Except that TEG is a race track.
Well when you put it like that it makes perfect sense!

And there's a horseshoe on their logo too!
I saw that and must have subconsciously dismissed it. It certainly didn't make me think of TEG being a race track (obviously, otherwise I wouldn't have commented).

View attachment 592633 Thought you guys would like this... Racing NSW are known for having terrible marketing and design etc.

Today they launched a new $7.5m race... its a big deal, one of the richest races on earth...

The name is bad enough, but this is the logo
When the horse carks it the eagle will be right there waiting

Mission what now?



I just spent five minutes Googling trying to find out what "Mission Winnow" was, I assumed it was a new sponsor!

This is all kinds of bad. The mirrored M to make a W is poorly recognisable, the slanted text is also hard to read.

It literally took me more than 5 minutes to realise it is supposed to say "Mission Win Now". And it's all over all of their merch!

It's just a disguised marlboro logo isn't it? It's interesting that it isn't on the kids merch there though, surely for it to be allowed on the cars, it can't be classed as a cigarette advertisement, but it is enough of a cigarette advertisement to not be allowed on the kids shirts and caps?

But it is a new sponsor and it is Mission Winnow.
