A strong representative of journalists coming from the different provinces of the country gathered at the Faena Hotel in Buenos Aires and welcomed ‘Pechito’ with a big round of applause.

During the event López answered questions from the floor and was available for individual interviews with TV and radio crews. “The challenge I’m facing is a big one. Not only for joining such an important team like Citroën Racing in a World Championship, but also because I represent a country that is absolutely crazy about racing.

For all this reasons I can’t wait for the championship to kick off and hope I will please everybody with my performance on the track,” López said.
