Driving pleasure. Under ideal conditions. Amongst professionals. Following the great success of last year’s winter season, we have put together another attractive package. The Season Finale & Season Warm-Up Algarve is tailored to the requirements of automobile manufacturers and racing teams. From 13-16th December 2018 and 09-17th February 2019 you get the opportunity to prepare for the season 2019 in an exclusive setting. With a maritime climate and six hours of sunshine per day on average, the Autódromo do Algarve in the south of Portugal offers a demanding track layout. At least on one day we will offer an optional night practice session in the darkness. Safety is our biggest concern; therefore, we only allow a maximum of 30 race cars and solely experienced drivers on track. You can choose whether you want to driver your own car or whether you'd like to participate in one of the Black Falcon race cars. Apart from the 2018 Porsche 991 GT3 Cup we also have the brand-new AMG GT4 at your disposal. We also provide top quality and maximum comfort off track. The 5* hotel Vila Vita Parc Resort&Spa is conveniently located by the Atlantic Ocean and only a 25-minute drive away. A perfect place to relax and end a successful day of testing with a vino and Portuguese culinary delights, surrounded by friends or family. All available for best possible conditions: If you book via Black Falcon, you will receive a best-price guarantee on all room categories.

A lift built into the cliff takes you directly down to the beach after you’ve had dinner in one of two high class restaurants. Multiple fitness activities such as tennis, golf and the hotel gym are offered. If you decide to relax after an exhausting day at the track, the Pestana Alvor Praia offers a great SPA area to recharge.
5* Pestana Algarve RaceLocated only 3km from the race track the 5*-hotel Pestana Algarve Race offers stylish and modern rooms for your stay at our event. Use the SPA with Outdoor pool, Indoor pool, Jacuzzi, Sauna, Scottish shower and the Turkish Bath after a long day at the track. Also, the hotel offers apartments for up to four persons who also can use all facilities of the hotel as well.
High class catering for your team at the track
The Autodromo do Algarve is located about 20 km outside of the city of Portimao. The location is remote and makes it hard to get a decent lunch for your team during the short break at midday. Therefore, we offer a great solution for your lunch and dinner directly at the track. We provide a buffet during the lunch break and after the afternoon session to make sure your team does not leave the track hungry. A top-class caterer provides delicious food in our tent behind the pit building. On top you get drinks and snacks in our hospitality during the whole day.
