Algarve Classic Festival - Car HireStarting in 2014 and in the next years, following a restructuring process, the Algarve Classic Festival will be organized by Diogo Ferrao. The racer/organizer behind the successful Iberian Historic Endurance, Mr Ferrao will work with Autodromo Internacional do Algarve (AIA) to bring new blood to this event.

Paulo Pinheiro, speaking for the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve, is enthusiastic about ACF2014: “The Portimão circuit is delighted to host again the Algarve Classic Festival. We are certain that the 2014 edition will be a success, thanks to the important synergies established with Diogo Ferrao, who will apply his skills, know-how, enthusiasm and passion for classic cars to help bring to Portimao even more exciting races.”

Diogo Ferrão, the organizer of the event, added “I am very motivated to make ACF grow. Thisevent has all the ingredients to be a “must do” for all European gentlemen drivers. Benefittingfrom my experience, we are going to take from the best examples, though customized for thelocal specificities. First of all, this event is organized having in mind those drivers who bring fantastic machines to Portugal. In the public point of view, I would like to target the event to the true enthusiasts, like club members, those who can appreciate the beauty and the unique quality of hearing an Aston Martin DB4 Zagato or a Ferrari 512M racing at full throttle.

The 2014 edition of the Algarve Classic Festival (ACF) will be held from 17-19 October.
