Touring car racing in Uruguay

Last weekend I attended the final round of the Uruguayan circuit racing championship.

We got late and could only watch two races: Superturismo and South American Formula 4.

All Superturismo cars use a 2.0L Cosworth engine developing 225 hp. Several importers support teams, therefore you get to see Peugeots with Le Mans stripes, blue and white Hyundai, Castrol Volkswagens, YPF Chevrolets, and a couple of Chinese factory entries.

Interesting!

So Superturismo - that's like NGTC? Spec-engine in a roadcar chassis? Or are those all out silhouettes?

Also wondering - is there any kind of 2nd hand series in Uruguay where people would race older TC2000s or Brazilian-stockcars?

See link in first post for photos.




Looks like S1600 size cars.

Grid size is very good.

Could still be (semi-) silhouettes, e.g. like the Maxi Rally cars in neighboring Argentina.

The Superturismo are actual road car chassis. Powertrain is spec.

In addition to Superturismo, the AUVO has three other touring car classes (which I missed because we arrived late):

* Turismo Libre (non-spec, plenty of old VW Gol)
* Superescarabajos (old VW Beetles, cheap and cheerful)
* Chevrolet Sonic Racing Cup (unmodified road cars)

There's other formula classes: Fórmula 4 Uruguaya, Fórmula Vee and Fórmula Super Vee. But I don't know how many entries they have.

We don't import old race cars from Argentina or Brazil. There's been rumors that a company wants to sell Argentine TC Pista cars here, but there's no official announcements yet.

Apparently the Fórmula Súper Vee was to replace the old Fórmula Vee in 2016, with 1.6L Ford engines. But it's not been held, I think.

Modified road cars or tubeframe like Fun Cup in Europe?

Road cars. Not too powerful either, say 80-120 hp (I actually have no idea).
