But this would be a lie. For who, out of Auto Trader, Autocar, PistonHeads, Auto Express, The Daily Telegraph, The Southern Group of Motoring Journalists or The Sunday Times, wants to be the team that clearly knows nothing? About cars or anything else.
And so, underneath the rosy glow of bonhomie and pints of IPA, lurks a bitter competitive streak. I join The Daily Telegraph team each year, and this year, as usual, we managed a respectable mid-table ranking. I even called a tail-light correctly in the picture round, in the face of opposition from my team: everyone else who thought it was a Subaru WRX, when it was clearly a Mercedes R-class, the fools (there you go – I’ve already given you one answer).
Let’s see if you can do any better… Note that I’m giving you multiple choice here… we just had to guess the answer.
