Sporting sponsorships

Chelsea are sponsored by Samsung, and were once by Commodore and again by Amiga. Man Utd were once by Sharp, and recently got some money from Epson.

What other sporting sponsorships by tech companies can you remember?

Hitachi sponsored Liverpool 1979-82, but not JVC. But I did miss that one...

  Fruit Bat /\0/\ 20:40 29 Mar 2012

Olivetti sponsored Formula One Racing back in the 80's

Surely the most famous F1 car must be the JPS Lotus

but of course we can't advertise smoking anymore

I don't think the JPS Lotus referred to the IBM Lotus 123 spreadsheet, though...

That was even more tenuous than my cheeky Tetley's link:)
