IN THE SPORT THING...
"In August of 1969 three Torinos were entered in the 84 Hours of Nurburgring in Germany -- in a chancy advertising and sport operation.
"The delegation presiding over it included Juan Manuel Fangio, Tibor Teleki, and Carlos Lobosco, who coordinated the effort. The motors were handled by engineer Lepper, but the attendance of Oreste Berta hinted at who was really in charge.
"The car number 3, driven by Eduardo Copello, Oscar Mauricio Franco, and someone named "Larry" surprised its rivals by finishing first in its category! It might have won in the general classification for number of laps, but a penalty took the absolute victory out of their hands. Today the story of the penalty sounds absurd -- suggesting the Torino should have stopped in the pits to repair the exhaust pipe but was penalized five laps and finished down that many from the number it had actually completed.
