Niki Lauda passes away
Sad news of the death of Austrian driver Niki Lauda was known this morning. For many young people his figure is associated with that of Mercedes Team F1 consultant, but for veteran fans the name of Lauda is linked to a very special generation of F1 drivers. His three world titles, two with Ferrari and one with McLaren remain in the statistics, but his accident at the Nurbrugring in 76, and its physical and aesthetic sequels marked enormously worldwide recognition.
We started to drive Lauda’s slot cars in the seventies and there is practically no slot brand that has in its catalog a car piloted by the Austrian. Now when we put one of those cars back on the slottrack we will take care to get out of the track. It's the way he stays running with us.
