Last race of the the 2008 Movistar “Fiat Palio Cup” took place at Santa Rosa autodrome. Armando Watson was crowned champion of this prestigious challenge that includes 10 races throughout the year and more than 30 participating drivers.
The winner in the new driver category was Yazmin Dyer, who fought for first place against more than a dozen rivals. Her exceptional performance on the track won her a place in one of the races of this brand’s categories in Argentinean motor sports events.
The Fiat Palio Cup vehicles are prepared for competition but based on the street version of the car. The Cup’s great success is due to the fact that the cars are kept as close as possible to the street version, drastically reducing costs. The main modifications concern safety measures, including a “safety” cage, fire extinction material, competition seats with special safety belts and exterior and interior power supply shut-off switches.
The 2009 season will again include 10 races, maintaining the cup’s reputation as the countries most important mono-brand event.
