Bernardo D. Martínez MD


Carlos Yuyo Lepro and his Giulia Sprint GTA, are the main protagonists of this unique narrative. s/n 613642 was one of the first GTAs prepared by Autodelta and curiously enough reached Uruguay through Lepro and a group of his friends who assisted him to purchase the car. With the passage of time, both its owner as well as the GTA itself became almost legendary. Lepro died at an early age in a road accident, on his way to a Turismo de Carretera race in Argentina, but he left behind him the unforgettable memory of his triumphant win in the 1965 Gran Premio and the 1966 La Mar y Sierras.

Loads of period photos of cars and races.
