The Porto City Council will assume, for the first time, the responsibility of co-organizing a stage of the Rally do Portugal that will certainly bring tens of thousands of people to the historic area of ​​the city of Porto and reach so many others through live streaming RTP and 160 other television stations. This “street stage” was the great novelty presented by Automóvel Clube de Portugal (ACP), at Exponor, last Thursday, April 7, and promises to be one of the reasons for attracting the modality World Championship.

It is known that the race, which this year is scheduled for May 19, 20, 21 and 22, although the complete route has not yet been released, will have a total length of 1.850 meters along Avenida dos Aliados and adjacent streets and that it is also foreseen to include paid bench seats and several pedestrian zones that allow watching the competition without associated costs.

Carlos Barbosa, president of Automóvel Clube do Portugal, stressed, during the presentation, despite the competition being considered one of the most popular in the world, that “Turismo de Portugal withdrew its support for the rally precisely in the year it came to the North”, but that this initiative became possible because the municipalities and entities in the North came together and accepted the challenge of implementing it.
