NAME THE SHOW

4 This fresh-faced duo are about to change the world. Name the se­ries.

BIKE NAME THE CON­CEPT

5 It’s very ob­vi­ously a BMW boxer en­gine – but it ap­pears to be sport­ing a rather tasty su­per­charger, too. It’s just a pro­to­type at this stage, but what’s it called?

WHAT’S THIS BIKE?

7 Who is this fa­mous ex-racer look­ing sur­pris­ingly hairy?

NAME THE SKYDIVER

12 He’s known as a pro­lific crasher, and there were sea­sons when he seemed barely able to fin­ish a race.

WHOSE SON?

13 Meet Fred­die, he’s the son of a very fa­mous racer, but who?

WHO THIS?

14 He man­aged to do what no other Bri­tish rider has man­aged in the his­tory of mo­tor­cy­cle sport, and shares his name with a cathe­dral-less city.
