Algarve International Circuit will host a Formula 1 race for the first time with the running of the 2020 Portuguese Grand Prix at the venue as part of the sport’s heftily revised calendar for the first time since 1996 when it was held in Estoril.
We dug up a sweet virtual version of the Algarve circuit (aka Portimao) by sim-track guru Tiago Lima who scratch-built it from Nuno Ferraz’s original work. GT3 teams are known to use this track for familiarisation purposes and driver training.

A personal message from Tiago: “Since I was out of track and conversions for a year, with Portimao 2.0 I decided to improve the quality in everything and try to make a track that people can enjoy, and not just one more track. I hope you guys like it and enjoy it.
“Thanks to Nuno Ferraz for His permission:) and Special Thanks to all the friends that helped with testing, all the ideas from people around the forums and Norbs for the cameras.”
