Trajectory

Florencia Cutro is the daughter of a retired rally driver, Oscar Cutro, [ 9 ] who was champion of the Entre Ríos regional championship, the Rally Entrerriano , five times. [ 3 ] Cutro considers him as his greatest reference and support within his sports career. [ 2 ] [ 9 ]

Unlike her sister Nadia, who was first navigator and then pilot, [ 11 ] [ 3 ] Florence was only navigator; [ 1 ] [ 11 ] He began his career in rallies as navigator sister Nadia in 2005, once came of age, since before you were not allowed to compete. [ 11 ] [ 3 ]

Florencia had the support of her family from the beginning of her sports career; [ 3 ] [ 1 ] However, along with her sister had to prove he could be a good competitor to be imposed on such sexist prejudices with which they are frequently found. [ 12 ] [ 1 ] However, Florence took the situation with some grace, because for her "run and beat the men is a great satisfaction. The funny thing about them is that they compete with their wives, sisters, and their daughters are our fans. " [ 1 ]

Additionally, the good results achieved since her sporting beginnings earned her the respect of the rest of the competitors [ 1 ] and when she reached the highest category of the Argentine Rally within the Tango Rally Team, she and her sister "made them feel like queens of the world. rally from day one ". [ 10 ]

Entrerriano Rally

Cutro's first participation in rallies was in the Entrerriano Rally championship in 2005. She participated in four events at the end of the season and the results obtained encouraged her to continue participating in the specialty. [ 11 ] Her first race was the Urdinarrain Rally, [ 2 ] in the Entre Ríos region, [ 3 ] aboard a Volkswagen Gol owned by a friend of her father, who would give the car to her now. his sister a year later. The car, however, was not a competition car, but a street car, since his father wanted his learning to be from the most basic concepts. [ 9 ]

In the 2007 season, already aboard a car prepared for competitions, [ 3 ] she achieved her first victory in rallies by winning the Urdinarrain Rally [ 1 ] and was runner-up navigator in the N2 category. [ 13 ] The following year, she participated in the N3 category of the same championship, where she was the sailing champion and general runner-up of the championship. [ 3 ] [ 14 ]

With the retirement of her father at the end of the season, Florencia and her sister inherited their racing car. [ 9 ] [ 3 ] The following season, in 2009, Cutro was sailing champion in its category (this time the N7, the nature of the legacy car) again. [ 15 ]

Argentine Rally

In 2010, after talks held between the president of the Entre Ríos Rally, Abraham Gilitchensky, [ 16 ] and Marcos Ligato , Cutro began his participation in the Argentine Rally with the Tango Rally Team within the N4L category. [ 17 ] The first test he took part in the new championship was the Traslasierra Rally, in Mina Clavero , where he finished in sixth position in his category. [ 18 ] The first three tests in which he participated were aboard a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VIII and in the remaining seven he did so with the IX version of the same model,[ 11 ] to accumulate a total of ten disputed tests, in nine of which he managed to score. In the San Luis Rally he obtained his best result, fourth overall. [ 19 ]

Cutro sailed his sister in the Rally Argentina within the IRC in March, [ 11 ] finishing in position 19 of the general table [ 20 ] and in first place in his category. [ 21 ]

That same year, she and her sister were observed by the Commission on Women and Sport Motor FIA , whose president [ 22 ] and the Coordinator of the Italian chapter [ 22 ] Michèle Mouton and Fabrizia Pons , respectively contacted directly to congratulate them on the results obtained. [ 19 ] Because of this follow-up, the Cutro sisters' team was nominated for the Pirelli Star Driver squad . [ 19 ]

Cutro's participation in the Argentine Rally in 2011 was initially with the same Tango Rally Team; however, at the end of the season she was signed by Scuderia Fiat (the official Fiat team in the championship) to participate in the maximum category of the Argentine Rally, the Maxi Rally , aboard a Fiat Punto MR . [ 23 ] The General Madariaga Rally represented Cutro's debut in the new category. [ 24 ]

The 2012 season was one of learning and accumulation of experience for Cutro and his sister, by decision of their team, [ 25 ] due to the novelty that the Maxi Rally car represented for them. [ 26 ] [ 27 ]

During that season's San Luis Rally, Cutro suffered a racing accident that left a minor trauma to one shoulder. However, the car in which he was participating was rendered useless, [ 28 ] so his participation in the Goya Rally, the test following that of San Luis, was in the same Fiat Punto as the previous tests, since his team lacked time to finalize the preparation of a new Fiat Palio due to the closeness of dates between the two tests. [ 29 ]

In Concepción del Uruguay he returned to participate in a Palio MR, [ 30 ] although he had to abandon it due to a mechanical failure.´ [ 31 ] Ultimately, that would be the closing of the season for Cutro, since he could not attend the last date of the championship in Córdoba. [ 32 ]

In the 2013 season, Cutro will participate in class 9 in the new "Junior" category of the championship thanks and a scholarship granted by the championship organizers, [ 33 ] since he had to leave the Scudería Fiat because it will not have the official support of the factory. [ 26 ] His debut in the category along with the rest of the bacados is scheduled for the third date of the championship. [ 34 ]
