    As the above person said, it's something in Spanish.































    Racing Santander is actually Real Racing Club de Santander.

    From the FIFA.com web site:































    Racing Club































    City: Buenos Aires































    Founded: 25 March 1903















































    Official Website:















    http://www.racingclub.com/















































    The club?s origins date back more than a century to a meeting that took place at the Buenos Aires Mercado de Hacienda on 25 March 1903. It was there that officials from two of the district?s rival clubs ? Foot Ball Club Barracas and Colorados Unidos ? sat down to discuss a possible merger. With neither club long established, the decision was taken to put aside their differences and join forces. After a call was made to give the new club ?an original, distinctive and appealing? name, one of those present, Germán Vidaillac, showed his fellow officials a French automobile magazine called Racing. There and then, the decision was taken to go with this name, and Racing Club was founded.

    I don't know, but my favorit Belgian football team calls "Racing Club Mechelen" (KRC Mechelen - Officiële site - Hoofdpagina) but they have no racing history. :cry:
