Sweat Shop Labour
Jaguar has found an underarm deodorant for their workers, which doesn't contain aluminium oxide that leaves a powdery residue on new cars. Bosses at Jaguar's Halewood factory on Merseyside say they take quality assurance very seriously and set up tests. Paint shop workers at the plant volunteered to have sweat samples taken from their shirts to test the deodorant they use. Only three deodorants were found including one that retails for just 99p by supermarket giant Asda. As a result, Asda has agreed to supply 3,000 cans of body spray to the technicians. Andy Adcock from Asda said: "We're pleased to hear our men's body spray is as easy on Jaguar's paintwork as it is on the underarm."
No Bangers Or Mash
On top of the fuel, oil, tyres and clutch spares used by the Formula One team, a vast amount of fuel of a different kind is accounted for by the catering team in the Jaguar Racing motorhome. In a season they get through 28,000kg of meat, 15,000 litres of water, 8,000 eggs, 3,500 sausages, 1,500kg of potatoes, 1,500kg of pasta, 800kg of tomatoes and 750 litres of milk.
