oh boy. I hope this is right.
I knew from day one it was designed and built toF1 standard, indeed several F1 teams have run tests there, including Lewis when he was at McLaren.

No mention of it at the mo across the BBC & SKY Sorts platforms. Hope this is factual reporting and not pie in the sky!

It seems the cars will have to maintain 2 metres clearance all round.....

I’ve had reports from Holland and local that this is on. 

It was originally built with F1 in mind but the infrastructure has never been in place and the failure to build the onsite hotel was always a stumbling block. 

However, this year is soooooo different for obvious reasons, so it just might happen. 

If you’re interested Cubsur, I’m going. Wifey says no chance.....silly girl.

And another source reporting the same, not a done deal.
This does say F1 will confirm by the end of July, so watch this space.

If TV rights are in place, then it may go ahead even if spectators are not permitted.

There is a precedent in that it has been confirmed that the final stages of the European (football) Champions League will take place in Lisbon, presumably also without spectators present.

Changed the topic title to be more representative of the event.

It looks like it could be confirmed soon:

CONFIRMED!

Portimao on 23 to 25 October will host an F1 GP for their first time, from official F1 website..


I may well have to jiggle some dates!
