The annual Temporada (racing season) created a transition in Argentine motor sport. In earlier years racing circuits were primarily on rough tracks, with cars designed to cope with poor surfaces. Lacking the resources or technology needed to create bespoke circuits, Argentina looked to create racing venues from what it already had: public paved parks. After WWII, the Temporadas were organised in the Torreon in Mar del Plata, Parque Independencia in Rosario, Palermo, Constanera and Retiro in Buenos Aires, and Sarmiento in Cordoba. Thanks to these races, held in public parks and on public roads, Argentina began to be seen as a potential destination for a Formula 1 Grand Prix and for a round of the world sports car championship, the Beunos Aires 1000km. The circuits hosted the likes of Villoresi, Varzi, Farina, Wimille, Ascari, Moss and Prince Bira, and arguably taught Juan Manuel Fangio how to drive race cars. Wonderfully illustrated with 220 contemporary photographs, including many that have never been published before: images that will take you back in time, to the unique atmosphere of top motorsport in South America from 1950 to 1960.

About the Author:

A freelance writer, and author of 'The Illustrated History of the Buenos Aires 1000km,' 'Las Temporadas' (DVD) and 'The Pampas Bull - Jose Froilan Gonzalez,' Hernan Lopez Laiseca has an obvious passion for motor racing. He has a fanatacism for cars, races and photos, inherited from his father. Hernan's office at Buenos Aires houses a great collection of books, magazines, and an exclusive photo archive. His main objective as a writer is to ensure that the glorious stories from motoring's past are not forgotten and, instead, serve to build a present and future with more solid and permanent values.

Review:

images that will take you back in time www.autosport.at a pictorial celebration of times past Motor Sport There is a quite considerable-and growing-body of literature on South American racing ... and this nice book is a useful and welcome addition. SpeedReaders a good read for racing fans. Auto Express a photographic record of ten years of frantic racing in the Argentinian heat. Speedscene a worthy addition to any library. Vintage Racecar/Vintage Roadcar Highly recommended! Classic driver (monthly)
