1 Recog­nise this back end? It cre­ated quite a storm when it first ap­peared in 2003 but soon ran out of puff. 2 If the rider’s chain were to snap on land­ing, which pub would be pulling him a con­so­la­tion pint? 3 You may recog­nise the num­ber, but which Brit cur­rently runs with it in the GP pad­dock? 4 This man is the boss of the most fa­mous three let­ters in mo­tor­cy­cle rac­ing. Who is he? 5 This track has 11 turns, but this is the most fa­mous of them all and has seen some epic over­takes in the past. Can you name it? 6 Who do voodoo with this on the back of his crash hel­met? 7 This young head-banger has taken cor­ner an­gle to a new level.

8 This an­i­mal may sound sweet, but is al­ways up for a scrap - just like the rider who uses it as his mas­cot. 9 Who is this cool dude chill­ing out be­hind the wheel?

But which bike’s ex­haust is it? 13 Which ver­sion of this fa­mous Bri­tish bike is this? The more spe­cific, the more points gained! 14 Marc is all on his own at this track, a usual oc­cur­rence as he has made it all his own since he first came here in 2013, scor­ing four wins out of four in the Mo­togp class. But which cir­cuit is it that Marc seems to click so well with?
