Angel Rosel Meunier
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 15, 1925
Death: Jan. 16, 1965

Turismo Carretera Driver. Well known for being the cousin of Marcos Ciani, Meunier also crafted Chevrolet´s chasis replicas for Turismo Carretera. Meunier and his co-driver Umberto Lorenzetti lost their lives in an accident on Ruta 6 during the Vuelta de Carlos Paz - Segunda Edición de la Semana de la Velocidad. Meunier and Lorenzetti were attacking the first leg of that event - a 426-kilometer long stretch linking Carlos Paz to San Francisco - when their Dodge suddenly shimmed and crossed the road when going down a paved straightaway, three kilometers before the town of General Fotheringham. The car drove sideways for some two hundred meters, gradually leaving the road. The Dodge then went down a small embankment on the side of the pavement, ran close to the culvert along it and crashed sidewise against the wall of the culvert of a rural road that crossed Ruta 6. The impact was on the co-driver's side, and the car was completely destroyed. Both occupants were killed instantly. It is understood that the accident was caused by a failure in Dodge's differential.
