I saw a bit of the Sunday feature race, it was very entertaining.

There were several moderate clashes, so many drivers are angry. So everything as usual.

I saw them too for the first time, a very good championship.

Someone can talk me about the illegal Chevy, Ford and Renault's front-ends? I'm not so informed about the technical regulations of this championship.

That was a very exciting feature race. The winner's car was a mess, surprised it was still fast enough on the straight.
I'm not very familiar with the series, but was particularly impressed with the privateer Ford driver who came from almost last to 8th, and would have done better if he hadn't been spun out half way through.

Apparently they changed rules but didn't tell teams properly. Inspectors went to shops and told them they were fine, then were hit with 30kg at the race.

As always, Argentine motorsport is all about controversy.

Thanks. I read that Citroen wanted them for a bigger ballast. The ambience wasn't so happy in Buenos Aires...

Is there a performance ballast based on results?

No, There is not ballast penalty. The penalty is with turn back positions in the starting grid.
The winner turn back 8 positions, the second 7 positions, the third 6 positions and so on until the eighth that turn back 1 position.

In the next race (Potrero de los Funes) Urcera turn back 8 positions.

Ok, understood. It's something like a reverse grid, a bit different. Is it applied based on the previous event or championship classification?

And when there will be the classification races? All but 200km of Buenos Aires or what else?

The grid penalties depend on overall classification.

Each weekend has a different format, and they decide it more or less the week before.

There are special races that have not penalty.
The 200 km of Buenos Aires have not penalty.

This weekend, the TC visits OlavarrŪa.

1st in qualifying was Gastůn Mazzacane, who broke the track record with 1'18.809 time (185.8 km/h average).
30th was Josť Manual Urcera (+1.227 s).

The race will be 30 laps or 50 minutes, but there will be a compulsory pitstop on laps 13-26 to change the right tyres (each has 5 nuts). As more than 40 cars will start, cars on odd boxes will change on odd laps, and cars on even boxes on even laps.

This year it's the centennial of the TC. On August 6, they will race the 1000 km Buenos Aires, exactly 100 years after the Gran Premio Argentino, which became a "turismo" (stock car) race after two decades as "Fuerza Libre" (run what you brung).
