1999 BAR Formula One Show Car split 555 & Lucky Strike Livery.British American Tobacco bought Tyrrell in 1998 hoping to gain as much exposure as possible for its cigarette brands. The original plan was to run Jacques Villeneuve's car with Lucky Strike livery and Ricardo Zonta's in 555 colours. However, the FIA didn't approve and ordered the team to race in just one colour. BAR painted a zip down the middle of the car, with one half in Lucky Strike colours and the other in 555, and one of the oddest liveries in F1 history was created..Topgear Live Festival.The Melbourne Showgrounds .Flemington. Melbourne, Victoria.13th March 2011.At the heart of the Festival will be a 1.52km, purpose-built track which will weave through the streets and buildings of the showground precinct..The Top Gear Live track, the first ever to be constructed in Australia, will play host to over 120 of the country's best drivers as they take part in a spirited competition to set the fastest Top Gear Live lap..With over 20 corners, ranging from the tight and technical 'Woodchop' and 'Town Square', to the fast and furious 'Power Arena', spectators will have unprecedented access plus the opportunity to get up close with drivers and cars, as well as checking out all the action. Cars likely to be on the track range from the likes of V8 Supercars, multiple Bathurst's 12hr class winners, prototype race cars, historic and modern tarmac rally cars, V8 muscle cars and historic open wheel racing cars..(C) Joel Strickland Photographics.Use information: This image is intended for Editorial use only (e.g. news or commentary, print or electronic).
