Clark and Nasir want you to buy…Samba & Tango The Latin Beat of Formula Uno
From Juan Manuel Fangio to Juan Pablo Montoya, Latin America has produced great racing champions.
The Argentine “Maestro” was the first driver from South America to become Formula One World Champion in 1951. From 1954-’57 he was unbeaten in the World Championship.
Jose Froilan Gonzalez, a compadre and countryman of Fangio, gave Enzo Ferrari his first taste of success in Formula One at Silverstone in 1951.
Emerson Fittipaldi became the first Brazilian to win a grand prix at Watkins Glen in 1970 – in only his fourth F1 start! He was World Champion in 1972 & ’74.
Nelson Piquet, who went to school in San Francisco Bay Area, also took his first grand prix victory in the United States, on the streets of Long Beach. He was the first turbo-powered World Champion in 1983 with Brabham-BMW. He also took the title in 1981 & ’87.
Then came Ayrton Senna. From incredible wins like Estoril 1985 and Donington 1993 to fierce rivalries with Alain Prost and Nigel Mansell, Senna for many remains the greatest driver of all time.
Other drivers featured in this classic calendar include the Rodriguez brothers, Carlos Reutemann, Carlos Pace, Felipe Massa, Pastor Maldonado and Rubens Barrichello.
