MotoGP » MOTOGP QUIZ: 2012 Summer Summary Challenge

MotoGP's two week break might not look like much compared with F1's full month shutdown, but to us it still feels like an age in between the two US rounds at Laguna Seca and Indianapolis. The good news is that it does give us a chance to sneak in one of's midsummer, mid-season review quizes!

We've summarised the year to date with some interesting facts and figures, and a reminder of some of the events that have happened since the bikes first fired up on the grid four months ago.

Did you know that only four riders have led at least one race lap in 2012? Or that the same person has set the fastest laptime in each of the most recent four races? You will after taking a run through the Summer Summary Challenge!

Try to avoid looking up the answers online as you go: Google, Wikipedia and's news archives may hold the solutions if you go looking hard enough, but it won't be nearly as satisfying as digging up the information from deep inside your own noggin.

Let us know how you get on with the quiz by using the comments section to impress us with your triumphs or to admit your absent-minded failings!
