In the happiest moment of your life, Jose Maria Lopez had a gesture that exalts him: he celebrated the triumph he achieved in the 24 Hours of Le Mans and with a Argentinian flag In your hands. And even better he clung to her more when received the precious trophy which certifies him as the winner of one of the most important races in the world.

This attitude is not new. Already in his time as a kart driver every time he triumphed outside the country brought out the banner to leave no doubt about its origins. This custom continued through the years and the categories through which it passed.

That is why it is not difficult to find old photos of Pechito celebrating with the blue and white in his times in the Formula Renault or Eurocup. And more here in the time in the WTCC, where he won three titles between 2014 and 2016; or right now in the World Endurance, which has him as the current monarch thanks to the success achieved in 2020.
