Located in the Algarve region on the southern coast of Portugal, the Portimão track is very unique and famous for the physical effort required throughout the weekend. Consisting of climbs and descents, it is a real roller coaster when you go up over 300 km/h on your motorbike. As if that weren’t enough, filled angles are also scattered throughout the circle, particularly on 5 and 13.
