I found one below, just never saw it race  :D :D

Seriously, I found this quote on Sportscomet:

Lotus used to write "Lotus" instead of "Camel" (1987/88/89/90) and Jordan used to put their drivers' names instead of Benson & Hedges (1998+), for example. McLaren and Ferrari were the first teams to use the "bar code", Once they had ended their relationship with Marlboro, McLaren also replaced the name "West" with "East" in protest at the advertising ban before the sense of humour police at the FIA made them stop; they subsequently used their drivers' names instead. BAR (British American Racing) got around the advertising ban by naming their team after their tobacco sponsor, British American Tobacco.

"No Matter how little money and how few possessions, you own, having a dog makes you rich."

I just saw on PG's Facebook page he won the competition this year. Man, the youngsters are kicking the "oldsters" butts lately! I didn't even try this year as I didn't know the first 2 questions and didn't want to rely on searching the Internet for the answers. Next year I'll use the Internet though just for fun as it seems a good time was had by all. Thanks Wizzo!
Kimi's back! Future double WDC.

Congrats PG Gabriel on winning, I had no idea what it was. A great prize but it sure did cause some pain and suffering. :crazy:

And thanks to Wizzo for a great comp.
I can't think of anything to write here.
