Renault brand Dacia has claimed its first title in motorsport thanks to Alain Prost and son Nicolas. After a dramatic last-lap ice racing clash, the former World Champion Frenchman achievement in the Trochee Andros in a Lodgy Glace model.
The Prost blend, teamed up with Evens Stievenart, was implicated in a highly interesting late-race tussle after the car had been repaired following contact. With Alain driving to his third and Dacia's fourth conquest of the 2011/12 season, this brought home the marque's first motor racing crown of any kind.
Prost claimed his first Formula 1 titles for McLaren in 1985 and 1986 before beating Ayrton Senna when the two team-mates notoriously collided at Suzuka in 1989. Following a year’s sabbatical, he made a return with Williams ahead of retiring from the sport at the end of a dominant 1993 season.
