Default 555 Racing is Sponsering BAR Honda F1 Team

Anyone notice that there is a 555 Racing sponser sticker on the nose of the new BAR Honda F1 car.

If you want to see pics, check out http://www.f1-live.com/ or go to this direct link http://f1.racing-live.com/en/photos/...team-bar.shtml

Too bad the car is not Rally Blue.

And they have been for a couple years. They had a split-down-the-middle paint job on the F1 cars the first year BAR and 555 teamed up. One half was BAR, one half 555.

Lucky Strike & 555 are the same company. The first cars where Lucky & 555.

the name of the parent company of 555/LS is British American Tabaco, hence BAR (british american racing). David Richards took control of BAR last year. part of the deal was that 555 would resume sponsoring SWRT.

Furthermore, the 555 logo has appeared on the drivers suits of the BAR drivers since the Lucky Strikes-only paint schemes have been in place.
