Matías Rossi, the driver of the Nova Racing that runs with Ford, stayed with the Grand Prix Ciudad de Rosario, in the framework of the fifth round of the Turismo Carretera calendar. Gabriel Ponce de León (Ford) and Christian Ledesma (Chevrolet) completed the podium, respectively.
The final started with wet track procedure because the asphalt tape had not completely dried up, so Ponce de León started in the first place and, behind him, Rossi did the same.
The first turn had many different situations, characteristic that allowed to foresee a race full of changes and vicissitudes. In the third corner of the track, Rossi did not make the ideal turning radius, Aguirre tried to take advantage and, in the desire to advance, lost two places to Ledesma and Castellano, respectively.
In addition, Leandro Mulet got lost, resulting in the entry of the security car, and Martin Ponte, with the Dodge of the A & P Competition, relegating him to the thirty-ninth place.
In the relaunch, which was just developed in the third round, Diego de Carlo's Chevrolet got stuck on the bench and generated the second raid of the security car. Emiliano Spataro, the representative of the Renault Sport Torino Team,had to leave becauseof the breakage of a driveshaft. Ponce
de León, from the tip did not take risks when the race returned to its normal course, as the Juninense neutralized Rossi's attempts to overstep to secure himself in the leadership. But from the seventh lap, Rossi's pressure began to be tireless, which shortened the gap that existed until that moment.
The third neutralization of the race came in the eighth turn: Federico Pérez, with the Dodge of Coiro Dole Racing, suffered a backstroke from Ponte and could never return to the track. Not only the Juninense was out of competition; the one born in Concordia, by order of the sports commissioner, was excluded by the maneuver .
In the tenth round, the local Ardusso made a top that led him to the 35th place. Later on, the Torino driverwould end up abandoningbecause of an inconvenience in the transmission. Alan Ruggiero, who also starred throughout the weekend,was affected by a problem in the box, a fact that led him hopelessly to the drop out of the race.
Shortly afterwards, a maneuver involving Castellano, Aguirre and Ledesma ended with dismissals and penalties: Dodge's reef risked passing Ledesma, but the miscalculation produced a touch with Castilian and the latter's miscalculation. Ledesma came out unharmed, and retained the third position, but Aguirre, later, was reloaded and positioned behind the one born in Lobería.
While this happened on the last stretch of the track — before the last curve — Rossi began to develop a maneuver on the first corner of the circuit that would allow him nothing more or nothing less than to win the race.
The Del Viso rider scored the braking before reaching the second corner and beat Ponce de León to jump to the first place.
The race, there, had a turning point: the security car entered and the Nova Racing car had to relaunch (for the first time) in the first placement. In just three laps as leader, the Missile had already pulled more than two and a half seconds apart from Ponce de León.
The assiduous entry of the security car was the main factor by which the final ended by time(25 laps were held out of the 30 originally agreed).
Rossi's dominance over the weekend was crowned in the best possible way: he unobjectionably won his 25th TC career and climbed to the tenth rank of the contest (still led by Urcera). In addition, with the triumph, he met one of the mandatory requirements to be able to fight for the title of the category.
