The “Supercars in Jarama” program, on the weekend of the 14th and 15th of this month, which marks the beginning of the Portuguese Speed Championship/Iberian Supercars Endurance by Hankook – with two 45-minute races on each day, which promises an exciting set of races, with two Classics competitions (“Carrera los 80’s” and Group 1 Portugal) and the single-make trophy with the Caterhams of the Super 7 by Toyo Tires.
The entertainment will not only happen on the track, as the Paddock will also be an attraction for the public, as in addition to having several merchandising stores, you will have the possibility to live experiences of Slide and Karting. Finally, the 1st edition of the Supercar Festival takes place, a great concentration of road super sports cars, which will also have the possibility of doing some high speed laps in the
track in safe conditions.
The most emblematic and central track, geographically, in the neighboring country, has enormous traditions in motor sports. In the 1960s, Portuguese pilots such as Carlos Gaspar and Carlos Santos, among others, had their glory days there. Later, they were supported by Pedro Matos Chaves and Ni Amorim and the circuit now returns to the great moments, in a program that evokes the past and, at the same time, shows the present. If the Portuguese Speed Championship/Iberian Supercars Endurance
by Hankook appears as the headliner, when putting on the track the always spectacular GT and SuperTurismo cars of the latest generation, such as McLarens 570S, Audi R8 or Hyundai Elantra N TCR or CUPRA TCR, there are still three more competitions that promise not to go unnoticed by spectators.
The so-called “Carrera los 80’s” is a continuation of the Historic Endurance, but now aimed at cars from the 80’s and early 90’s, providing gentleman drivers with a good argument to remove their relics from the garage, such as the Volvo 240 Turbo, a BMW M3 Group A or the always efficient Porsche 911 or 968.
The Group 1 races, together with the Mini Trophy, will also be captivating, as they recreate the competitions of the 70s that provided lively battles carried out by the drivers of the Datsun 1200, Golf GTi, Ford Escort or, of course, the mini.
The Caterhams of the Super 7 by Toyo Tires will be another of the attractions of the weekend on the circuit outside Madrid, as no less than 40 cars will be on the track, divided into two models, discussing every meter of asphalt…
However, the animation will also pass through the Paddock, as the event organizers decided to promote the “Supercars Festival”, a concentration of super sports cars open to clubs or owners of this type of vehicle. And those who pre-register on the web supercarfestival.org can park their car in the Paddock in a privileged location and still take a few laps around the track. It is only possible to purchase tickets for Sunday (15th), which can be done on the website supercarfestival.org or at https://www.jarama.org/
