Carrera Los 80: A High-Speed Fiesta Across Iberia in 2024

The Carrera Los 80, the truly Iberian racing series that aims to put on track some of the most outstanding 1980s Touring Car cars and GT cars from 1976 to 1993, will maintain the same format and the same number of races in 2024.

The semi-endurance format implemented in 2023 was a winning bet, with each event consisting of two 40-minute races, including a compulsory pit stop, allowing teams to be composed of one or two drivers.

As it is not a championship and there is no classification at the end of the year, Carrera Los 80 is a competition in which the participating drivers do so with the intention of enjoying driving their racing cars in a competitive environment, but above all, with camaraderie and sportsmanship. For fans and the general public, Carrera Los 80 offers the chance to see on track some of the machines that wrote the history of motor racing leading up to the turn of the century, from both one-make cup and national championships.

The 2024 season calendar will consist of four races at four of the most charismatic circuits on the Iberian Peninsula - two in Spain and two in Portugal. The season kicks off with the Exclusive Test Day at the Autódromo do Estoril on April 5 and 6, where teams can choose one of the days to fine-tune and test their cars before the season begins.

After the test day scheduled for April 5th and 6th at the Autódromo do Estoril, the season will officially kick off on the last weekend of May at the historic Circuito de Jerez, continuing in Spain on June 15 and 16 at the Jarama Classic, one of the most eagerly awaited events of the year at the circuit on the outskirts of Madrid.

The series continues in the second half of the year in Portugal, with a presence at the Algarve Classic Festival on October 26 and 27, concluding at the Endurance Racing Festival weekend on November 30/December 1.

For Diogo Ferrão (CEO of Race Ready): "In 2023, we wanted to energize the Carrera Los 80 concept. We've managed to bring together some of the most attractive Touring and GT cars from the 1980s and early 1990s on the Iberian Peninsula, but we know there's still a lot of work to be done to get the grids fuller. However, we're confident that this will be possible in 2024 because, as we've seen in other Race Ready competitions, it always takes time for a good idea to reach its full potential. In 2023, 42 different cars took part in the four races we ran. In 2024, the aim will be to get all the cars that took part in 2023 on the same starting grid!"
