Event Description

My name is Sergio Bertotto and I am passionate about old cars, and specifically about the Ford “A” model. Due to this great passion, we decided to create a team, including eight friends of mine, two mechanics and one doctor. We owned three vehicles Ford “A” Speedsters, from 1929, modified for the symbolic re-editing of “La Buenos Aires –Caracas” (bodyworks with race modification given by Ford in the Institutional magazine “Ford World”, number 102, September 1932)

The traditional race covers almost 10.000 kilometres across six countries of South America. The race is organized by the “Asociación Clásicos e Históricos del Turismo Carretera”(the 1.000 argentine mile” organizers)
The first edition of “La Buenos Aires-Caracas” was done in 1948, and it was then, when it was considered as the most important race of the world, because it proved men and vehicles` capacity of that time to race along different landscapes, hills, mountains, deserts and in all kind of weather conditions, reaching 4.400 meters high.

The competition will be rally system (tourist concentration type), and it will be divided into 21 steps. There will be a general classification, and another one per category.
We will be participating as “Vintage Motor Museum”.

Because of this increasing devotion for vehicles we want to be together on this, making you participant of this event, and with the idea of sharing our happiness and passion.

It is for this reason that we would like to as you for the e-mail addresses of all your members and friends so as to inform about the daily estate of the competition.
We would be very pleased to get in contact with all of you.

Many thanks in advance,

Sergio Bertotto.
