looks like it is raining TBhpians in the auto Q.
another Bhpian won the bangalore round held in Msrit.
I also participated in the competition and got around 16 answers out of 25 right.

Congrats mate. I didn't get past the prelims, but nevertheless I won some goodies. Thanks to TBHP for the knowledge I gained.


OT: A lot of participants said they follow TBHP, sure is a good sign!! We are gaining visibility

The level of questions was quite difficult. Questions were based on all possible areas. From identifying a car to naming the manufacturer who was first to bring some 'X' technology to identifying a car/bike commercial etc.. Many Qs were on pre-1950 cars too. Then there were questions from F1, MotoGP and LeMans.

Here's a pic after receiving some goodies (me on the right)

I too found the prelims more tough than the actual verbal round.

Congrats man. I had gone for it last year, and had qualified as well. This year I was too lazy to go I think, I don't remember exactly why. Good luck with the next round.
