Between the Monchique mountain and the sandy beaches in Algarve you find something different...Circuit where you find fast and lowdy cars. There is also carting cars.

Portimao circuit is an impressive track found nestling in the hills to the north of the town of the same name. The thing that sets it apart from most other circuits is simply how steep some of the inclines and the number of blind corners...More

Amazing Technical Racing Track with many elevation changes and a beautiful straightaway. Two days of heavy use at an event and I was in love. The garage facilities were large and clean. Highly recommended.

We raced Caterhams here and it is a fantastic challenge. Gradients, variety, plenty of run off but so technical. This is a drivers' circuit. Let's hope we can race here every year.

Hi I am looking to attend the Superbike World Championship on the first weekend in June, however we will be staying in Lagos, which is 30 mins by car and a puzzle to get to using public transport. I wondered if anyone knew of any shuttle buses to/from the circuit for this weekend? or if there are any reasonable hire car companies that allow under 25 drivers? (my boyfriend is 24... so not far out!) Thanks Lauren
