Racing Green is the newest in the Orlik series. The package claims that Racing Green has classic British elements. If they refer to the topping added, they are very wrong. Therefore i think they must mean "British" as in pure and clean tobacco. That is not entirely wrong, because the cavendish is very subdued and the topping only rears its head at the beginning of the bowl.
There is not much new here. A typical Danish semi-aromatic, but the topping has a twist: grapefruit in a very small measure. The blend is very reminiscent of Golden Slices, but is a tad more cool and flamboyant as in not monochromatic. It is an interesting blend for crossover fans, and I will recommend it for its well balanced qualities, compared to other blends in the same tier, and for its quality of leaf. Ask for it at danishpipeshop.com (it's not listed, but they carry it).
