The overall winner of the first Procar season was Niki Lauda. The following year, Nelson Piquet secured first place in the overall standings with three wins in a row. On the Carrera track you can follow in the footsteps of the racing legend and really step on the gas with the white and red car. In the very first year of the Procar series in 1979, the likeable Austrian was able to secure overall victory. Will you also manage a new lap best time on your Carrera race track?
