The farewell contests for Turismo Carretera figures are full of emotion and attract thousands of fans who want to witness the final outing on the track of their idols.
The focus of attention has always been on the main character running in his last career, the sporting aspect is still important since last weekend a new TC championship date was held. And on the track, a very specific event took place this weekend and in another emotional farewell that Turismo Carretera has.
For this reason, at Carburando we review several recognition races that have had remarkable results.
The 1-2 of JP
In Toay’s career, Guillermo Ortelli has been competitive and in the top 20 at every start of the track. But his final result (12th) will not be remembered as 1-2 of the JP Carrera team that achieved the second consecutive victory of Agustín Canapino and the second place of Santiago Mangoni, so that it became a total team party. led by Gustavo Lema.
The Guri of Paraná
Ortelli’s isn’t the only dream goodbye to Turismo Carretera. In September 2019, this was the closest precedent when “Guri” Omar Martínez wore the TC pilot’s suit for the last time.
It was in Paraná the last race of the Ford idol, who saw the checkered flag in 23rd place, but there was extra joy on the podium. On the one hand, he celebrated in front of thousands of fans who came to see him, but like JP on Sunday, the Guri Martínez Competición reached 1-2 thanks to Mauricio Lambiris and Juan Bautista De Benedictis.
The Di Palmas of Rafaela
Another of the memorable moments of Turismo Carretera was October 8, 2000. Only 8 days have passed since Luis Rubén Di Palma died in a tragic helicopter accident and the TC appeared in Rafaela for the 14th date of the year.
In the family’s pain due to the loss of their father, Marcos and Jose Luis Di Palma decided to run and an unforgettable career to honor Arrecife’s idol.
The Di Palma brothers were competitive and in the final Marcos fought Ortelli until Jose Luis and Marcos advanced to the final, where the former won for an emotional 1-2 as a tribute to “Loco” Luis Di Palma.
Castellano-Ramos as a tribute to Fangio in Balcarce
Oscar Castellano achieved his last victory within the TC on June 23, 1991 in Balcarce, just before Juan Manuel Fangio’s 80th birthday.
“Chueco” is one of the most important figures in “Pincho” Castellano’s sports campaign. The link between the two began in 1973 when the driver from Lobería ran in the zones and the multiple F1 champion recommended him to enter F2. That relationship was strengthened and over the years became a very good friendship.
That competition at Balcarce 1991 will be remembered by TC fans as it was almost entirely the domain of the orange Falcon of “Pincho”, as Eduardo “Lalo” Ramos completed the team’s 1-2 on a date marked in history . of CT.
