Procar Returns At German Grand Prix 2008

Submitted by on August 23, 2008

The greatest one make series ever, Procar, made a one off return at the German Grand Prix in July.

Featuring ten 500HP mid engined BMW M1s, the race was to celebrate 30 years since the series ended in 1978. The race was won by 3 time world champion Niki Lauda.

The M1 was one of the best looking cars to ever hit the track and according to Lauda they go rather well too!

“It was such a hoot. We were allowed to drive how we wanted, we didn’t have to hold back on the pace. Actually, we should have been chasing Jochen Neerpasch in the M1 Art Car, but he didn’t get off to a proper start. And that gave me a clear run ahead. I’m going to have to seriously reconsider whether my career really is over! It was great fun”.
