That brings up a good trivia question opportunity!!!!

What racing series was the M1 designed for and used exclusively in?

Bonus Question!!!

Name a driver that competed in the series.

RallyNut's trivia extravaganza strikes again!!! :D

I don't really like the M1 let alone know anything about it, except that its the father to all that is "M"...

I think I remember it being in the Group 4 and Group 5 class of GT racing...

As for the driver this I have no clue but I'm going to say Nelson Piquet

Am I right????

Nelson Piquet is correct. The series that the M1 was in was the Procar series, a support series for the Formula 1 championship back in the seventies, sort of like the Porsche Supercup today. The only difference is that the F1 drivers drove the cars in the races, so the action was close, considering that all of the cars were the same!
