Algarve Classic Festival

Algarve Classic Festival 2023 returns in October

One of the most anticipated events on the European classic cars calendar is back at the Algarve Race Track on October 27, 28 and 29.

With just three months to go before the return of one of the most charismatic and important events on its calendar, the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve is gearing up for a new edition of the Algarve Classic Festival.

In 2022, 224 classic cars lined up on the starting grids and were displayed in the circuit’s paddock during the three-day event. In a unique and magical environment for motor racing fans, the 80s F1 cars, such as the six-wheel Tyrrel, the Williams with which the Finn Keke Rosberg won the Monaco GP in 1983 and the first Lotus with a chassis built in carbon, stood out.

The Endurance cars were also a great highlight for many thousands who travelled to the Algarve’s International racetrack.

In 2023, the objective is to repeat the exclusive list of participants for what many consider one of the reference events on the European calendar of classic cars. Between October 27 and 29, the organisation looks forward to hosting countless car lovers from all over Europe to witness this unique spectacle.

“Last year, we had 224 participants in the most diverse categories of the competition. This year, we want to surpass that record. The Algarve Classic Festival is a highlight on many drivers and car racing enthusiasts’ calendars. It is a unique opportunity to see historic cars on the track and in competition, bringing back memories to many of those who visit us”, says Paulo Pinheiro, CEO of Parkalgar.

This year, “We are once again preparing the event in detail. We will also create more attractions for those who come to our circuit over the weekend to create an environment for the whole family, from the youngest to the oldest generations, who will undoubtedly enjoy the magic and unique atmosphere that has always been experienced at the Algarve Classic Festival.”

In what will be an intense month, with plenty of action on the Algarve asphalt, the Algarve Classic Festival will take to the track a week after the double round of the European Le Mans Series that will close the 2023 season of that same championship.

Tickets can already be purchased online, costing between €7,50 for the final on Sunday and €55 for a VIP three-day pass.
