Noticed the colours last night.. I wonder what happened with Marlborough.. it's gone off the suits as well. Initially I thought they were in a non tobacco country but everyone else had normal sponsorship. They look like Castrol Colours.
I wonder what that means for the sidici racing colour scheme, will they look like Rainmans or whoever sponsors them when they are released?? What if it's Camel by then?? How many people will rescind the order if they are yellow??
I think I remember reading that tobacco companies are only allowed to have their names on racing vehicles a certain number of times per country. So if Marlboro sponsored cars have already used up their Italian quota, then the bikes would have to remove the advertising. But if Camel hasn't used up their Italian appearances quota, they are allow to run their colors at the race.
I don't know if that is the case this time ot not. Or even if that theory is really accurate. I read about that last year on the internet, so a grain of salt and all that...
Pfffttt... read it on the internet.... like THAT would be true.. hahahaha
Thanks Hickey, hadn't heard that.. all the rest of the tobacco deals seemed to have been on show and usually when they can't advertise they still have the white stripe. No sorry Hickey, I think it's more serious than that.
