23/11/1941; Buenos Aires GP ,Retiro Circuit ,Chico Landi ,Alfa Romeo Tipo B

It was an interesting race between the local heros and the Brazilians at the short Retiro Circuit that was used for the 1941 and 1947 Buenos Aires GP at the time when in Europe had already started a bloody WW2.
Landi was one of the first Brazilians to try his luck in Europe, making the move in the late forties after building up a fine record with his Alfa Romeo. He won the Bari GP in a Ferrari in 1948, and raced spasmodically in Grands Prix and other events over the next few seasons. His best single-seater result was a second place in the Albi GP with a Ferrari 375 in 1952, a season which also saw him gain a string of fine placings at home. Landi raced on into the late fifties, before retiring to become a leading figure in the administration of Brazilian motor sport
