A look into Marlboro racing history

Photo from or

The inspiration for our reproduction Marlboro brand windshield banners is love for the early days of motor racing. Philip Morris Formula 1 livery brings out our vintage side conjuring images of James Hunt and an urge to watch Rush, again. Though banned from motor sports in most countries since around the early 2000s due to anti-tobacco sponsorship laws, Malboro has a long association with racing, MacLaren, and especially Ferrari where the bold red and white logo remains eye-catching today, even in its most subliminal form.

Grand Prix Motorcycle racers, like Giacomo Agostini were also sponsored. As well as, Australian Touring Car Racing, and the World Rally Championship teams of Lancia, Mitsubishi, Peugeot, Lancer Evolutions, and racers like Tommi Mäkinen, Timo Salonen and Miki Biasion.

Marlboro has also inspired street car livery in Japan. The Kanjozoku in Osaka sport the well-known red and white on their street cars.
