Estoril hosts the SevenFriday Classic Cup in July



With the absence of races for classic cars over the next four months, Race Ready has decided to organise a unique event that promises to challenge drivers and teams in an innovative way - the SevenFriday Classic Cup.


On 13 and 14 July, the Circuito do Estoril will host a special race in partnership with SevenFriday, a lifestyle brand known for challenging norms based on individual beliefs, dreams and experiences.


The SevenFriday Classic Cup will be open to all cars homologated or produced between 1960 and 1999. Lasting 60 minutes, a set of rules particular to this race will ensure that all drivers and machines can compete fairly, taking into account various factors.


To balance out the competition, the race organisers have implemented a handicap system to be applied during the compulsory pit stop. This system, based on the age and homologation of each vehicle, can introduce up to 4 minutes of difference in this stop.


Teams that include a first-time circuit racer will receive an additional 60 seconds of handicapping, which is a perfect opportunity for those who have always dreamed of competing at speed. Rookie drivers will receive additional training during the weekend, ensuring proper preparation for the race.



Likewise, drivers who prefer to race on slick tyres will be able to do so in a Race Ready race. However, drivers opting for road-legal tyres will have a 30-second advantage in pit stops.


There will also be a handicapping system based on the age, type and cylinder capacity of the cars, with the oldest and smallest vehicles benefiting.


SevenFriday, the brand of unique watches inspired by the modern world, represented in Portugal by Importempo, will be the official sponsor of the event, providing unique and obligatory visibility. The winner of the race will take home an exclusive SevenFriday watch.




For Diogo Ferrão (CEO of Race Ready), this will be "an excellent event for all classic racing enthusiasts and an opportunity for anyone who wants to race before the long summer break. The handicap system will create a balance between drivers and machines. All participants will be able to test on Friday, a crucial day for anyone looking for a new car or a new teammate."


Five thousand spectators are expected at the Circuito Estoril over the three-day event, which will feature a race as part of the Iberian Supercars program. The event will be broadcast live to audiences worldwide.
