A fine all-round sportsman and top-ranked polo player, Mendit?guy made his mark at the 1951 Peron Cup races when his performances in an Alfa Romeo took the eye. From then on he was a regular local attraction when the big European teams visited for the Grands Prix and the Buenos Aires Libre races.

In 1956 Mendit?guy led the Grand Prix until, missing a gear, he broke the car's half-shaft and slid the Maserati into a fence. Another fine drive in the Mendoza GP yielded only fourth place after low oil pressure had blunted his challenge, but he did share the winning Maserati sports car with Moss in the Buenos Aires 1000 Km.

Third place in the 1957 Grand Prix persuaded Maserati to give him an opportunity to race in Europe, but he had an unhappy sojourn, feeling his car was the least well prepared, while the team opined that he was too hard on the machinery. In mid-season he returned to Argentina in disgust. In 1958 he shared Godia's Maserati to take third place in the Buenos Aires City GP, and in 1960, in the last Argentine Grand Prix for more than a decade, showed his talent had not deserted him by taking a Centro Sud Cooper into fourth place.
