did you get this part in the press release:

Known worldwide as “Iceman” for his surgical driving skills and calculated demeanor both on and off the track, Finnish racecar driver Räikkönen is regarded as one of the world’s most successful professional athletes. Perky Jerky joins the likes of Tag Heuer, Oakley and Alpine Stars as a sponsor of Räikkönen’s quest for dominance in yet another motorsport, as he heads across the pond to test the waters of NASCAR.


did they just slip out a little too much? Oakley and alpinestar has never before mentioned as his official sponsor...

did you notice it parters with ICEONE racing...

so Kimi is going to run under the Ice one racing banner in nascar? that would explain the reson KBM didnt have right to his pictures....

YEAH Kimi has sponsors :shhh: I'm glad that Canadian website was wrong when they said he was paying out of his own pocket

So I guess it might be a similar setup to what he has in WRC? He has his own IceOne livery on his car but his car and mechanics are provided by KBM

I don't know, I just don't want to get all happy because Tag Heuer is back, when it is not.
Weren't Oakley and Tag Heuer incompatible? :huh:

Arg! That guy should finally come out in front of a camera and talk! Just a bit, so we can know what's going on.

That's how I read that sentence too, that Kimi is on a quest to dominate a new motorsport (NASCAR) and those sponsors will be joining him ''hmm''

Well I knew that Oaklay does sponsor the IceOneRacing team but I thought it was just the Motocross team! Look at their site and their overalls and you can see the Oaklay sign :)

Never heard of Perky Jerky but it sounds funny :lol:
Kimi Kimi gimme just a little smile :)
