Created in 2012, this classic series with Group1 Pre-1981 specifications, was born from the teams needs to compete in a championship where there was a controlled participation costs, like the English spirit of the "Club Racing". This competition is always disputed by class, rewording the teams and drivers big effort who runs in each classes, fighting their own championship inside the championship.

Like it was on the past, this races are getting extremely  interesting. Remember the GR1 national championships of 1979, 1980 and 1981, not mentioning the famous english BTCC, also disputed with this kind of cars.

Nowadays, like in Portugal, England and France, Group1 races have been very well disputed and competitive and the grids growing every day. 

Besides this, the cars value is increasing, with a lot more interested people in Europe, in participate on this competitions, making this a secure investment.

 

ABOUT

The championship is based on the Turismo series regulations (Gr.1), extremely well suceeded specialy between 1970 and 1981. Today, like it was in the past, the big difficulty was to find homologated and originals parts for some models. Because of that, the tecnical regulation allows to work around this difficulty without raising costs.

To decrease the costs, the regulation was planned so that it was possible that cars with prices between 3.000€ and 30.000€ could participate. For more informations about the cars allowed, associated costs and how you can start racing with us, please find the contacts below the page.

The annual participation costs are about 10.000€ per team - 5.000€ per driver, when it's divided between two drivers.

We only have 5 events in Portugal per year, to minimize the costs and so that the teams are able to dispute the entire championship. Each Sprint event has two races of 25 minutes, like Braga Festival of Speed and Estoril GT Open. Then we have the endurance events like Vila Real and Algarve Classic festival, with two races of 40 minutes, and the 250km Estoril event with one race of 120 minutes.

 Group1 Portugal is divided by the following categories:

The sports regulation is very simple, based on a mix of sprint and endurance races. The tchnical regulation is based on the portuguese Group1 regulation, but with some changes due to the dificulty to find original and homologated parts, with the goal of decreasing costs.

The admited tires are "low-cost", Toyo R888, with prices inferior to 100€ and that in several cases, lasts an intire season.

Group1 Portugal recomends the consultation of the regulation links below, however in case of changes you can always find the regulations available at FPAK.
