Tobacco advertising

the issue of tobacco advertising on cars has always
facinated me. In countries where this is not allowed, the
lengths sponsors go to  are quite ingenius to keep their
product noticable.
The only ones i can remember are Marlboro, who use the
readily identifiable red chevron and using the same
lettering schange Marlboro to Mclaren, which from a
distance looks lioke it still says marlboro. The othe rone
is Rothmans which spell out RACING instead, but one can be
forgiven at a glance for thinking it still says ROTHMANS.

are there any more devices? Please let me know.

also, As a trainee english teacher, can anyone think of any
ways of using F1 as a stimulus for classwork for kids aged
11-16? (related to the subject english)?

Cheers,

My favourite would have to be West, old Zakspeed sponsor, changing the
lettering to East.

I always liked the way Camel in one country omitted the letters but still showed the camel
in profile, or in another country, just 'blocked in' the letters, and you could still read the word
Camel. Can anyone tell my why Williams in (France I believe, just has gold and blue
horizontal bars, and 'Racing' in England and Germany). Are the French laws more restrictive
(right, like I really need to ask that question !    ;)

Don't let them read this newsgroup, for a start - it'll play hell
with their spelling! (looks like it's already had that effect on
you) :-)
