Estoril + Portimao

Th-Tu 22-27 Sep 2022



Portimao is a port city, located at the mouth of the Rio Arade.
The fish industry is an important source of income in this city.

The new port of Portimao

On the other side of the new port of Portimao lies Ferragudo.


In addition, Portimao is also an important trading town, and the large beach of Praia da Rocha is an important attraction.

Praia da Rocha

Navigating the old trade route via the Rio Arade to Silves is another tourist attraction.

In 2017 we went on tour with this fantastic boat

Near Portimao, 6 km away, is Alvor, a picturesque village with a beach within walking distance.


At 35 km - east of Portimao - lies Albufeira, which has become one of the most important and busiest tourist resorts in Portugal.


Another pearl in the Portuguese Algarve is the port city of Lagos, located 25 km west of Portimao.

Circuit | Portimao

The Portimao circuit was first used for the World SBK competition in October 2008.

A year later - in 2009 - we organized the first EYBIS event over there.
Since then, we 've returned every year.

Rea won both World SBK races in the Algarve in 2017

In 2020 - the famous "Corona year" - both Formula 1 and MotoGP came to the fantastic Portimao circuit for the first time.

Portuguese hero Miguel Oliveira took pole position with a scorching 1.38,892.
This was also the fastest time ever driven over there with a two-wheeler.

The day after, he also won the race with great dominance.


Estoril is a very popular resort in Portugal, in the picturesque municipality of Cascais.

At the beach you will find several cafes and clubs where the party starts in the evening.

Estoril is also an ideal holiday destination for those who love golf.
There are beautiful golf courses and special golf hotels.


The Estoril coast is close to Lisbon.

Furthermore Estoril is known for the "Autodromo do Estoril" and the huge casino.

The GP circuit of Estoril was built in 1972.

Between 1984 and 1996, 13 Formula 1 races were held.
Ayrton Senna won his first GP F1 in 1985 @ Estoril.

Between 2000 and 2012, 13 MotoGP races were held.
Valentino Rossi won 5 times the 500 cc / MotoGP race.
In 2006, Pedrosa crashed out his former teammate Hayden, making the latter almost miss the world title.

In 2020 - the famous "Corona year", the re-emerging circuit of Estoril suddenly got a WorldSBK race.

That same year there was also a brand new FIM EWC World Championship endurance race of 12 hours on the program: the 12 Hours of Estoril.

    Download waiver of liability

    We will not verify this, it 's only for your own comfort / safety, especially in Spain and Portugal.

    VERY IMPORTANT: make sure to have your "European Health Insurance Card" (EHIC) with you. By showing this card, people know - in the domain of health (and injury) insurance - that you're completely covered in your own country and that every other country, that is a member of the European Union, has to give you all the needed care.If you haven't obtained your card from your health care insurance, than :

    • apply for a card immediately;
    • if you cannot receive it in time, ask them to e-mail to you a "Provisional replacement certificate for the European Health Insurance Card" (= 1 page, and this can be done immediately);

    A list of "Dangerous sports" that are excluded from "urgent medical care abroad". Usually, "racing with car / motorcycle / outboard engines" is listed. But as we do not "race", our activity is not excluded from any treatment. Check if this is also the case with your insurance, and if it is not, just be sure to get an insurance yourself.

    EYBIS has not only a very good insurance as an organiser, but insures also - on every event - all participants with a good TPL (= third partie liability) insurance.

    If you have a racing license from your national motorcycle council, be sure to bring it with you.

    • With EYBIS, the Third Party Liability (TPL) insurance is included in your enrolment price since years;
    • Some circuits require a license. The only reason for this is that there is a TPL insurance included in it;
    • Because we provide for all participants - included in the price - such a TPL insurance, a license is not requested during our events and yet you are fully okay;
