Do you know your F40 from your F50? Can you identify a DeLorean by its rear tail lights alone? If the answers come easy, you could be in with a shout of being crowned Britain’s biggest car nerd of the year, at this May’s Leasing.com London Motor & Tech Show.
In a drive to deliver family and petrolhead entertainment, the Motor Show organisers have teamed up with automotive community web site DriveTribe, to create a celebrity versus public Car Quiz showdown.
The competition will see entrants whittled-down via a series of online quizzes hosted on Drivetribe.com, with 5 qualifying contestants invited to a live show finale.
After a final round of heats at the show, one eventual finalists from our online round, will join one winner from on the day and go up against a team of established motoring journalists, as well as TV presenters Tim Shaw and Fuzz Townshend, stars of TV-show Car SOS.
Compering the live quiz final will be Mr Wheeler Dealer himself, Mike Brewer, presenter and host of Discovery Channel’s Wheeler Dealers, a man who has spent a lifetime researching cars as both a car dealer and an expert on car buying and selling.
With Tim Shaw and Fuzz Townshend bringing their encyclopaedic knowledge of car engineering and classics, being crowned Britain’s biggest car nerd will be no easy feat. Whoever is victorious will claim a true badge of honour:the nation’s most trivia-charged petrolhead.
To take part, wanna be nerds can follow this link to round 1 of the quiz on Drivetribe or head to the show on Saturday the 18thMay.
Each week for the next three weeks on Drivetribe we will deliver a fiendishly difficult car quiz. Based on the combined results of these 3 quizzes, the top 20 will receive a free ticket to the Leasing.com London Motor & Tech Show and the top 5 will be invited to join us on Saturday the 18thMay for a live head to head quiz to determine the winner, who will join the celebrity final later in the day.
If you miss out on the finals via our online quiz, a further “Live Qualifying” round will take place with guests from the crowd invited up to take part on the morning of Saturday the 18thMay. The winner of this round will join the final too, where both our winners will go head to head against some established celebrity car “nerds”.
The winner of the final will receive a VIP goodie bag, as well as a fantastic trophy, signed by all our celebrities.
Commenting on the quiz, Drivetribe CEO Jonathan Morris said, “DriveTribe’s quiz platform has generated over 35 million quiz entries in the past twelve months alone, so you can expect a tough field of competition. We will hold three rounds of heats on DriveTribe – on subjects including British Cars, Classics and automotive greats – with leading contestants able to see where they appear in a leader-board of entries”.
Andy Entwistle, CEO of the Leasing.com London Motor Show added, “this year’s show has been designed to be more interactive and entertainment-packed than ever, with amongst other things, a series of main stage events, alongside Live Arena demonstrations of driving skills. Given Tim and Fuzz host a competing show to Mike Brewer’s Wheeler Dealers, you can expect plenty of natural rivalry and banter. All three are consummate entertainers, hugely popular with their audiences and well known for their mix of humour and petrolhead knowledge”.
Entwistle added, “aside from the family entertainment, the show will also be a big hit with car buyers, with opportunities to get up close and personal with a comprehensive range of vehicles for sale and, in some cases, opportunities to test drive vehicles.”
The show, which has Leasing.com as its main sponsors, takes place from 16-19 May at London’s ExCel Arena, with tickets on sale now. Adult entry costs just £20, with free entry for children under 16. You can buy tickets here: https://thelondonmotorshow.seetickets.com/tour/the-london-motor-tech-show/
