Dakar Rally ( January)

The Dakar Rally (or simply “The Dakar“; formerly known as the “Paris–Dakar Rally“) is an annual rally raid organized by the Amaury Sports Organization. Most events since the inception in 1978 were from Paris, France, to Dakar, Senegal, but due to security threats in Mauritania, which led to the cancellation of the 2008 rally, races since 2009 have been held in South America. The race is open to amateur and professional entries, amateurs typically making up about eighty percent of the participants.

The race is an off-road endurance event. The terrain that the competitors traverse is much tougher than that used in conventional rallying, and the vehicles used are true off-road vehicles rather than modified on-road vehicles. Most of the competitive special sections are off-road, crossing dunes, mud, camel grass, rocks, and erg among others. The distances of each stage covered vary from short distances up to 800–900 kilometers (500–560 mi) per day.

2016 the rally starts in Buenos Aires, Argentine to Uyuni, Bolivia and back finished in Rosario, Argentina

Formula E ( February)

Rio Hondo Autodromo ( Santiago del Estero)

The circuit Termas de Río Hondo is a motorsport circuit located in Termas de Río Hondo, Argentina. The circuit was created in 2007 and underwent a complete overhaul and rebuild process in 2012, based on the design by the Italian circuit designer Jarno Zaffelli. The circuit hosted the third round of the Argentine motorcycle Grand Prix in 2014 and 2015, bringing Grand Prix motorcycle racing back to Argentina after fifteen years. In 2013, the circuit also hosted Rounds 15 and 16 of the FIA WTCC Race of Argentina of the World Touring Car Championship, and the first MotoGP and Moto2 official tests. The track was to host the Argentine motorcycle Grand Prix in 2013, but the government’s nationalization of the local subsidiary of Repsol S.A., and the ensuing cancellation of gas exports to Argentina raised concerns for the safety of the Honda MotoGP team that is sponsored by the Spanish oil company, forcing a one-year postponement. In previous years, the circuit has also hosted events in the TC2000, Turismo Carretera and Formula Renault series.

Polo ( November/December)

Boasting the highest number of ten-goal players in the sport, Argentina has long been regarded as polo’s mecca, and the annual Argentine Open in Buenos Aires is considered the most important international championship at club level. The contest takes place in Buenos Aires every spring, between November and December, at the Argentine Polo Ground in Palermo – a venue known as the cathedral of polo. Glamorous crowds flock to the event to see the world’s best players show their skills on the field before celebrating at the glitzy post-match parties.

Rugby

Rugby is a sport of considerable and ancient diffusion in Argentina. In 1873 the first rugby match was played and in 1899 was founded the River Plate Rugby Championship, the predecessor of the Argentine Rugby Union (UAR). Men’s Argentine rugby is hegemonic both in the American continent and in Latin America, having won all the editions of the Americas Rugby Championship that has been played since 2009 and also all the editions of the South American Rugby Championship, played since 1951, with the exception of Edition of 1981, in which he did not participate. Internationally, her most resounding success was third place in the 2007 Rugby World Cup and the runner-up in the 2009 Rugby World Cup. Women’s rugby is much less developed and does not have the continental pre-eminence Which has male rugby. According to figures published in 2012 in Argentina, rugby between 50,000 and 100,000 federated players play in all divisions (children, minors, juveniles and adults). The Rugby Union of Buenos Aires (URBA) accounts for 16,000 players from the youth and senior divisions that operate in their area, representing 45% of a national total of 35,000 players, which URBA estimates exist at the national level.

Formula 1

The Argentine Grand Prix is a single-seater speed motorcycle race valid for the Formula 1 World Championship. There were 21 editions, all at the Autodromo de Buenos Aires, in three periods: 1953 to 1960, 1971 to 1981, and 1995 to 1998, with absences in 1959 and 1976. Argentina’s Juan Manuel Fangio is the biggest winner of the Argentine Grand Prix with four wins, being the only local driver to win it.

Return of the Great Prize in the decade of the 70 (1972-1981) In 1972 the Argentine Grand Prix returned to the calendar coinciding with the debut of Carlos Reutemann. Reutemann achieved the position of rope in his first competition of Formula 1, becoming thus the second pilot in reaching that achievement. The race was won by the pilot Jackie Stewart.

Third return (1995-1998) A private consortium purchased the runway in 1991 and began remodeling. The president of that then Carlos Menem had as main objective to bring back the F1. The Argentine Grand Prix finally returned to the calendar in 1995, with a win for Damon Hill. Hill would win the event also in 1996, and in 1997 Jacques Villeneuve won the test and also the championship. Unfortunately, the organizers’ financial problems prevented the race from continuing beyond 1998, when it was last disputed, with Michael Schumacher winning, with the ninth victory for Ferrari.

… we are waiting for the new return….
