This is THE novelty on the 2020 calendar: a final held for the first time in Portugal on a circuit that really sorts out the men from the boys in an ideal geographical setting. On Sunday 11th October the champions in the eight grids by Peter Auto will be announced!
Only a handful of competitors can boast of having already raced on the Estoril circuit in 2011 when Classic Endurance Racing was the curtain-raiser to the Le Mans Series meetings. For the others it’ll be a real discovery – a twisty undulating layout marked in particular by the Corkscrew and the Parabolica. Although this circuit is the most modern in the season by Peter Auto, it already has a rich history, in particular in Formula 1: Ayrton Senna’s first victory (1985), a stunning duel between Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna (1988), Ricardo Patrese’s spectacular “flight” (1992) and Jacques Villeneuve’s incredible overtake of Michael Schumacher (1996).
Finishing the season in the south of Europe also fulfills a desire to extend the holiday season by basking in the gentle heat of the Indian summer. The sun, the sea and the proximity of Lisbon make Estoril the ideal destination to bring down the curtain on 2020 on a high note and celebrate the champions in the eight grids by Peter Auto: 2.0L Cup, Classic Endurance Racing 1 & 2, Endurance Racing Legends, Group C Racing, Heritage Touring Cup, Sixties’ Endurance, The Greatest’s Trophy.
