Eitel Danilo Cantoni (born in Montevideo, 4 October 1906 – died in Montevideo, 6 June 1997) was a racing driver from Uruguay. He participated in three World Championship Grands Prix, debuting on 19 July 1952. He was the patron of the Escuderia Bandeirantes outfit, which entered Maserati A6GCM cars for Cantoni and other drivers.[1] He scored no championship points, but also competed in four other Grands Prix during that year, his best finish being seventh at the Modena Grand Prix. Cantoni later competed in South American endurance races.[2]
