The Car: Balcarce

Only cars with a historic relevance are accepted among the hundreds of applicants. Guido and Eduardo carefully picked a 1940 Chevrolet Master Coupe which was known among “moonshiners” for its speed and agility.

 
 

Most importantly, the Master Coupe is the same car that Juan Manuel Fangio, one of the greatest F1 drivers of all time, won his first races with as a young man in Argentina. Fangio nicknamed his car Balcarce, as an homage to his hometown. Beiner and Balocco will carry the spirit of Fangio as they drive a restored 1940 Chevrolet Master Coupe towards the finish line in Paris.
