Throwback Thursday: Niki Lauda's Early Years

Niki Lauda driving a BMW 3.0 CSL in the DRM

I thought it might be of interest, with the imminent release of Ron Howard's Rush to have a look at Lauda's early racing career.   Granted, this documentary is pretty lame but it does show Lauda racing BMW sedans and CSL's in the early 70s something many might not know he did.

Lauda's involvement with BMW continued throughout his F1 career, he was the winner of the inaugural BMW M1 Procar season in 1979.
Lauda, as you might imagine he would, remains pretty handy behind the wheel in his later years, winning a Procar revival race in 2008.
