The Autodromo do Algarve Circuit, simply known as Portimão by racing fans, is nestled in the Portuguese mountains, making it a fitting location for a race action.

That's why TrackDays.co.uk offers the opportunity to book a track day directly for an upcoming event for both car and bike meetings.

The On Track Experience

They dub Portimão as Portugal's answer to Nürburgring. Little wonder, the circuit is a roaring wild ride consisting of fast sweeping sections, tricky twists and turns, and long stretches for drivers to really put their foot to the floor.

Elevation changes are also embedded into the track's layout, with the 4.6km lap sending drivers swooping up hill and down dizzying declines, eventually culminating in a plunge down to the final right turn at Galp.

This makes TrackDays.co.uk's Portimão driving experience a thrilling and challenging race experience for visitors, demanding drivers to draw on every ounce of their skill to navigate each straight, turn and decline.

The Off Track Experience

Opened in 2008 after a construction time of just seven months, Portimão was the brainchild of the esteemed designer Ricardo Pina and engineer Paulo Pinheiro.

Costing £180m to develop, Portimão offers not only an exhilarating driving experience, but is also kitted out with first-class facilities. This makes the complex more of a resort than a racing circuit, with a range of hospitality options, and a VIP tower with 15,000 seats.

What's more, its location in the Algarve puts visitors in one of Europe's most popular tourist destinations. World famous for its stunning scenery, beautiful beaches and idyllic climate, many visitors make a holiday out of their visit to Portimão!

A History of Racing in Portugal

While Portimão is a relatively new track, Portugal is no stranger to racing. The nation is steeped in Formula 1 history, boasting sixteen official world championship races over the years.

In these races from yesteryear there have been a grid row of legendary winners, with plenty of memorable moments. This includes Sir Stirling Moss' admirable display of sportsmanship in pleading for title rival, and eventual winner, Mike Hawthorn to get a race disqualification rescinded.

So, by racing at Portimão with TrackDays.co.uk, you will be carving your own little place in the proud history of Portuguese motorsport.
