    There’s a statement somewhere that they’ve “invested in £50 million factory in Austria”.

    Even I can see the grammatical subtlety there.

    I’ve got a few quid in the bank so I’ve invested in a multi trillion pound enterprise (I.e. I have a few quid in a bank).

    I reckon it’s like Camden Brewery and Meantime. It’s nothing to do with how much product you actually make, it’s a brand, and both those were sold for staggering amounts relative to the size of the business (just look at what Fullers sold for recently, and that’s a beer you could actually buy outside a few London pubs). I’ll drink a can of hat flavoured red bull if they dont try and sell out to coke and/or Pepsi asap.

    A £10 investment in a £50m factory is still an investment haha

    Only £1450 for the multipack above.

    Bargain.👍

    Obviously priced not to sell! Reported to Amazon, wonder if they’ll give a toss.

    If there’s any eager beaver detectives out there the company “selling” these on Amazon is as follows:

    Northern Marketing Services Ltd, T/A Kualitas

    Colne Road

    BURNLEY

    Lancashire

    BB10 2LD

    Interestingly there are quite a few different “buying” options for Rich energy on Amazon. At many different price points. All of which come from the same company above. So apparently you can buy a 24 case for the very thick end of £1500, or 12 for £19.99, or 24 for £30 (if you’d rather not spend the additional £1470 for no reason).

    Stinks to high heaven (according to most of the reviews anyway!)

    Er… £1500 will get you 72 cases of 24. A bit under a quid a can.

    In theory, yes. More realistically though you probably stand more chance of getting a bike from SICK! than you do of getting hold of some cans of Rich energy.

    Great news! The Netherlands Rich Energy twitter account (est. June 2019) has just confirmed that Rich Energy is available to buy!

    At a Texaco petrol station in the small, rural northern village of Buitenpost! Population – 5,762.

    Bigly huge.

    I find the fact that all the packs have a review from the same guy, saying how awesome it it, deeply suspicious.

    Touché, I worded that wrongly 🙂

    In case anyone is thinking about purchasing some and doing a tast test for us, I can re-assure them that they will not be infringing copyright by doing so. Posting a picture of the can on the internet though…

    I’ve not managed to find any in France at one of the largest motorsports events in the world.

    F1 team, Superbike team, Moto TT, branded helicopters, organising boxing matches, photos with French admirals… and the man himself has a twitter account with no tweets… what a whole load of WTF

    The gentleman on the right hasn’t bought a pack of cans. He has a barrel of Rich Energy stashed up his shirt.

    Anyone thin that we now live in a parallel universe these days?

    Pretty much everything is a “WTAF” moment nowadays.

    Sadly, Rich Energy Events have had to cancel tomorrow’s big gig with the up and coming star of Senegalese music, Wally B Seck. Tickets were £50 to £200+ so he must be good! (Was already rescheduled from April). Oddly, Wally forgot to mention this gig himself. Anywhere.

    Still, they have a bigly huge boxing event to promote!

    An ex World Champion* no less!

    *Stripped of his title for doping. Who lost his last big fight. To a bloke called Whyte. This shit writes itself!

    “Capital Thunder”? Surely an American TV series about a Vietnam vet flying round in a helicopter gunship trying to find any trace of Rich Energy’s assets.

    I’m buying the cheap 24 pack and reselling it for just under a grand. This is like the economy in Morrowind.

    But that comment came from someone who didn’t read the words and only looked at the picture 😉

    The boxing forum chat on the upcoming fight is quite funny;

    July 27th – A Pudding Fest at the York Hall – Tom Little vs Lucas Browne

    It seems like a couple of has beens and they’re the headline!

    I admit I’ve only really just become aware of this, but read through that autocar post and I’ve come to the conclusion that I have absolutely lost any anchoring in reality I may have once had. It looks for all the world like RE is just a brand name for some money laundering operation. Maybe Jordan Childish needs to be taking notes how to really do it properly.

    Ah look, a massive operation in the Netherlands that has been the subject of much conversation

    … and a nice overlay to show how the two logos are coooompleeeetely different!

    Lawyers be lawyering!

    Haas can’t really want to be involved with this, can they?

    Haas can’t really want to be involved with this, can they?

    I suspect they have no choice at this stage without going after some sort of breach of contract, and assuming that contract has clauses to let them out if RE are muppets, which it possibly doesn’t. Haas will need the cash, I suspect, more than the PR is hurting them.

    Gene Haas did time for tax evasion – not exactly a squeaky clean background.

    Haas won’t care as long as RE have money. Haas have sold a spot of advertising on their car, they’ve delivered their end of the deal. They won’t care what RE put there as long as cash is forthcoming.

    According to Companies House, Rich Energy don’t have buckets of cash, not F1 levels.
    And Rich Energy Racing turn over so little they are exempt from accounts.
