Circuito Estoril, Estoril, Portugal

The Circuito Estoril has previously been on the WorldSBK calendar twice: firstly in 1988 and then again in 1993. The circuit is vast but technical, and features one of the longest straights on the calendar at just under 1km. Two noticeable hairpins and long parabolicas, the circuit lends itself to close racing and has a variety of overtaking hotspots. Situated just over 30km from the Portuguese capital city of Lisbon, the track is a stone’s throw from the coastal city of Estoril, making it a tourist hotspot too. From the four races run, four different riders have won, and that streak is guaranteed to be extended in 2020.

Why we love Portugal and Estoril

Estoril and its spectacular coastline are a must-see destination for any visitor to Portugal. Flanked on two sides by the Atlantic Ocean, the region is located just 25 km from Lisbon and its international airport, stretching west in a rectangle from Carcavelos to Guincho Beach. Nearby stands the imposing Cabo da Roca, mainland Europe’s most westerly point.

With its mild year-round climate, the Portuguese Riviera (as the region is known) offers a surprising variety of landscapes and attractions, combining a wide range of possibilities in one very unique destination. From pure leisure to business, golf, sun, sea and water sports, it simply has it all and offers a new definition of the concepts of eco- and activity-based tourism.
