



The contest begins immediately upon posting of this thread.
The contest will run until 11:59pm Wednesday, February 6, 2008.
All winners will be announced on Thursday February 7, 2008 (probably afternoon).

All answers will be posted up after the deadline expires. Winners' Motohouston user names will be posted here too (probably at end of thread since I do not have the right to mod posts after more than 5 minutes).

Prizes will be claimed by contacting RideSmart at 512.469.9491, and providing your Motohouston user name to them.
To win, one must post to this thread stating they are in, and answer all questions correctly in a pm to ciaka.

Make sure you respond in a way that allows me to decipher which answer is for which question.

There are 5 motorcycle racing related questions, plus one question in the 'fun' category.
If there are no correct answers to all questions, we will draw from the list of user names that respond to the thread and pm.
If there is only one response with all questions answered correctly, they will claim 1st prize. 2nd, 3rd and 4th will be drawn from the pool of user names that answer the thread and pm.
If there are many responses with all questions answered correctly, we will draw 4 names from that pool of user names, with 1st prize going to first drawn name, 2nd prize to 2nd name, etc.

So have at it. Gentlemen, start your 'engines' (search engines, that is).



CONTEST QUESTIONS - RIDESMART - DEADLINE: FEB 6, 2008 BEFORE MIDNIGHT:


1. How many race victories did Valentino achieve during the 2006 season despite losing out on the championship to Nicky Hayden?

2. Which historical legend was the inspiration for Rossi's 1997 celebration at the British Grand Prix?

3. Which British rider was killed in a helicopter accident in 2003?

4. How many points did Valentino Rossi score in the MotoGP championship in 2003?

5. How many races did Valentino Rossi win Overall in 2003?

6. What motorcycle school in Texas will be holding a track day on February 11 and March 10 '08 at MSR in Cresson, TX?

So far so good. Participation is good. We have at least 7-10 answers sets so far. Let me know if you guys prefer these types of questions or the usual older types like - what is the best thing that happened to you on a track day - type of questions.

So far so good. We still have until next Wednesday EOD, but looking at the answers, we will have to come up with some more challenging categories.
Great many are in a neck in neck run.

Time is approaching for the contest to wrap up. One more day.
So far a good turn out and many good answers.
Wish you can all win. Wish luck to all of you.
Talk to y'all soon.

There is still time. So anyone wanting in on the contest, feel free to participate. Putting down any answer is better than no answers. No answers will guarantee you will not win.

Excellent. Time is winding down, and I see a good percentage have at least answered most of them right.
They are already talking about having more of these contests in the future as well. The challenge will be getting some good questions, but I am sure we can arrange for some fun and tricky questions.

At the end of today, I will tally up all the people who responded and will look through all answers. Then I will post the answers and will drop in the names into a hat. Do not worry, I do not know any of you in any way (all of you are equally strange to me...lol).

The first name drawn will be for prize 1, second name drawn will be for prize 2, etc, etc.

Then I will contact the winning people with pm with instructions for claiming their prizes.

Please let me know if the questions were way too easy, or way too hard, or just right. It will be a good gauge for future. Thanks to all of you. Stay tuned.
