Route

  • Hugely popular event on technical and tricky gravel roads based around Matosinhos, near Porto, in the north of the country.
  • Thursday afternoon start at picturesque Guimarães Castle is followed by big power slides for the crowds at Lousada rallycross circuit.
  • The first full day heads north for reconfigured stages around Viano do Castelo, near the Spanish border. It ends with two tests in Braga’s historic streets. 
  • Saturday is the longest leg, journeying east to demanding roads in the Cabreira Mountains and including a brand new stage.
  • Sunday is all about Fafe and its enormous crowds. All four stages are in the municipality, including a double pass over the legendary test itself.

Challenge

  • Sandy roads ensure grip is at a premium for the early starters during the first pass through the stages. 
  • Rocks and deep ruts present an altogether different hazard for the second pass, often requiring teams to raise the ride height on their cars to avoid mechanical damage.
