A great hidden talent, G?lvez was the early rival and inspiration to Fangio back in their native Argentina both before and after the war. Oscar and his younger brother Juan set new standards of preparation and performance in the gruelling road races so popular there and they were usually seriously threatened only by 'the Maestro'.

G?lvez was equally skilled at the art of circuit racing. Driving an Alfa Romeo, he won the Formula Libre Eva Peron Cup in 1949, beating Fangio, and was highly placed in the same event on a number of other occasions. Invited to drive a works Maserati in 1953 (his only Grand Prix), Oscar finished fifth.

In the absence of Fangio, 'Los G?lvez' continued to dominate South American road racing in their Fords through the fifties and into the early sixties until disaster struck when Juan was killed in a crash early in 1963. Oscar raced on, but retired following a serious accident in 1964 to concentrate on managing the works-supported Ford team.
