Ayrton Senna, Niki Lauda, Fittipaldi and many other F1 champions drive the Mercedes 190E in the inaugural race of Saloon Car Racing. Senna was a rookie at the time, and still managed to take 1st place away from the masters.
A very controversial Grand Prix. In the beggining of the race, Niki Lauda’s and Clay Regazzoni’s Ferraris touched wheels, which caused Clay and James Hunts to crash. The race was restarted after Hunt’s McLaren was repaired and he would win the GP.
Some days later his repairs were claimed to have been done illegaly, so victory was given to Niki Lauda instead.
