It is endlessly entertaining and is the only Mahjong game to feature an Agatha Christie murder mystery.

Uh-oh! What happened? Did you break down on your way around those tricky questions? Did you take too long at the Piston Cup pit stop? You’re not the most sharp-eyed viewer of Cars 3, but don’t worry. Just watch the movie a few more times and take the test again. We’re sure you’ll race up to champion status if you keep trying… Vroom!

 

If you correctly answered 11-20 questions…

Nice work, Fritter fan! You’ve not raced into Pole Position with these results, but you’re moving in the right direction. Why not take the quiz again and see if you can do better the second time around? Hopefully, you’ll work your way up to a Piston Cup win on your next circuit. Ka-chow!

 

If you correctly answered 21-30 questions…

What a champion! Are you best buddies with McQueen, Mater and Mack? Well, you should be with all your expert knowledge of the movie and the crazy Cars crew. You deserve a trophy for your efforts. In fact, why don’t you celebrate your win by watching your favorite film? What’s that? Cars 3, of course!
