Avery Dennison is to sponsor Team LottoNL-Jumbo cycling team for the next two seasons. The team has an extensive fleet of team cars, trucks and busses, which all need to be supplied with the team colours and various sponsor logos.

Avery Dennison has added a further four new colours to its Supreme Wrapping Film range, including two new ‘spark’ films and a really cool looking hidden gold.

Here’s something a little bit different. I got a call from a certain David Bartrum (team principal at the quite famous Motorbase team) who wanted me to add a little flair to the walling within the team’s garage at Silverstone.

We think there is going to be a big demand in the UK for this new ‘Mod Look’ ORAFOL line of premium car wrapping films – ORACAL 970 Premium Shift Effect Cast shade shifter films.

Some say that after making love, he is known to bite the head of his partner, and that he once had full sex with Russell Brand’s answering machine. All we know is he’s called ‘The Original’ GDW Stig, and he loves to wrap racing cars.

The Lotus F1 Team, in co-operation with Warner Bros. Pictures, has created a new hybrid F1 racing machine suitable for a post-apocalyptic future.
