    Note to editor: Because of the weather first, and the time of day, sundown, it was impossible to film the second part of the race. But, as you can see for the information, it was practically the same all through the 2nd part as in the first.

    Background: The recent announcement by the Maserati company that they will discontinue to race their cars adds to the likelihood that World Champion driver, Juan Fangio will retire at the end of this year.

    Fangio, who had already expressed his intention of withdrawing from big racing, was particularly anxious to win the last big race of the year--the Sao Paulo Grand Prix of Brazil. And his wish came true.

    Before the race, however, he said he expected a tough struggle from Brazilian Ace, Francisco (Chico) Landi and the truth was that Landi may well have won but for mechanical troubles.

    Instead Fangio, driving with all his impeccable game and skill brought the (Number 4) Maserati past the chequered flag in first place with Henrique Cabini (6) second and Landi (82), third.
