TUERO OFFERS HIS HELMET TO THE PRESIDENT OF ARGENTINA MENEM
The young Esteban Tuero, currently the only one Argentinean driver
in the Formula 1 Championship, was welcome yesterday evening by the
President of the Republic of Argentina Carlos Sal Menem, in his
residencial estate at Olivos, 20 kms far from Buenos Aires.
The driver offered his helmet to the President who particularly
appreciated his gift both in virtue of his past experience as a
rally racer, when he was Governor of la Rioja District, and in
memory of his son Carlitos (died two years ago) who took part in
the N Category Rally World Championship.
Esteban is expected to come back to Italy next Monday, in order to
get over the jet-lag and to carry on his physical training in view
of the next race of the season, at Spa-Francorchamps.
