December 23 2005.

Yamaha has announced that the Altadis/Seita’s sponsorship of the factory MotoGP Team will not continue after the end of the 2005 season.

Altadis/Seita has been the sponsor of the Yamaha Factory MotoGP project for the past three seasons under both the Fortuna and the Gauloises brands, during which time the companies shared two world championship victories in the MotoGP class in 2004 and 2005.

Yamaha will announce its 2006 MotoGP program in January 2006.

No idea mate... tea making? tyre shredding? being able to get 31 maltesers in your mouth at one time... who knows

I hate to break it to you mate, but none of those present any real marketing advantages to JIPS ;)

You're a tryer though!
