Greenpeace trolling the Belgian Grand Prix

Banners placed secretly to steal the show in Spa

Sipi is a fairy who hangs above us like a huge, ever-smiling, men’s fragrance-smelling umbrella. He can be called anytime, anywhere to lend a helping hand, and he’ll be there in an hour with one of his Transits for sure. A dangerously maniac car collector (the street in front of his house is full of his vehicles), a radio-control and model car freak, Sipos is a Swiss knife made of human flesh. Totalcar is just one job amongst his zillion occupations, but he endears it the most. Lives with a girlfriend and two dogs.

Will polar bears say thank you for this?

Not many have seen this video released a few days ago. What happened could not even be seen during the live TV coverage. The action of Greenpeace is not only interesting because of their message or the fact that they used one of Shell’s most important PR events to shame the company for being a global evil, killer of innocent polar bears. The funny thing is that the activists used electric telescope antennas used in cars to erect the banners, activated by remote controls. They had smuggled the banners to the podium days before. The not so funny thing is that there could just as well have been other devices hidden on the podium, to be activated by other extremists’ remote control. And seeing those devices being activated would give another meaning to the headlines “Activists bombed the F1 ceremony”. It is clear that there is an urgent need for improving security on such events.

Hearing the F1 fans booing as the banners go up makes us wonder whether it was really an effective action or just pure trolling.

Is this the largest one you have?

While the engine power is melting the asphalt under the tyres, the suspension does a superior job cancelling all road roughness and speed bumps. I have never quite experienced anything like this.
