Energy drinks + Cardio = Increased risk of Heart Failure/Stroke
Those fuel cans can run miles.
I just started to search some info about Rich Energy.
Trying to open their official site gave the following message from my browser(pic).
But then I found a discussion about Rich Energy at Autosport.com:
You can order energy-drink with whatever print you want on it. Directly at soda-breweries.
Even small quanitites, for those of you who want to sponsor a Simracing team.
I'm seriously starting to have a "Breaking Bad" deja vu.
Seeing the sales pitch on the RE website, there is no chance they may take off one day. It is canned pompous marketing fluff miles away from the fun stuff used by RedBull, Monster and the like. I wonder whose money goes into this economic nonsense.
Their rejection of his offer seems like one of WIlliams' better moves over the last couple of years
It wouldn't surprise me if that was the actual plan. The amount of rebranding that goes on is insane. I wouldn't buy expensive stuff until I know a lot about it because I'd say the vast majority of it is just the cheap **** in a fancy bottle.
Whyte bikes who, through its current owner ATB, took Rich Energy to court over its logo, was founded by Jon Whyte who was previously a Benetton F1 design engineer.
In the court it came out that maybe, possibly, approx. 3 million cans had been sold over the years.
To be blunt, this goes nicely in with Haas himself. It's not like Gene Haas went to court and was jailed for nothing. What he did was arguably worse, and he got off a bit lightly. However that didn't hurt the company, so this won't hurt it either. Don't worry about that
so Rich Energy isn't even a real person?
They are empty only because Grosejean has drink them all.
That explains his recent form.
Haas the drink ever been sold anywhere?
Yes, I always find it misleading when you see a driver on the grid drinking from a bottle with an energy drink logo on it. Verstappen certainly doesn't drink Red Bull before a race.
A year ago, there was a big tragedy here in Quebec. A teenage girl drank two cans of a product that mixed alcohol with a "energy drink"-like beverage. She got so drunk she passed out and fell in a river, where she drowned. That beverage specifically targeted teenagers and yound adults: it had a "cool" name, a colourful can and the taste of alcohol was hidden by the high amount of sugar. Even though the legal drinking age is 18 in Quebec, she was able to get two cans if this crap. All this to say, I completely agree with your post.
The next sponsor for Haas: Los Pollos Hermanos.
Indeed. Read Perry McCarthy's book if you can find a copy. He was the second Andrea Moda driver. Very funny book.
This whole saga...if true... points to a very big issue for Haas.
We all know the advertising 'real estate' on an F1 car is governed by dollars.
You wouldn't take on a major sponsor without your finance people visiting the various plants and very closely examining the overall assets of such a company.
That would have happened numerous times before one signature went to paper.
Its just how business is done.
