From this year the Rally de Portugal Historico will expand its eligibility criteria to welcome cars built up to 1986. However, in order not to discourage the earlier cars, always a feature of this event, the Classic Category, for period E and F cars (1946 to 1965) and under 1600cc cars up to 1967, will have its own podium and the winner will receive “an exceptional prize.” Another novelty this year will be the running of some regularity sections on closed roads. The 15th edition of this popular event will be on 4-10 October, starting and ending in the resort town of Estoril as part of the ‘Speed Week’ celebrations there. Entries are now open. See rallyportugalhistoric.eu for details.
