GPWizard Advent Competition 2011 - The Winner & The Answers
« on: December 26, 2011, 10:53:32 AM »
The GPW Advent is finally over for another year and although many of you thought it was an impossible task I'm pleased to say that we have a winner!

The correct answer to the phrase was:

SANTA CLAUS LOVES MINCE PIES

Please congratulate Jugirl for providing the ONLY correct answer, proving once more that she is not just a pretty face. She will now be the proud owner of a Sebastian Vettel 2011 Championship Cap.  :yahoo:

The correct answers are as follows, please check them against your own scribbled, chewed and crumpled set of notes.  :DD

1.   A
2.   E
3.   Who qualified 3rd in China 2011? First letter first name = Lewis Hamilton = L
4.   Solve the F1 driver anagram – Races Hill On Rubber = Rubens Barrichello – 5th letter of surname = I
5.   Name the only driver who has started both last and first in the same race? = Markus Winklehock – first letter first name = M (2007 European GP)
6.   When ElioDe Angelis crashed during a test session which driver attended the scene of the crash? = Nigel Mansell – 4th letter of surname – S
7.   In 2004 which city saw F1 cars on its streets in the run up to a GP? = London – last letter – N
8.   Today's letter is Q (changed to P on day 14)

19.    The Bayeux Tapestry depicts a visit from a celestial body that was considered a bad omen in medieval times. What year did this “apparition” next appear? – 1145 (Halley’s Comet) – Add 1+1+4+5=11 + 8 = 19 (19th letter of alphabet = S)
20.     The “Queen of Nuts” is tough to crack. How much pressure per square inch does it take to break her shell? = 300lbs (macadamia) 3+0+0-2=1 (A)

Glad I'm in good company (those of us not able to figure it out).  Congrats JuGirl!!  Nice extra Christmas present, I'm sure.

Mince pies...who the heck knows what a mince pie even is???  Yeeesh, bloody Brits and their silly Christmas sayings.  Who ever said Santa loves them??  Never heard that in my lifetime.  Had Santa Claus fine, but the rest was greek to me...should you really love food?  Better one 'likes' food.  grrrr

Great job Ju, a well deserved win. :good:  I got a couple of words but never came close to solving it.    :(  :'( 

I now need a couple of weeks R & R as 'My Brain Hurts'.  :D

This is what Wizzo has reduced some of us to.  :swoon:
