TouringCars.Net Quiz of the year 2020

2020 has been a year like no other in recent history. Against the backdrop of a global pandemic, it was an achievement to even have a racing season at all.

For many, this will have been a year of loss and of hardship. It certainly won’t be a year that we look back on fondly away from the track, but being able to escape into the sport of touring car racing will have provided many of us with a much-needed distraction.

With that in mind, here is our annual quiz of the year; a bumper 20-question edition to celebrate a remarkable year of racing in the context of such adversity.
