Car spec

History

  • First held in 1967 and one of the founding events in the inaugural 1973 WRC.
  • Initially a mixed surface rally, it switched to a pure gravel format but lost its place in the calendar after bad weather ruined the 2001 event.
  • Organisers moved from the north to the Algarve holiday region in the south and it regained its place in 2007.
  • Named ‘Best Rally in the World’ on five occasions.
