This Toyo Canada contest is so bad that I actually thought about not commenting on it. Yes, we’ve seen much worse, but no matter how you slice it, this is not good work. Now, for a respected tire company, Toyo does make some great tires and, in fact, I’ve raced on some. Toyo is also the official tire supplier for Speed World Challenge, which is some of the most exciting road racing anywhere on the planet.
However. Deep breath.
Ignoring the childhood lesson I learned from Bambi, here’s why we’re not so fond of this contest:
– circa 1996 web technology
– entry form layout
– lack of an opt-in
– there are dead links to any sort of “prize package” description
– “um, where are the contest rules?”
– those colours!
– the dreadful copy (“please press once only”?)
