WELCOME TO A UNIQUE CLASSIC CARS TOUR COMBINED WITH AN INCREDIBLE JOURNEY.
The first Lorenzini Auto Tour will be held from the 18th to the 22nd of October in Portugal and is a Regularity and a Competition challenge for cars manufactured before 1978*.
A world class motor sports event, it combines the exhilarating atmosphere of classic motor sports with the extraordinary beauty of the country. All this, whilst enjoying the well-known Portuguese hospitality in first class hotels with outstanding gastronomy and wines.
We can guarantee it will be an unforgettable experience.
The choice of naming this event Lorenzini is twofold: Firstly it is a tribute to Louis Lorenzini, a charming Englishman, who was a leader in the world of restoring and racing vintage cars in both Portugal and England. Secondly a tribute to the team that worked at Lorenzini and led to its success.
The first Lorenzini tour is lead by a team with a wealth of experience. In our team, we have the most experienced, and the best in the business. For example, our Race Director, Mr. Pedro Almeida, is the most respected race organiser in Portugal, having been Race Director in 14 WRC.
The 1200km race runs between the two legendary circuits, Estoril and Braga, and 12 (closed) special stages.
Starting in Estoril, at the famous International Circuit and then from there to Comporta, Viseu, and Douro, with the finish in Oporto. Along the course, you will enjoy exquisite 5-star hotels and pleasant stops full of nice surprises.
Entrants and their entourage, whether they choose to participate in “Regularity Category”, a more relaxed version, or embrace the full “Competition Category” - where the adrenaline rush will not be
lacking - will regardless of category follow the exact same route.
Drivers and Co-Drivers participating in the “Competition Category” must be holders of a valid FIA license.
For “Regularity Category” entrants without a racing license, there will be an option to obtain a provisional license that can be issued on the spot by the Portuguese Automobile Federation (FPAK).
*an exception can be studied for cars of special historical interest
