A Kyalami Legend.

Alain won the SAGP at Kyalami in 1982 (Renault RE30B) and again in 1993 (Williams FW15C Renault). One of only 2 drivers to win Grand Prix on the 2 different versions of the Kyalami circuit. Alain also took 2 podiums for McLaren at Kyalami finishing second in 1984 and third in 1985. His victory at the "new" Kyalami in 1993 (the last SAGP) was from pole position also recording the fastest race lap. Prost was well known for his smooth and consistent driving style and earned the nickname of "The Professor". His epic duels with team mate Ayrton Senna at McLaren gained both legendary status. Prost remains a well-respected member of the motorsport community also having received the highest honor in France (Chevalier de la Legion d'honneur).

Having won the SAGP twice, a true Kyalami legend.
