PODCAST: THE V8 SLEUTH TRIVIA COMPETITION!

We did something a little different on this week’s V8 Sleuth Podcast powered by Timken – a round of trivia hosted by the V8 Sleuth himself Aaron Noonan!

We love a bit of cheeky pub trivia here at V8 Sleuth, so we thought running our own trivia competition through our podcast would be a bit of fun amid everything that’s going on.

The V8 Sleuth brains trust put together 20 multiple choice questions to put you to the test.

THE COMPETITION HAS NOW ENDED. SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM TO SEE THE ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS!

And just like a real pub trivia comp, there were prizes on offer to the winners!

Here is what was up for grabs:

1st place: A copy of Ford at Bathurst, plus copies of Falcon Files and Cars of the King

2nd place: A copy of the 2018 Official Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 Annual, plus copies of Falcon Files and Cars of the King

3rd place: A copy of the 1982 Bathurst 1000 on DVD – the full race as it was shown on Channel 7, complete with all the race action you didn’t see during the ad-breaks!

The winners were the first three people to submit an entry with 20 out of 20 questions correct – if nobody got a perfect score, the winners would be the first three people who get the highest amount of correct answers in first.

No multiple attempts were allowed – just like a Top 10 Shootout you only got one shot at submitting your answers! – and only people currently residing in Australia were eligible for the prizes.

Entries closed on May 1, 11:59pm AEST, with the three winners announced in the Jason Bright episode of the V8 Sleuth Podcast powered by Timken released on May 4.

If you’ve only come across this episode after the competition ended, have a listen to the questions, have a crack and see if you can get 20/20 – but no peeking at the answers below!
