Submitted by on September 16, 2014

Gonzalo Rodríguez GonchiThis upcoming film will tell the tale of Gonzalo “Gonchi” Rodríguez, a much loved Uruguayan who dreamed of racing in F1. He did everything right in order to achieve it, however just before he reached his goal he was killed in a CART accident at Laguna Seca.

Gonzalo “Gonchi” Rodríguez didn’t have the easiest path – he faced many hardships yet stood up and raced with the best. Born in a country in where international motorsport is seen only on television, Gonzalo was a young man who poured everything into achieving his dream of racing Formula One. He was highly successful in F3000, and had just been picked up by Penske when he tragically lost his life during his second CART race. The filmmakers are calling it a story about inspiration and overcoming obstacles through dedication and love. We can’t wait for its release.
