Bugattis Racing in Argentina

Our book Bugatti Argentina tells the story of the big number of Bugattis that came to Argentina. Though it has information about the importer, Luis Tirasso, and his connection with the count Eduardo Matarazzo in San Pablo, Brazil, the book is focused in the racing activities of the Molsheim cars in Argentina.
