Glamour, Solidarity, Passion, And History

Last Saturday, some 15 car haulers carried the classic sports cars making up the caravan of the twenty-eighth edition of the 1000 Millas Sport.

THE RACE COURSE IS ALL SET. A BREATHTAKING ITINERARY

The Seven Lakes Drive, the Short Roundabout and the Parallel 42 in the Andean Region are part of this groundbreaking venue for the 28th edition of the 1000 Millas Sport to be held from November 9th to 13th, 2016. Declared of municipal interest by the city of San Martín de los Andes, this race will close the Argentine regularity rally calendar for Classic Sports Cars supervised by ACA and Daniel Erejomovich has practically won the championship one more time.

It is the perfect combination of racing and driving. It calls for precision with the pressure switch and mother nature´s perfection to provide such majestic landscapes. These ageless automobiles are individual pieces of jewelry that stand out in the history of car making as they keep rushing along winding roads among lakes, forests and mountains. They are still pictures of the experiences lived year after year in the 1000 Millas in these quintessential tourism areas of Neuquén, Rio Negro and Chubut in Patagonia.

FROM THE TRUCKS TO THE ROADS

Nicolás Filiberti, former Formula 3000 (today GP2) pilot - the opening category of Formula 1; Alejandro Chawan, member of the Argentina Mission to the 24 Hours Nürburgring; and Fabián Taraborelli, who dared to participate in Dakar Rally on a motorcycle, enrolled for the 2016 edition of the 1000 Millas Sport.

From the adrenaline of speed to the enjoyment of a ride on a classic sports car. This describes the participation of the three men who have gone through the experience of racing in prestigious international categories, and who today are enrolled in the 1000 Millas Sport, maintaining their passion for cars and competitive spirit unchanged. True, they have changed the adrenaline of driving more than 200 kilometers per hour to the easy ride offered by a regularity rally, but behind the wheel of precious mechanical jewels that year after year show off on the roads of Argentina's Patagonia.

FERRARI: SYMBOL OF ANOTHER HISTORIC EDITION

After the first week of qualified entries, the 1000 Millas will once again pay tribute to the cars, races, events, and personalities that made sport racing great in Argentina and around the world.

The Ferrari 166/195 Coupé Vignale chosen for the poster of the 28th edition of the 1000 Millas Sport is one of the vehicles that on March 9, 1952, participated in the VI Grand Prix of the City of Buenos Aires which celebrated the opening of the capital's race circuit. Throughout 65 years the most relevant categories in the world paraded in the circuit: from Formula 1 to Sport Prototypes, the MotoGP, Formula 3000, and in February 2017, probably the brand-new Electric Formula.

1000 Millas: Scalise winner, Erejomovich Argentine champion

The great duel was defined by 9 points

Scalise-Claramunt winners of 1000 Millas 2015

After three intense days during which there were practically no differences, the team on board the Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GS celebrated one of the closest victories in the history of the 27 editions of the rally.

“Had it not been for the lack of practice and for not running races, we made some mistakes during the first leg. Who knows, we could have made a definition sooner", says Daniel Claramunt, copilot of Claudio Scalise on the Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GS. This piece of information is rather significant considering the outcome of the race, intriguing till the very final moments.

While Scalise entered the gold book of the 1000 Millas equaling Fernando Sanchez Zinny with four victories, Claramunt celebrated for the first time his the success in the most important classic sports cars rally of the country for 27 uninterrupted years.

The history of the winning team is both special and curious. After meeting in college and losing contact for ten years, in 1998 they met again thanks to the passion they share for cars. From that first Volvo with which Scalise started to take up regularity racing to the Alfa Romeo he used to win this 2015 edition, there are other resounding victories, both national and international. Claudio learned the techniques explained by Claramunt very rapidly, to such extent that from 2002 to 2005 he earned four Historical Sports titles, two 1000 Millas (the third one was in 2008) and the victory on the Nuvolari.

Since 2010 and having in mind proving himself just how much of a regularity expert he was, he started racing in Europe, earning the third place in 2011 and the cherished victory in the Mille Miglia 2012.

“I don't know if I had to shake off the rust or not. This is my fourth victory in the 1000 Millas but the first with Daniel as copilot. The truth is that I wanted to win with him, and this time I could. This way I am closing a very important cycle for me”, acknowledged Scalise during the gala dinner at the Llao-Llao Hotel.

But beyond the disappointment after the defeat, Daniel Erejomovich also has won four times, as he won the historical sports regularity Argentine Championship 2015 (from 2009 till 2011), he is a three-times winner of the Triple Crown thanks to his great performance not only in the 1000 Millas, but also to his victories in the other two races making up this trophy: the Wineries Rally and the Mountain Rally.         

“Erejo”, who took up the activity in 2007, rapidly became an icon. “I've always liked games where averages, scoring and technique are involved. In fact, I played - and still play - golf, archery, bowling, all of which one needs to be precise, like in regularity”, comments the one who could not repeat the victory of the 1000 Millas like in 2011 (which took place in Córdoba).

A fan of classic cars, his first collector car - which he still owns - a Jaguar E-Type, Erejomovich acknowledges that his victories this year were the result of a “big preparation that we did with Gustavo Llanos, my copilot, in pursuit of winning everything”.

Although the victory in Patagonia is pending, “Erejo”, with a recently acquired 1929 Bugatti, will seek to attain international victories in the Mille Miglia and Nuvolari, among others.

¿Quién será el ganador?

Scalise-Erejomovich o Erejomovich-Scalise  ÓRDEN DE MÉRITO

Ya sea uno u otro los dos grandes favoritos cumplieron con una destacada actuación por lo que se han hecho merecedores de la victoria. Tal ha sido la paridad que, por puntos netos (sin aplicar el hándicap) habrían arrancado la última etapa virtualmente empatados. Independientemente de quien resulte el ganador de esta edición de las 1000 Millas Sport, Erejomovich ya se consagró –por cuarta vez- campeón argentino Sport Histórico.

Scalise 1º y Erejomovich 2º UNA CLASIFICACIÓN CON MUCHAS SORPRESAS

Tras concluir la segunda etapa, la victoria 2015 no parece quedar circunscripta a los grandes favoritos. Los desempeños de Alejandro López como Ricardo Licursi permiten imaginar que tal vez uno de ellos inscriba su nombre en el álbum de oro.

ETAPA 1 - DIFÍCIL PERO DIVERTIDA

Tras completar casi 500 kilómetros de carrera uniendo Llao-Llao, Junín y San Martín de los Andes, Villa La Angostura y el Centro Cívico de Bariloche, los participantes de la 27ma edición de las 1000 Millas Sport coincidieron en las dificultades que presentaron las 29 pruebas de habilidad conductiva pero -al mismo tiempo- disfrutando de un recorrido paisajístico único.
