Anyone catch the new Heinie-akin beer commercial featuring Sir Jackie Stewart? All through it

they have actors portraying him during his F-1 days, refusing offers of beer. At the end they have

the real Jackie refusing a beer, saying he is still driving. He leaves in an F-type Jag. Kind of amusing.

A beer commercial where the subject refuses to drink a beer, passing strange.

If it's the one I'm thinking of, that commercial is about a year old actually..........

People dont realize what a great driver he was. I remember how he would just jet away at the start of the race and after the first couple of laps the race was done.

Yes, and do not overlook the major influence he has had on racing since his retirement.

Jackie Stewart was one of the first drivers to aggressively attack the serious safety issues involving both the cars and

the tracks. Being a Scot, he is at the top of my list of favorite drivers. Along with Archie Scott Brown, who only had one

hand but still was a very successful driver.

I have a T-shirt with that quote on the front. The word crap is extended to imitate the Scottish accent.
