OK, with the caveat that I know NOTHING about racing, so please excuse my ignorance, I have a question.

One of the guys at work has acquired a Lucky Strike Team jacket and asked me, as the only person at work who rides, did I know who Lucky Strike sponsored.

My answer was a resounding "No". So I bring the question to the forum.

Which team did Lucky Strike Sponsor, when, and who rode for them?

Thanks all :D

They also Sponsed Cagiva in thier Paris Dakar efforts and in thier GP efforts there was a Mito 125 lucky strike replica as well as an Elephant 900ie lucky strike prelica from the early 90's. No idea who rode for them at the time the Elephants took out the PD a couple of times.
