  • With that 'Huski' logo on the back of the car they better make sure the car is competitive or the epithet 'Dog of a car' will universally come to haunt them.  :D

    Maybe that would in turn have netted the Cadbury sponsorship, so they could have free Freddos every weekend for everyone?

  • Huski Chocolate at McLaren, James Harvest Sportswear at Williams...

    I know I'm getting older and less 'with the kids' than I would have been a few years ago, but is it me, or are sponsors in F1 getting more and more obscure?!

  • At least Williams are sponsoring getting fit, McLaren are sponsoring getting fat. It's a bit ironic really, tobacco advertising was banned at the end of 2006 as it is bad for our health and is the most avoidable cause of cancer, but now they use a chocolate drink which could make us obese which is the second most avoidable cause of cancer  :DntKnw: Just can't win with these people hehe

  • I don't think we have that over here. Is it anything like Yoo-Hoo?

    I thought “the ultimate chocolate drink for adventure and expedition” the frozen chocolate vodka martini.

  • Back in the day, I had no clue what Parmalat, or Gold Leaf, or Candy was. Took me years to find out.

    Parmalat sounds like something a Dentist would put in your mouth, Gold Leaf sounds like a premium Tea Bag and Candy, well I simply think "John" when I hear Candy!!

  • I know Candy make white goods, washing machines and the like, instead of being the object of Lou Read's vocalised fantasies. 
     


    Gold Leaf is a rolling tobacco product.

    But Parmalat still has me beat.  :-[  Legend says it's some sort of Dairy based industry, not come across it in Britain though.  :DntKnw:
