Rothmans Racing began supporting factory Porsche race teams in 1982 when the company was already established in the automotive world. In 1982, they won the 24 Hours of Le Mans 1-2-3 with the iconic Porsche 956. They would win the series three more times throughout the 80s. The team also won the World Sportscar Championship in 1985 before pulling out in 1987. In 1984 Porsche produced the 911 SC RS rally car specifically for Rothmans with the newly formed Prodrive team and David Richards behind the wheel. In addition to retaining its rally dominance, Rothmans sponsored Porsche's winning team at the Paris-Dakar Rally in 1986. Rothmans Racing ceased its involvement with Porsche in the late 1980s.
