STANDS AND ACCESS DOORS


The Autódromo Internacional do Algarve has 8 different stands, each served by an access door. The color of the access door corresponds to the color of the stand and is the only door through which your ticket allows access.

The map shows the stands and respective doors, as well as service areas, such as toilets, food and drink outlets, and the approximate location of the giant screens placed to watch the races in various areas of the circuit.

 

PARKING AND TRANSPORTATION


On event days, especially on Sunday, there will be a large influx of cars and people to the Circuit. To avoid long queues, arrive at the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve a few hours in advance. Also, allow time for parking, finding a spot in the car park, and walking to your stand and designated seat. Plan ahead to ensure the best possible experience and to attend all the practices and races on the program.

The Autódromo Internacional do Algarve has prepared several unpaved and one tarmac car parks where you can park your car or motorbike. Access and parking for cars and motorcycles are free this year for almost all parks, so you don’t need to buy a pass. Only the Main Stand park is paid.

The car parks are between 10 and 30 minutes' walk from the circuit, so we recommend choosing the car park closest to your grandstand area to minimize walking time.

Two free car parks will be available in Portimão (Praia da Rocha area) and Lagos (Marina area), from where free buses will depart to the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve. Below you can find the location of the parks. Just present your ticket to access the bus.

Please note that parking spaces are not marked and are subject to availability.

 

ACCESS


Spectators will have two ways to reach the circuit:

– Through dedicated, exclusive, and free shuttles that can be used upon presentation of the pass or ticket, from Portimão (Praia da Rocha, at the location indicated below) and Lagos (Marina, at the location indicated below). Transports are scheduled to start at 7:30 am on event days and will leave at 1-hour intervals. After the day’s program ends, shuttles will operate to take spectators back to Portimão (Praia da Rocha) and Lagos (Marina). See the departure location further down in this Guide.

– By your own car or motorbike, parking in the car parks available around the venue as per the map above.

For easier access to the Circuit, follow the signs and look for the park closest to your seating area.

 

All parks within the AIA (Autódromo Internacional do Algarve) venue will be staffed with permanent security personnel and attendants who will inform spectators about the capacity and availability of each park. Their operating hours will be from 07:00 until two hours after the event concludes. Please note that there are no shuttle buses available for transportation from the park to the Circuit, so please plan for a walking time of up to 30 minutes.

 

ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION


As per regulations, alcohol consumption is strictly prohibited within the circuit perimeter; therefore, alcohol will not be available for purchase at outlets near the outdoor grandstands. Alcohol will only be accessible at bars located outside the perimeter, including those within the Fan Zone and under the Main Grandstand.

Upon entry at the circuit gates, security personnel will electronically scan tickets using barcode readers. These barcodes contain information provided during ticket purchase, necessitating spectators to carry personal identification for entry.

GNR guards will monitor entrances. After entering, signage and staff will assist spectators in locating their stand and allocated seats, ensuring smooth flow.

Failure to comply with staff instructions may result in expulsion from the venue without ticket refunds. Spectators visibly under the influence of alcohol or illegal substances or exhibiting disruptive behavior endangering others may also face expulsion without refund.

 

CIRCUIT EXIT


The venue will close daily approximately at 5:45 PM (Friday and Saturday) or 4:30 PM (Sunday) after the event concludes. Spectators are advised to exit calmly. Signage and staff will assist in orderly departure and ensure social distancing.

 

TRAFFIC AND ARRIVAL TIME


Expect heavy traffic on event days, especially Sunday, with increased numbers of spectators. Plan your journey accordingly, arriving at Autódromo Internacional do Algarve several hours early to avoid lengthy queues.

Allocate time for parking, walking to your grandstand, ticket checks, and finding your designated spot. Ensure a smooth experience to attend all scheduled training sessions and races.

The extensive program offers entertainment from as early as 9:00 AM until the end of the day, with support facilities and giant screens broadcasting events throughout the circuit.

Arrive early for the best experience!

 

BRINGING ITEMS TO THE STAND


You may bring your helmet to the stand; however, there's no official storage. Moto Clube de Portimão provides a nearby service (conditions and costs apply).

The use of professional cameras and video equipment is restricted. Only small, individual containers like bags, backpacks, or wallets are permitted. Storage facilities are unavailable, so ensure personal items' safety.

Entry and exit during races are permitted with ticket presentation. Each movement is logged in the entry control system.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS


To enter the circuit, ensure you have your ticket and an official photo ID (CC, ID, Passport, or Driving License).

 

TRANSPORTATION AND FACILITIES


Shuttle services around the circuit are available for those who prefer not to walk. These shuttles will circulate along the perimeter of the Circuit, following the road that surrounds it. Please note that there are no buses from the Parking Lots to the Circuit area.

TOILETS AND FOOD AND DRINK OUTLETS

MERCHANDISING AND FIRST AID


Merchandise is available for purchase both within and outside the circuit.

 

FIRST AID


A medical post is located near the Main Grandstand entrance to provide assistance in case of emergencies.

 

BRINGING FOOD AND DRINKS


In compliance with regulations enforced by the authorities and consistent with other sporting and recreational events (such as football matches and stadiums), the introduction of food and/or beverages into the Circuit is regulated. Only food items and drinks intended for individual consumption, such as a bottle, sandwich, piece of fruit, or snack, are permitted. For safety reasons, authorities may request that bottles be uncapped upon entry. Food and beverage purchase points are available at various stands.

Food and drinks can be purchased at several locations within the stands, including fixed bars and newly introduced food trucks, offering a variety of culinary options. Due to logistical constraints, it is not feasible to offer the full range of culinary options at every stand. However, there will be diverse alternatives available at all stands.

 

SMOKING POLICIES


Smoking is prohibited in stands, with designated areas provided behind stands for smokers.
