Travelling north on the M5 near Taunton yesterday, I passed an Eddie Stobart trailer being towed by a BrawnGP liveried tractor unit. Sponsorship deal afoot? The Brawn car would look good in Eddie's colours...

Oh do try and keep up.....

Due to concerns about Donnington, teams are getting ready for the "Torquay GP"...

Maybe they were doing straight line tests down the promenade!

You are not a photocopy house, but I thought the organisation was supposed to be on holiday, like all the other F1 teams are supposed to be ... :p

They are actally Stobart tractor units in Brawn GP colours . I am not aware of Brawn taking delivery of 09 plate Merc Actros units also , the Brawn tractors all bear the legend "not for hire & reward"

I believe a mixture of Dafs & Mercs are used by Stobarts for Brawn...

:smoking:

I actually spat my drink out when I read that. Bill for laptop cleaning to follow...

I got a tweet from BrawnGP saying they were all back at work on Monday. I make that two weeks.
