    How tantalising - Amazon has just 1 case left, but the seller doesn't ship to here.

    Surely they'd ship to one of you though . Wouldn't they? Surely...

    I'm beginning to wonder if this is Russia's most elaborate way to influence American voters. Surely Haas did some sort of check on them?

    Then again stranger things happening, like giving a shipping contract to a company with no boats.... or a history of shipping.

    Nah. To be honest I'm not actually wanting to try the stuff. I was just curious to find somewhere other than the Rich Energy site that sells it. Rich Energy could just forward each order through to Dave in the warehouse "Dave, we've had another order. Can you buy some more Red Bull and Monster and Ribena, and mix up another batch of Rich Energy?"

    Has anyone bought it direct from Rich Energy and had a taste?

    I presume someone on the TV has done that?

    I have seen a Youtube F1 person claim to have bought a can, when it was briefly available on Amazon....it tastes like Red Bull.

    Hahaha. The Rich Energy guy has played a blinder!

    Ok, I'll put this out there - any of you guys want to buy a crate and tell us what it's like, I'll pay.

    Preferably via some outlet other than the Rich Energy site, although I suppose all the orders will eventually go through to Warehouse Dave.

    They are on Amazon uk in crates of 24 for about £20. Coming in stock in a week or so I think. If you look at the images one can is on it's side and you can see the sell by date was dec 2018!!!! Still seems weird that people have not seen let alone drunk any.
    Tha amazon listings have some funny comments, especially from someone called Vjay!!!

    Good heavens no! My body's a temple etc. And I'm too old for energy drinks.

    Thanks for the generous suggestion, but I was just offering to foot the bill if someone else wants to try that stuff. It seemed like a good way to see whether it actually exists, without having to actually drink the rubbish myself. :D

    Hmmm. It seems I'm happy to pay for someone else to poison themselves. I thought I was better than that.

    The Rich Energy guy came out and said he wanted to take on Red Bull in the drinks sector and beat them.

    I mean, its not like anyone else has tried that................and I'm sure the lack of choice in the so called energy drink (see liquid chemical laden caffeine concoction) market will mean their sales will just go through the roof and Red Bull will just give in straight away.............

    https://www.autosport.com/f1/news/141420/exbar-team-owner-bat-back-to-f1-with-McLaren

    Looks like non-smoking is the new smoking for F1.

    BAT clearly feeling the need to go up against Philip Morris in the artificial cigarette trade. Will this mean the likes of R J Reynolds (Camel etc) and some other big tobacco companies coming back into the sport?

    It seems strange that tobacco and alcohol are all but banned now because of various laws, but downing chemical drinks and inhaling chemical products is now all the rage. Good old F1, it will take money from wherever it comes from.

    New Williams colour scheme is a bit meh. It's like they tried to do something but couldn't afford the paint to put it on properly. White and off blue.

    Even the name Rokit Williams racing...

    It will also clash with the merc if they keep the same livery.

    This seems like another sponsorship deal that's a bit weird. Search for Rokit and you get https://www.rokit.co.uk/ which is a retro clothes store!!! Not some tech company. Seems like if you do a bit more digging https://rokitphones.com/ comes up with coming soon mobile phones with 3d and no glasses!!!
    Seems like their brand name is a bit too close to the vintage clothes shop!!!! I bet the clothes shop gets a few more hits today!!!!!1

    Seems like the second deal in a couple of days with almost unknown companies!! I do hope Hass and Williams got a load of cash up front for these deals as the sponsors are getting lots of publicity.
