Can anyone add any more detail on these events, beyond the bare bones listed on wsrp.cz? In 1953 Maglioli won from team-mate Mancini in the works(ish) Ferrari 375MM Berlinettas, with Rosier third in his sports-bodied Talbot-Lago T26. They would have been in Mexico essentially to contest the Carrera PanAmericana, but stayed on afterwards for this Puebla event, and the following weekend's Carrera Jalisco in Guadalajara. Does anyone have a circuit map or other details of either event, or indeed an explanation of the Guadeloupe name? St Mary of Guadeloupe, one assumes?

A pair of articles from the italian newspaper "Corriere dello Sport":

How's your Spanish, Doug? :wave:

Click on "Busqueda avanzada" and put Maglioli in the first search box. Then select "Rango de fechas" in the "Rango de fechas" dropdown and put in a date range from 6/12/53 to 14/12/53. Click "Buscar". That will bring up a whole bunch of race previews and reports. :)

(Spookily, I've just been using that website for something else - for the first time in months!)
