The international response was enthusiastic, attracting pilots Gijs van Lennep, Joachen Mass, Eric Comas, Phillipe Alliot, Clay Ragazzoni, Guy Edwards, Luigi Villonesi and musicians such as David Gilmour and Nick Mason, who made the soundtrack of a documentary about their participation in the race of 1991 driving a Proteus.

  12. In 1954 Il Drake had his revenge: the Ferrari 375 Plus Pininfarina of Umberto Maglioli won with almost 10 hours less than in 1950: 17º40'26 ", this record remains in the annals of world motorsport. The presidency of Alemán ended in 1952 with a huge inflation, the new “Hueyi Tlahtoani” (Ruling King in Nahuatl, the language of Aztecs) Adolfo Ruiz Cortines, had to deal with devaluation cutting federal expenses. As the main intention of La Carrera Panamericana was to promote México as a touristic destination, the accumulation of 27 deaths in 1954, one of the highest death rates in the history of m

That year the Carrera Panamericana became part of the nascent World Championship of Brands (the Mexican test was added as the calendar´s last encounter, after the Tourist Trophy in Dundrod, Great Britain). To comply with FIA´s ruling, the category “Sport Menor” (Smaller Spórt) was added, which was entirely dominated by Porsche with its 55
  14. Eager to repeat in 1952 the “medicine” dose applied to his rivals at 1951, Don Enzo ordered to create the “Ferrari 340 Mexico Vignale”, which only mission was winning in the land of “Tequila”.

  16. Unfortunately the start and end of the “La Carrera Panamericana” is not due to sport, but to political and economic reasons: Supporting Monroe´s Doctrine centenary, in March 28, 1923 OEA´s (Organización de Estados Americanos / American States Organization) V International Conference held at Santiago de Chile, reinforced the Pan Americanism declaring the construction of the Pan-American Highway (from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, United States of America, to Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina) to unify the continent.
