Vodaphone Rally of Portugal

Rally fans are in for a treat when the fourth event of the FIA World Rally Championship comes to the Algarve and Alentejo from April 3 to 5.

With three legs, a total distance of 1,164.63 Km and eighteen special stages, the event will count for the three FIA world championships – overall, junior and production car.

The base will be the Algarve Stadium, where two super special stages will be held; one at the beginning of the event and the second closing the rally, for a double-dose of exceptional spectacle and excitement.

Last weekend’s World Rally, in the snow covered terrain of Norway, resulted in Frenchman Sebastien Loeb taking first place in a Citroen C4 ahead of Finland’s Mikko Hirvonen, whilst Matt Wilson of Great Britain finished eighth.

The third round of the twelve round Championship is in Cyprus from March 13 to 15 before the hills of the Algarve welcome the very best rally drivers in the world in early April.
