Past Gas #198: Miracle at the Nurburgring: The Story of the 1969 Argentinian Torinos

By Donut Media

In 1969, Argentina was a different place than it is today. Only three years after a violent military coup, it was a time of deep political unrest. And yet, amidst widespread protests and government crackdowns, the attention of the nation was stolen by an unlikely event at the Nürburgring. For three straight days, radios across the country buzzed with live coverage of a scrappy team of racers as they attempted the impossible at one of the longest endurance circuit races ever held. Why is a souped-up coupe the pride of Argentinanian racing? What was the Marathon de la Route? And who was the F1 superstar who showed those European car manufacturers who’s boss? This is the story of the 84 Hours at Nurburgring with the IKA Torinos. You asked for it -- and we listened. We're filming Past Gas again!
