In Argentina,the three major championships have tried to create marquee events. Some worked better than others, and their status changes year by year.

The Buenos Aires street race was massive. The 2016 OlavarrŪa 500km was massive. The first editions of the 200km Buenos Aires too.

So what went wrong with the BA200, making it less of a success these days? Just the novelty factor wearing off?

As the peso lost value, it got harder to bring show cars and guest drivers from abroad.

Also, as several championships switched away from Canal 13 / Carburando, media coverage got split. Carburando stopped promoting next weekend's TC races, and Canal 7 did not promote next weekend's STC 2000 race.

...that and 200km is a laughably short distance to make into a marquee event.

Used to be Spa 24, Bathurst, Nurby 24 or the ETC race, Silverstone TT and Monza 500 and possibly Macau or Fuji but the last 2 mentioned were more like show races rather than big time in the manufacturers eyes.

It's very very ordinary nowadays.

Yes if only we could bring back the Spa 24 hours for the traditional tin tops, even in it's not too bad with the GTs now and also have Fuji and the Silverstone TT. That said having the WTCC at the Nurburgring surely must be up there

TT is the Silverstone WEC round these days... don't think they'll give it back any time soon.

Well we did have the Donington 1hr Endurance race. Would love to have that back. Even had Damon Hill competing once
