It's about 200km from Lisbon and was built in 2008. It's a challenging track, featuring two steep downhill gradients that make it very spectacular.The circuit was inaugurated by WorldSBK when they headed to Portugal for their final round of that season - but it's not just a track. The Algarve Motorsports Park is a state-of-the-art complex that boasts the stunning track, a go-kart track, an off-road park, a hotel, an apartment complex, a technology park and a sports complex - it really is the ultimate.
In terms of the actual circuit layout, the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve has 15 turns - nine right-handers and six left-handers. Portimao's undulation is incredible, and the front straight will allow riders to stretch their bike legs, before a unique descent into Turn 1. There's a reason it's called a high-speed roller coaster - it's a thrill for riders and fans alike.
