It's Heating Up In The Big Town Showdown

Big Town Showdown

We're weeks into the 2014 season of the Big Town Showdown, and Tamworth seem to be sitting pretty at the top of our table.

Our quest to find the West Midlands' cleverest town, city or village continues each morning at 8:40am. The concept is simple, answer 10 general knowledge questions as quick as possible, but, for every one you get wrong we'll add ten seconds to your final time. So far Tamworth have been absolutely unbeatable.

Plenty of you have given it a go, but it doesn't seem to be as easy as it sounds. Here's the leaderboard as it stood over the weekend:

Town Name Time (including penalties)
Tamworth Steph 29.8
Coventry Nicola 35.2 
Kitts Green Cheryl 45.7 
Atherston Dawn 46.5 
Great Barr Stella 46.6 
Blakenhall Fran 50.8 
Edgbaston Rachel 51.3 
Rugby Sara 51.8 
Leamington Spa Joanne 52.6
