THE SPRING GRAND PRIX
M ENTioN of Spring at the moment seems remarkably premature, but in the Argentine
…. that season is nearly over, and to celebrate it a race was held on 23rd November. The event took place on the Mercedes track near Buenos Ayres, and was over a distance of 250 miles. Fittingly enough, in view of the name of the track, the race was won by a big Mercedes-Benz driven by Carlos Satuszeck, with Ricardo Caru on one of the old racing Fiats second, and a Maserati third. The official results were as follows :—
1, Carlos Satuszeck (Mercedes-Benz), 3h. 4m. 43s. Average speed 78.34 m.p.h.
2, Ricardo Caru (Fiat), 3h. 11m. 37 3/5s.
3, Juan A. Malcolm (Maserati), 3h. 18m. 7 4/5s.
