Decent and veteran endurance and road racer in his native land, his one GP attempt was, rather unusually at Monaco, rather than locally. Pian was a mechanic by trade who followed his father Octaviano into the sport. Octaviano raced in the long-distance endurance events held in Argentina in the late 1910's. Pian began his racing in the mid-1930's and took a notable win at the Monte Maiz race in 1936. Pian prepared his own cars and gained a reputation as a tuning expert and preparer. He won the 1949 Mecanica Nacional Fuerza Limitada Championship before moving over to Europe. His time at Monaco was unfortunate as he span on oil dropped by another car and crashed, sustaining a broken ankle when being thrown out of the car. Until the crash, he was the sixth fastest driver in practice.
