IS Yorkie's "Win a tank of petrol" age discrimination?

I just noticed that Yorkie's wrapper competition allowing buyers to win a full tank of petrol is only applicable for people 18 years of age and above, but you are allowed to drive from the age of 17 years. So by intentionally leaving out specific age group isn't this a form of age discrimination?

Aren't most competition always age 18 and over unless aimed at children who need parental consent?
So I guess it's aimed at those, who are by law, adults (I think that is 18)

No because as usual there are T&Cs and even if your are 17 for T&Cs you're still considered a minor

It just seems a little mean to tell some drivers they are not allowed to win a tank of petrol when the government is fine with them buying it.

Also women shouldn't be allowed to win.

I agree. Then it will stop all the fire coming out of their mouths during an argument

You have to be 18 or over to enter competitions to win a lifetime supply of tea. I'm pretty sure you can drink tea at an age younger than 18.
