I spat my cornflakes out one morning a few years ago when the front cover of my new Motor Sport featured a JPS liveried Lotus- but with the sponsor's name photoshopped out. Thankfully, sanity has now prevailed, and period livery is featured . Does the Bin Laden sponsorship still appear on historic F1 Williams ? I must check at Silverstone next month ...

Ah, I've posted this reply in the tea break forum because I couldn't remember where I'd seen the question. Sorry to duplicate but here goes:

The MSA has published the following in its e-magazine today:

"There have been several recent instances of vehicles bring presented for inspection or scrutineering with tobacco related advertising. Please remember that tobacco related advertising is prohibited on all competing vehicles. This also extends to support vehicles and the competitor’s equipment, such as overalls and helmet. Please see regulation H28.1.6. The only exception to this ruling is if the specific vehicle can be proven (using its chassis number) to have used the particular livery in period. In such cases it is permitted to continue using the livery, providing that the logos are the original size and colours. Therefore, it is not acceptable to replicate a tobacco related livery on a vehicle that did not originally display that livery."

Relating to Max's post above, but that is so stupid - not Max's comments but the missive from the MSA.


What difference does it make whether it is the original, or a replica or a continuation car. Of course, that doesn't mean that Lotus can wheel out a fleet of replicas, but if one of the original chassis needs to be replaced, what possible harm is there in creating a replacement?


At the end of the day, Joe Public wouldn't know or even care that the car roaring about on display was chassis number X or Y, and they are certainly not going to immediately start smoking because it's a replica car.


The MSA have far more important things that they could be doing, like investing in grass root racing and promoting more "clubbie" events.

The issue comes down to not wanting to be prosecuted for enabling or allowing tobacco advertising. By having such a strict criteria around the continued use of period advertising means that, eventually, all tobacco advertising will be consigned to the museum.

The situation could have been a lot worse if the period advertising had to be removed.

I found that advertising the Brewery and not a specific alcoholic drink was fine, and they paid all my entry fees Click image for larger version
