News from the circuit in reply to an e-mail I sent this week:

"Shuttles will be available from two places in Portimão: one in Marina de Portimão (nearby Praia da Rocha) and the other one in the old Retail Park, which now is just a parking lot at EN125. These will leave every 30 minutes, starting at 7am, and then will run until about 1 hour after the end of track activity."

 

I was told by one in the know that at most GP they have a short range broadcast of commentary that punters can pick up on their phones, so you know what is going on - they told me they have no plans for this "However, we will have live commentary on the track and big screens around the circuit."

Silverstone sell little transistor radios with trackside commentary for a tenner, but no problem following the action if you can see one of the big screens.

12,500 refunds to arrange. I wonder how it will be decided who cannot go. The weather for next weekend is not looking too marvellous either

Apparently so many foreigners wont be able or want to come with the restrictions they wont need to enforce any cancellation. Its only going to be 27.5% capacity so should be plenty of room.
No food nor drink to be taken in so no doubt make up some of the shortfall that way

Let's hope it doesn't completely fall apart so that similar events will come this way. If anyone's there at the moment they will not very gruntled.

A great pity but inevitable.  Once Covid is under some sort of "control", if ever, there shouldn't be any reason not to have a Portuguese event.  Even in this climate the tickets were selling so there shouldn't be a problem in "normal" times.

World Superbikes are held here every year and it’s one of the best if not the best race tracks on the calendar. 

Also Motogp are coming for the first time on the 22nd November. Valentine Rossi et al.

Sunday's weather forecast doesn't look too promising at the moment. Take your rainhats.
