More cabin spirit with the Nissan R88 at Le Mans

I found some more Cabin Spirit:
This time it is the Nissan R88 #85 which was driven by Kazuyoshi Hoshino, Takao Wada and Aguri Suzuki. You can see Takao Wada smoking Cabin Spirits in the advertisement, would this also mean he got an ashtray mounted in that Nissan R88?

The #85 did not finish. Officially due to engine and gearbox problems, but of course we know better now: Takao Wada was lighting a cigarette Bunta style during the race and missed his shift point. Result: wasted engine and gearbox. ;)

Cabin spirit

Need concentration? Just take a Cabin Spirit!

Tobacco and racing… During the past decades, it sounded as if they were tied together strongly, however during the past few years the public opinion has changed. That makes this 1985 advertisement for Cabin cigarettes look like a bizarre combination! And then the brand name: Cabin Spirit! Inhaling smoke is just what you need in such a tight Formula 3 cabin!

Just imagine sport and smoking! What a great combination! Need concentration? Take a cigarette! Need stamina? Take another one! Sorry, but I can’t imagine this advertising would work nowadays!

However… I quit smoking 4 years ago now but after seeing this advertisement all of a sudden I am really tempted to start again! ;)
