The dream of the great race track has become true in Centenario, Province of Neuquén and it will make a revolution among car racing fans all over the country. It has been named Parque de la Provincia del Neuquén.
Experts on this matter assert openly that this track is a real masterpiece in which the presence of car racing experience in the last few years and the new technologies can be perceived. Even laying out a kart racing circuit among its tracks is being considered.
Not only does the work aim at including Centenario in the list of top racing tracks in the country, but also at encouraging regional categories to be shown off so that, race after race, their pilots may represent Neuquén in the top categories.

As for the circuits of this new racetrack, you can say that four drawings allow you to enjoy this new track. The main circuit is 4,330 meters long.
The track, in any of its parts, measures 15 meters wide, which allows the cars to develop great speeds even in the curves, what in the automotive environment is known like "to enter in depth".
The starting line was designed so that they can drop up to 45 cars at the same time, which shows that the racetrack will quickly be taken into account by the larger categories for a future annual date.
The inauguration weekend, which will of course remain in the memory of all attendants as well as of those who could not make it to the races, was simply spectacular from all perspectives.
Over 35 thousand enthusiasts proved their passion for cars and showed that Centenario may become, in the short term, the venue for an annual TC 2000 race and even for the top local car racing category, namely Touring Car Racing.
While the National Anthem was sounding and with the applause of most local, provincial and national authorities, a dreamed-of place was officially inaugurated.
The first important race, which would crown this inauguration ceremony, was won by Mariano Werner, from the Toyota Team. Thus, he opened the new Centenario racing track with all his talent and an average speed of 147 kilometers per hour.
Victory was complete and invited two other pilots onto the podium: Leonel Pernía (from the Honda Team) and Matías Rossi (from the Renault Team), who finished in the second and third place, but also enjoyed the thrill of trying out the new circuit for the first time ever.
According to the winner, the test was not easy at all. Also, the rain made matters worse; therefore, the pilots had to be alert not to go off track. But everyone was satisfied with the new venue.
Now it all depends on daily hard work for the dream to be part of the top car racing categories. The rest will just flow.
