Anniversary of the birth of Ernesto Sábato and Juan M. Fangio

A June 24 but 1911 The Argentine writer, essayist and painter as well as the Argentine motor racing driver were born.

Ernesto Sabato He was the second Argentine, after Jorge Luis Borges, to be awarded the Miguel de Cervantes Prize for Literature, the highest award in Spanish literature.

He was born in Rojas, a city in the province of Buenos Aires, and died on April 30, 2011, 55 days before his 100th birthday.

For its part, Juan Manuel Fangio He was Formula 1 world champion five times, won 24 of his 51 races, stood on the podium 36 times, started in pole position 28 times and set 23 lap records.

He was born in the city of Balcarce on the 23rd, but in the Civil Registry he appears as born on the 24th, and he died on June 17, 1995, in the city of Buenos Aires.

His philosophy was that “a true World Champion must always be the best” and perhaps this helped him retire while at the pinnacle of Formula One.

We remember them through an interview that ´Cacho´ Fontana did with them in 1993, on AM870, and which is preserved in the Historical Archive of National Radio.
