Juan Fangio Balcarce Museum Day Trip
At 9 am, we'll pick you up at your hotel in Mar del Plata and go to the interior of Buenos Aires, crossing the beautiful landscapes of the Tandilia mountain range.
After a 90-minute drive along National Route 226 we'll arrive in Balcarce, the hometown of Juan Manuel Fangio, the greatest Argentine driver of all time! During his career he was proclaimed Formula 1 World Champion five times, a colossal success only surpassed by the seven titles of Michael Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton.
As soon as we arrive in Balcarce we'll go to Libertad Square to visit the Juan Manuel Fangio Museum. Its exhibition includes a wide range of historic cars, including Fangio's legendary silver arrow, the Mercedes-Benz W196. The collection also includes other emblematic racing cars, such as Ayrton Senna's McLaren, Alain Prost's Renault Turbo R30 and the famous Torino from the Nürburgring Odyssey.
During the visit to the museum, we'll also see other objects to learn about Fangio's five world titles,1951 with Alfa Romeo, 1954 (shared with Alfieri Maserati and Daimler Benz AG), that of 1955 which was repeated with Daimler, 1956 with the prestigious Scuderia Ferrari and1957 with Maserati.
The visit to the museum includes lunch at Café Fangio, where you'll be able to drink different specialities from the province of Buenos Aires. After lunch, you'll have approximately one hour free. You can take advantage of this time to try the famous Balcarce, a sponge cake from the city.
