I think its very relevant. Kids at this SMP watching Lightning then at Sandown asking where Lightning is and then being explained too that its now the woodstock car. Very relevant

The thought police are coming for alcohol advertising, just matter of time

Kids can't buy alcohol Peckstar. Parents need to parent.

While I understand the point being made, if your dealing with kids young enough to buy that it's "lighting mcqueen" running around out there, wouldn't you simply say he isnt racing this weekend and then take them to the kids zone...

My apologies.

What I should have written was that kids WON'T be able to make a connection between this, and the regular #19 livery.

Bingo.

I don't think most kids are really going to be interested in having the concept of commercial arrangements explained to them. It's hard enough with some members on here.

People need to find the negatives in everything.

THis livery has been doing the rounds lately, been racing in China as well:

I think it's a great initiative. It picques the interests of the younger generation.

I'd rather my 7 year old follow the Lightning McQueen car, as opposed to the Shell cars that she's familiar with

This looks great! Numbers on the side too, that is a big plus. My neighbour's young son is right into the current Cars 3 merchandise; I look forward to telling him Lightning McQueen will be racing next weekend! Has the potential to do well as a scale diecast too.

I don't buy into the whole Cars livery being associated with a liquor brand thing. It looks good, kids will love it, and then it will be gone.

Hopefully a few extra youngsters will be drawn into the gates at SMP, and then maybe give the series some new young followers.
