Does anyone know how they resolved the conflict with Richard Burns being sponsored by Nicorette ? I cannot imagine that they would allow him to promote the patch on his overalls.

That'd be a great conspiracy if PhillipMorris owned Nicorette.

From what I could find online, Nicorette is made by a pharmaceutical company called GlaxoSmithKline. Didn't see any link to a parent company from their website. If they are owned by PM, it must be buried pretty deep.

PM does NOT own Nicorette.

I used to work for PM and I know for a fact that they want nothing to do with that. Since a Glaxo does own it


wow the new pugs look like they have a new aerodynamic package to.

Guess I need to tame my vagaries, else punk my jokes with a 'J/K' stamp. Im sry anyone went through the effort to debunk the PM Glaxo relationship; it was a joke...

I've gotten email confirmation from Jo Burns that Richard's association with Nicorette will be ending due to Marlboro being title sponsor for Peugeot.

I like the new livery. It's very simple and classic.

I say who cares if big tobacco sponsors motorsports. It's good money and if you're smart, you won't smoke anyway.

I bought some (555 smokes once...I gave them to my friend to smoke and I kept the pack. I also did that with a pack of Mild Sevens.
