HONDA TOURING CAR TEAM FOR BUENOS AIRES 200Km

The Argentine Honda TC2000 drivers and their international guest drivers teamed up in the heat of the 4Km long Oscar Cabalen circuit in Cordova to test the Honda TC2000 cars they will be racing next weekend in the Buenos Aires 200Km. In exhausting 38 degree temperatures, the drivers of the Deep Petrobras Podium and Honda Petrobras Lubrax teams met up to carry out the final race-distance test before the leading South American Touring Car event.

The national drivers were keen to build the rapport with their international partners and to pass on any information about the highly competitive Argentinian Touring Car scene. The tests were overseen by Honda Racing boss Victor Rosso and the heads of the two official factory teams, Luis Belloso and Miguel Alisi. Proving the Honda equal to the challenge of the heat and the distance, both teams rated the tests a great success, as did Victor Rosso. "We are more than pleased with the test and confident that with this group of drivers we are going to be at the front in Buenos Aires. Each one of the international drivers has invaluable experience and the Argentine public will have a chance to see great drivers at work. Let us hope that it is a great celebration on Sunday"

Both teams will now be hives of activity leading up to the first laps of the weekend on Friday, at the circuit Oscar Alfredo Galvez in Buenos Aires.
