The book entitled “The Ultimate Road Race The Pan American Race” has a measure of 34.5 x 23 cms and begins its first chapter with the stories of how the new stage was conceived when Eduardo León and Pedro Dávila took the risk to bring Mexico back event as is this iconic competition, mention that it was an adventure more than a business, an adventure that has been 30 years.

The second chapter has the name “1989, Second Race, Second Mexican Victory” review as Guillermo Rojas Sr., a legend of national motorsport conquered the title of this second edition. In addition to that it had an extra push by the lovers of the rock, thanks to the presence of Nick Mason and David Gilmor, members of the legendary band Pink Floyd.

Another very interesting chapter is when La Carrera is narrated in 1994 when it surprises the participation of Clay Regazzoni, a former driver of Formula 1 with the Ferrari team, who showed up to participate this year after the accident at the Long Beach GP in 1980, which left him wheelchair bound. With this passion and impetus I am among the main places of competition.
