    Default Approval to Use "Aussie Frogs" name?

    Hi all,

    I have mentioned before that I'm entering my '79 Pug 504 in this years Kidney Kar Rally. As a part of the registration process I need to supply a "team" name. I was wanting to use "Aussie Frogs" as the team name, however I thought I would seek approval from the Forum management / members before doing that? Not sure who I should ask for permission to use the name so posted it here.

    What do you think?

    PS: They have allowed me to use "504" as the car number so I am looking forward to seeing the Pug with the number posted on both front doors and a few sponsors logos over it. Will post some photos later on.

    I think the big issue with this would be liability, what would happen if you (or someone else) gets hurt / does some damage to something and decides to foot the blame on Aussie Frogs.

    I think the same stance would be taken as drive days, but ask gibgib as it would be his decision

    Thanks CHRI'S16,

    I was not aware of that. I have now sent a formal request to GibGib, who has already picked up on the thread.

    Orestos...that's be like Schuie' suing Marlboro or is it Shell now if he crashes and injures himself, they are only the sponser and couldn't possibly asume any responsibility. The whole world has gone litigation mad, and everyone is running scared. I say replace the bull bars on all 4wds with lawyers and out of touch judges, that stop it.

    I'll throw the Schui in & say go for it

    We have the stickers on our cars anyway, & it's for a worthy cause.

    Thanks for asking too

    Thanks GibGib,

    Much appreciated. I'll post some photos of the car and keep you up to speed on my progress with this endeavour. I have a few stickers myself that Pugrambo has given me. They will be on the car.
