In 1973, the Rally de Portugal was one of the founding events of the World Rally Championship and it has lost nothing over the years. As well as the large and passionate crowds, which always line the roads, drivers will have to contend with soft sandy tracks which make grip hard to come by, especially on the first running of stages.

As the event goes on, the sandy dirt surfaces clear to present new hazards in the shape of rocks, pot-holes and ruts. Such variations mean tyre choice can be decisive as well as requiring constant vigilance and concentration from both driver and co-driver. It is a big challenge and one which makes for a fascinating WRC event.
