Take a look back with the Formula 1 legends parade

The Legends Parade at the Red Bull Ring is definitely a fan highlight of the Formula 1 Grosser Preis von Österreich 2016. There is a reunion with Austrian and international motorsport idols every year at the racing circuit. Driving in the original cars in which they recorded their great successes, the stars – which have included the likes of Niki Lauda, Gerhard Berger, Alain Prost, Nelson Piquet and Jean Alesi in recent years – evoke memories of unique moments in Formula 1’s history while ensuring that the sound of long-forgotten days resounds around the circuit again.

In 2014, all the living former Austrian Formula 1 drivers came to the Red Bull Ring to delight the crowds, while last year the drivers of the turbo era reproduced the immense engine sounds of the 80s. In 2016, in the third edition of the Legends Parade, international motorsport idols are to take the impressive cars of the BMW Procar series around the Austrian track. Among the motor racing legends who have confirmed are Niki Lauda, Gerhard Berger, Dieter Quester, Sepp Manhalter (all AUT), Jos Verstappen (NED), Hans-Joachim ‘Strietzel’ Stuck, Jochen Mass, Leopold Prinz von Bayern, Christian Danner, Harald Grohs (all GER), Marc Surer (CH), Jan Lammers (NED) and Johnny Cecotto (VEN).

They are to rekindle motorsport memories from 1979 and 1980, when the five quickest Formula 1 drivers in practice runs took on up to 19 sports car drivers in a championship contested in BMW M1 Procars. In 1979, Austrian motorsport legend Niki Lauda took the title ahead of Hans-Joachim Struck, while in 1980 Nelson Piquet dominated the BMW Procar series.
