Peter Sauber in Switzerland in 1980. Sauber at that time had secured
sponsorship from the Swiss firm of POOH Jeans to run a two-car

Schurti. As Surers commitments proved too heavy for him
to compete regularly the Swiss driver Walter Nussbaumer took over.
In six Procar races Nussbaumer's best result was 8th place, with
7th overall at the final round of the DRM in Hockenheim. For two
other races 076 was driven by Schurti who recorded a 2nd place
and a retirement.

with Nussbaumer, however 076 was sold during that year to the
GS team for Helmut Henzler, who finished 2nd in the series, the
