RideSmart Trivia Contest - May 26, 2008 @ TWS (Texas World Speedway)

The track day is about a week away. Looks like weather will be great, and it is guaranteed the track will be a blast. If you were thinking about it, now is the time to get in on the action. Still time and spaces left (although time is ticking, and the spaces are going pretty quick this close to the event).

But, back to our regular programming.
We are happy to bring you another trivia contest, brought to you by the awesome folks at RideSmart Motorcycle School.
This one will close EOD Wednesday. I will announce winning names on Thursday am.

Same deal as the last time. Four prizes:

1. 50% off a track day this season with RideSmart
2. Two RideSmart bike cam dvd credits (for two different Ride Smart track days).
3. Free RideSmart Tshirt.
4. Free RideSmart Tshirt.


The usual will apply. Will collect the answers and the winner will be the one who submits all correct answers. If no one submits all correct answers, we will draw names at the end of the day.
If more than one complete and correct entry is submitted, we will draw winner from between these replies (winner gets prize 1, etc).

Hope this will be a fun one.
Feel free to submit suggestions on contests for the future.
Here we go:


1. Who was the second American to win a world roadracing title?

2. In 1978, after winning IOM Senior TT (and being away from motorcycling for 11 years), a company was so impressed with Hailwood's performance, that they made a street version of his race bike to commemorate the win. What company was it?

3. Which one of these great Australian racers has never won a world championship.
A. Wayne Gardner
B. Troy Bayliss
C. Mat Mladin
D. Troy Corser
E. Casey Stoner (OK. had to put that one in but I hope none of you pick this one....lol...if you pick this, you will be automatically disqualified from the trivia contest...for life).

4. What is the name of the man who followed his father in winning the world GP title?

5. What was Mr. Hailwood's first name?

6. Who invented countersteering?
A. Albert Einstein
B. Valentino Rossi
C. Ben Roethlisberger
D. None of the above
E. All of the above



SO lets see those answers. PM me with your answers.
We will announce winners on Thursday AM.
