Argentine 1000 Kilometers race, won by Stirling Moss and Carlos Menditeguy in a Maserati.

Buenos Aires, Argentina. Stirling Moss teamed with local hero Carlos Menditeguy in a 3.0 liter Maserati to win the Argentine 1000 Kilometers World Sports Car race. The race was a battle between Ferrari and Maserati teams since the Jaguar and Aston Martin teams did not enter the event. The 4.9 liter Ferrari Bolidos of Peter Collins/Luigi Musso and Juan Fangio/Eugenio Castellotti led, but both chewed up their rear axles, forcing retirement.
