Hi Saudoso,

 

Some of our adverts are served out by remnant networks (ie. once we've sold advertising campaigns, the ad slots which are left get served in this way). If the advert isn't related to motorsport or cars in some way, then it's probably being shown to you by one of our networks. We never get to see most of these adverts as some of them will be targetted to users in some way (based on country, but also on other factors that companies such as Google use to decide which ads to show) 

 

We've got some fairly strict rules on what sort of remnant ads are allowed to be shown. In particular, nothing pornographic or dishonest is allowed, neither are ads which are offensive in some other way that makes them unsuitable. If this banner is particularly bad then I can look at getting it added to the block list. Can you E-mail me a screengrab if you see it again?

I have no choice but to take this as a compliment. At least reausrance of my sanity if not praise for my smarts.
