Autodromo Juan Manuel Fangio - Ciudad de Balcarce
BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA

Track Type: Race Track
Length: 4.595 m
Standard version: 1.0
Track years: 1972 - Current
Idea and Track Creator: Pablo Fernandez
========================

General Information:
========================
Balcarce is one of the most famous Argentinian motorsport circuits.

Long ago and far away, on a day in 1966, Fangio walked the dirt roads of the wild cliff "La Barrosa" to see the place and location for his own project to build a local racetrack in the city of his birth. After some difficult years of hard work and with the input of the state governors and the National goverment, the dream came true in the early 70's.

The big day arrived and Balcarce had its first race on January 16th, 1972. The day couldn't be worse! The warm afternoon turned quickly into a wild summer rainstorm that overran the city and the track. After two endless heats the British driver John Hine won in a blue Chevron B19, with second going to Brazilian driver Jose Carlos Pace (AMS) and third to Swedish driver Joakim Bonnier (Lola T212).

From then on, through the years, all National race cups took place at Balcarce, along with some international categories.
Nowadays, the track is under the authority's decision whether to remain open or to close, due to a fatal accident in 2011.

Would anyone be inclined to post some glorious screenshots in the thread? They always tend to help the number of downloads, so the amount of work put into this interesting track makes more people happy. Thanks for the track Pablo!

What a nice surprise.  Can't wait to try it later!  Thank you, Pablo!  It looks like a fun track and interesting to see it loops over itself, ala Suzuka.

Cheers,

Dave
