Biography

A Uruguayan amateur, Alberto Uría twice started the Argentine Grand Prix during the mid 1950s.

His self-run Maserati A6GCM was fitted with a 250F engine for the 1955 race. Uría qualified last and retired from his GP debut. He finished 14th in the Formule Libre Buenos Aires GP two weeks later, six laps behind Juan Manuel Fangio’s winning Mercedes-Benz.

A year later and Uría’s Maserati was once more on the back row of the grid for the Argentine GP. He shared it with countryman Oscar González and they finished sixth and last. Again, Uría entered the Buenos Aires GP but he did not start for what was his final attempt to race alongside Europe’s GP elite.

He continued to compete in South American events with a Corvette V8 now powering his Maserati.
