No... 5 is not minutes ... and I'd give the game away if I specified the units!

OK, I drive a Prius and I reckon Toyota are pretty good on alternative fuel and hybrid cars so how about some sort of fuel economy record. I think the long track is about 20km, so........1.5 litres of fuel for a lap?

I seem to remember that there was an electric car setting a record but I don’t know what the 5 would refer to

Number of laps on a single charge? 30.

0,5 liters of fuel consumption per 100km

It was a Toyota Prius, and the record was for fuel economy (although they now probably also have the record for the slowest lap that complies with the minimum speed rule).

I was looking for the answer in miles per gallon, which would have been 698 ± 5 mpg. However, 698 mpg equates to 0.405 litres per 100 km. 0.5 is in the range of 0.405 ± 5 and so speakers-corner gets the ding.

So over to speakers-corner...

My 7:00 was pretty close then. Ish. Kinda...

Paging speakers-corner (Bump. If no new question is posted by 3pm on Monday someone else may jump in.)

Wow. Sorry about not replying I was in Switzerland without any Internet.

Staying with cars. How many parts does an F1 racing car have? I will accept a difference of +- 100 parts

Edited by speakers-corner

At even +/- 100 parts, I suspect that the answer will depend on which car and at what is considered a component. For example, the steering wheel alone may be considered to have millions if each part of each switch is a separate component and each 'discrete equivalent' in any PLC is also. Back in the 1960's, things were simpler. I suspect that an early 1960's F1 car would have had about a thousand parts.

The Information I found was within the last 3yrs and is for the average car. - just as a little hint. I hope this hasnt confused you too much.

I'm going to guess the +/- 100pcs means we're talking about a number in the low thousands (otherwise it'd be less than 1% variance) so will suggest 4,800 parts. And welcome back from Switzerland; I'm off there next month for a couple of hours

Sorry, long way off. I have put a subtle hint in my second post.

By the side - can we meet up in München to talk about 2016 - PM me pls. Thanks

I thought that also. FWIW, I have a suspicion that the answer might have an implied precision much coarser than +/- 100.

OK, to help you along, there are 2 numbers but 5 Digits in all.

I think dodgydaved might be onto something there, so I suggest we play this in the 'Hotter/Colder' fashion. Five digits, two numbers eh? 22,000

25,000?

cold. going up. Sorry about this dodgydave but I live and work in a City where F1 cars are built. Not only that I like F1-racing.

65000...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

Sorry I dropped off there.

Just like I was watching an F1 race.

Isn't F1 the #1 sport for the vertically challenged.

#2 being the throwing of dwarfs.

JoLuc - getting closer. Dont forget 2 numbers but 5 Digits.

87,000?

Almost, you have gone past the mark TheOldfields.

80,000

Spot on. Ding

80,000

Spot on. Ding

next question can you list them all ??????

Sticking with F1, what do these drivers have in common:

Mario Andretti

Antonio Ascari

Jack Brabham

Graham Hill

Satoru Nakajima

Nelson Piquet

Keke Rosberg

Hans Stuck

Gilles Villeneuve

Manfred Winkelhock

Do they all have sons who have also raced in F1? (Know it's true of Villeneuve, Piquet and Brabham.)

I was also thinking along those lines. I know some oft Thema drive indy-cars AS well.

They were all world Champions.

Chequered flag to crb11

They all had sons who followed in their footsteps.

Thanks! A bit of a change of topic now.

Two Beatles songs feature someone fixing footwear late at night. Name either.

Do socks count? If they do then Father McKenzie doing some darning in Eleanor Rigby.

That's one of the two! Ding. (The other is Lady Madonna mending stockings.)

Thank you.

Frank, Jack, Joe, Arthur, George, James and Charles. Who?

Thank you.

Frank, Jack, Joe, Arthur, George, James and Charles. Who?

Pike, Jones, Walker, Wilson, Mainwaring, Frazer, Godfrey.

Walmington-on-sea home guard.

So quick that you just get a D..

All yours.

wow, that was quick.

Well Dad's Army is kind of my specialist subject anyway, onwards:

What would you do with a maulstick?

Painters stick, used to steady the hand

Another quick one, DING....

“Jaws 2” was on TV last night, which has given me the idea for this next question.

Which actor played Jaws?

I know who it is. He was in Moonraker and the spy who loved me. But I dont know his name.

You are on the right track, but no ding for that.

Think that would be Richard Kiel.

Think that would be Richard Kiel.

Ding Ding

Thank you. The three (non fishy) actors who starred in the film version of Jaws were who?

Richard Dreyfus

Robert Shaw

Roy Schneider

Not sure about a couple of the speelings :-)

As you say, a couple of typos but not enough to stop you getting the DEENG.

"You're gonna need a bigger Ding"
