Here is the new Trivia -- this was sent to my by Photobug

"Who is the only person to win the 500cc GP world championship and the Formula 1 World Driving Championship?"

*** BONUS QUESTION ***
The man in the first question also won the Isle of Man TT. Who was the only other person to win the Isle of Man TT, the 500cc GP World Championship, and at least one Formula 1 auto race?

WOW, i found the answer, but i had to hunt for it!!!

I dont consider this fair, so i wont give it away, but here is what he Won on:

F1 Championship was in a Ferrari 158
GP500 Chamionship was on an MV Agusta

That is a REAL trivia Question!!!!!

As far as part two, i dont know for sure but im gonna guess Kevin Schwantz.

This probably isn't much of a hint, but I was poking around on the Internet last night and found this little tidbit. The man who won both 500cc GP and Forumla 1 world championships also had his own F1 race team. Guess what, it turns out the man who is the answer to the second question raced for answer #1.

Here's a real hint: Mike Hailwood never won the F1 championship, and Kevin Schwantz never raced F1.

Ok, well, here is the answer for the history Trivia.

John Surtees won the 1958, 1959 and 1960 GP500 World Championships on an MV Agusta. Here he is on artists poster from 1957.


He later won the 1964 F1 World Championship in a Ferrarri-158. Here is a shot of Surtees behind the wheel of his winning Ferrari.

And Mike Hailwood drove for the Surtees F1 team in the late '60s. Mike never won an F1 championship, but these two men pulled off something no other racers ever have. Surtees' championships at the highest levels of bikes and cars make him the best racer of all time, IMO.

Other people won more championships on bikes. Other people won more championships in cars. But no one else has so excelled at both.
