Have not seen that one before GTR. Wonder what that contract was worth. Old advertisments in magazines is worthy of a thread on its own.

Well first up I do recall seeing GTRMagic's avatar on the back cover of (probably) Wheels magazine way back when. Futuristic graphics and all :-)

Where's the mad one where a kid beat Brockie and DJ driving a giant Weet Bix around Sandown???
