Autotrivia Quiz – Friday 10 June – 16 June 2011


Last week, I asked what rally had five starters?  Clues: the winner waited 50 km from the finish so that a lavish reception could be arranged.  Three of the remaining cars arrived three weeks later, and one broke down 12 km after the start.  It was the Peking to Paris of 1908, sponsored by the Le Matin French newspaper.  It was won by Prince Borghese, driving a 40 hp Itala and it took him two months to get to the finish.

So to this week.  In the Italian Job (the first one in 1969) apart from the three Mini Coopers there were three other British cars.  What were they?  Hint, two of them were the same model.
