Can anybody help with race results and data from Argentina or other SA countries during WWII years? O Volante mentioned the GP de Santa Fe from 1942 in the Oldemar da Silva-Ramos thread.
So for sure there were more of them. I do not have any results yet (with the exception of the above).
Details as pole positions and FL are also appreciated. Maybe someone has information on this.
Thanks a lot.

Some of the Turismo de Carretera races organized in Argentina and other South American countries in that period. Fangio participated in all of these ones.

1940

1941

No car racing activities from 1943 untill 1946 .... then some Ford T races were organized

1946

Another question, Arturo

In the GP del Norte 1940 Domingo Marimon won two sections. In my 1955 Buenos Aires 1000 KM
results I have "Douglas" Marimon in 11th place. Could this be the same man? And any relation to Onofre Marimon?

Father and son. Onofre was the "protegé" of the friend of his father, Mister JMF. I only know Domingo.

Well, I have seen Douglas Marimon only in one source: the Wimpfen tombes ...
In the book on the Marimons by J. Eduardo Gesumaría (alias "Sprinter"), Los Marimon. Domingo y Onofre. Narvaja editor, Córdoba 1998, however, the race record does not mention Domingo to have competed in this race ....
Up to you ...
