BRITISH MOTOR SPORT INDUSTRY (Amendment 1)
at end add 'but regrets that racing cars, as part of the degrading enterprise culture, are now splattered with crude advertising slogans which match the mobile vacuum cleaner designs which now dominate the racing circuits; and recalls that the term British racing green is an outmoded colour from the days before racing cars became ugly mobile advertising hoardings.'.
