Yes, it is. Since 1980, Argentine F1 survives as a Regional series.
Now they're susbscribed to inner tracks of the province of Buenos Aires, mainly Dolores.
Old Argentine F1 racers Orlando Sotro and (occasionally) Norberto Pauloni are still present, exceptionally in the case of Sotro who is an active racer despite he's 75 yrs old!
Other notable thing to mention is that members from an industrial high school from Temperley are competing on the series; even they're racing with a car built on their own (Borella-Tornado).
Unfortunately, part of data from the Regional years of the series are lost; secretary of the series HÃ©ctor Rusciano tried to collect the most data possible, that could be seen on the series website.
This year (2007) Argentine F1 did only two races, but they're working "a pulmone" to go stronger in the future.
