Portugal Classic and the Portuguese Historic Vehicle Club, is pleased to organise the 30th edition of the Altice - Algarve Classic Cars on July 14th, 15th and 16th, an historic regularity rally which is included in the calendar of the FPAK and the International Federation of Historic Vehicles.

Once again we will have our support base at the Tivoli Marina Vilamoura and the Vilamoura Marina from where we will set off on road courses that have been replanned with interest, in order to meet the competitors' satisfaction, and we are convinced that they will be appreciated by all the participants.

This year is a very special year for the Algarve Classic Cars, we celebrate 30 years, an important milestone in motorsport in Portugal, which fills us with pride. We are grateful for the trust of thousands of participants, for the commitment and confidence of our sponsors, but mainly for the persistence and work developed by all employees, who year after year, for 30 years, contributed to the evolution and recognition of a unique event, for its quality and longevity. 

What we achieved between 1993 and 2023 will certainly remain in our memory and in the memory of the thousands of participants, but with a strong determination for the future, convinced that we will project the Altice - Algarve Classic Cars with innovation, adapted to the new classic car times in the world, promoting the classic car as culture and historical heritage.

This edition will also remember its source of inspiration, the nostalgic Pedras del Rei Rally, which took place from 1982 to 2007, with great success, acknowledged by all classic car fans.

The realization of a stage ending in Pedras del Rei, with the famous cocktail and lunch at the resort that hosted for over 40 years the Rally that would change the reality of classic cars in Portugal.

Altice Portugal will once again be the Naming Sponsor of the Algarve Classic Cars, and we assume this connection with pride and gratitude for the bet and confidence of a company of reference and great prestige.

We are certain that the partnership we have established with Altice Portugal contributes decisively to the affirmation of the event internationally.

Murganheira, one of the sponsors of Altice - Algarve Classic Cars, will welcome all participants, with its products, before the Murganheira Stage, and will also reward the great winners of the rally, with its prestigious sparkling wines.

The Porsche Centre Faro will again be one of the main sponsors of the event and they will provide to the competitors who participate with classic Porsche cars, several special prizes and we are convinced that it will be a good reason for their participation with a classic Porsche.

As usual, and in order to meet the demands of the participants and to improve the efficiency of the organization, we have again created two courses:

Soft Race (Touring Course), in which the participant will have to perform in an optional way 4 special classification tests, and the possibility to have a more relaxed participation, privileging the social part.

Full Race (Regularity Route), in which the participant will have to run the 18 special classification tests and in which the organisation will be very strict in what concerns the fulfilment of the race rules.

The timing of the event will be done again by My Time, with the most modern and innovative timing system for sports events, which will transmit the results online.

We would like to mention that accommodation is optional and limited in the number of rooms in each of the hotels, for this fact and the high hotel occupation in the dates of the event, we suggest booking your accommodation as soon as possible.

The organization has an agreement with a car transportation company, with special conditions for competitors, in order to facilitate the transportation of vehicles from Porto and Lisbon. We would like to mention that the organization will not be responsible for the transport but will make the connection between the competitor and the transport company.

Considering that in the last edition of the event, the inscriptions were more than 120, which forced us to limit the final number of participants, we would be very grateful to you for sending us your inscription form filled in and with a picture of your car, until the 7th of July, so that it can appear in the event's catalogue that we are preparing for this year.

With our most cordial greetings, we hope to be able to count on your presence on the 14th of July until 6pm, to carry out its technical and documentary verification.

Kind regards,
Luis Brito
