Well done Curious,

On the topic of the BAT 7, this was what I put as well, I think AO needs to ensure that questions aren't ambiguous, this is the second competiont I've entered on here where the answer could have been any one of a few options.

Yes this is a criticism.

Enjoy.

I thought this question was great, because it forced me to research something quite interesting. (Rather unlike this month's question).

Yes the BAT 7 returned far more results when you hammered into Google "1954 alfa romeo turin motor show"; however, it was never mentioned alongside the lottery ****-up.

Another few minutes Googling (particularly with 'lottery' as a keyword) and it becomes clear.

The question itself was not at all ambiguous, although the answer was necessarily not obvious.

I demand a recount, legal action and whatever else I can do get the watch despite the fact that I too put the BAT7 down.

Well done to the winner and has someone got the time 'cos my new watch didn't turn up today?

The question didnt even say which Alfa Model it said which model, therefore point taken but its a bit of fun (Or meant to be) and so long as someone provides the answer the judge wanted, then this is above board. Now stop crying and start working on the next competition answer

Yes this is a criticism

For the watch lovers. It's 625 on Alfa accessories, but 'only' 511 (with free ladies watch valued at 130) on the cloverleaf club (Which we can all get free membership too...)

I put Giulietta and didn't win, my google search must have been more in depth than most as I got answer from there.
