Moto GP trivia questions
I have been home with a Flu for a week and my librarian wife provided me with a great selection of motorcycle related books to keep me company.
I ran across some facts that I found interesting and thought it might be fun to test everyones general race knowledge.
I have to confess I wouldn't have been able to answer more than a couple.
1-Who was the first European rider to race a Japanese factory machine outside Japan? What year?
2-Who was the oldest rider to win a Moto GP in the 990 era?

4-In 2004 Rossi won his first title on a Yamaha. How many podiums did the other Yamaha riders achieve that year?
5-GP has been a world championship since 1949. Only one track has hosted a GP every year the World Championship has existed. What track and where?
6-In the entire history of GP only two riders have become champion without falling off for an entire season. Rossi is one - Who is the other rider?
7-In Moto GP 990 2005 who was the only rider to score points in every race of the year?

10-Only Geoff Duke, Val Rossi and one other rider won titles on different makes of motorcycles. Of the three only Rossi and the un-named rider won on two successive years. Who was the third rider?
