Algarve Classic Cars Festival 2012

The largest Festival of Classics of the Iberian Peninsula has, since 2009, been a constant presence at the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve and 2012 will be no exception. From 18 to 21 October, now the Algarve Classic Festival is back for another enjoyable event that will surely be in everyone's memory.

Algarve Car Hire and the Algarve Classic Cars Festival 2012The Algarve Classic Festival 2012 will bring to the magnificent Portimao circuit several runs as the Stirling Moss Trophy for pre-'61 vehicles, the Motor Racing Legends Pre-War Sports Car Series, the JD Classics Challenge for touring cars from 1966 - 85, U2TC for 2-liter GTs, the '1000km 'pre-'72 GT & Sports Car Cup pre-'66 GTs and sportscars pre-'63 among other classes yet to be announced.

For Paulo Pinheiro, Administrator Autódromo Internacional do Algarve this event has become a benchmark in our circuit: "Some pilots and organizers were worried about the possibility of this event no longer takes place annually, but this is not the case. Confirm that the Algarve Classic Festival is a firm fixture for 2012, and will be an annual event oriented from now. We take great pride in this event. Algarve Classic Festival is not prepared to stay here but to continue to grow. "

Duncan Wiltshire of Motor Racing Legends, which will be responsible for three races in October, said: "When I arrived here in 2009, we were not sure that our riders would find the circuit, since it has the same ups and downs of about 32 meters which represents a challenge technically tricky for pilots. Some competitors have adapted immediately, while others were naturally apprehensive. But at the end of that first week-end only hear praise. Algarve has become one of the favorite events of our pilots. "

Meanwhile, Carol Spagg the Historic Motor Racing News and driving the U2TC and '1000km ', is glad the annual event has been relaunched as a festival even bigger and better: "There were rumors about the future of this event, but as already observed in previous years the optimism, commitment and professionalism of the whole team behind this event, including Paulo Pinheiro and your entire staff, I am sure we will have a range of very good races and we will be very well received in Portimão. Pilots love the circuit and have already registered for this year more than in previous years. "
