The Autódromo Internacional do Algarve (AIA) race track opened its doors on 2nd November 2008 after just seven months of construction. It was a true race against time to host the circuit’s inaugural race – the final round of the Superbike World Championship.
The race track was developed as part of an innovative global project, which concentrates all aspects of the complex in the same physical space: race track, go-kart track, off-road park, hotel, apartment complex (Vista do Falcão Residences), technology park and sports complex. Thanks to the AIA, Portugal is now known nearly all over the world and for all the right reasons.
The circuit has received the highest praise from top drivers around the world and the main governing bodies of motorsports due to the technicalities of its design.
The natural relief of the terrain was ideal for creating a unique circuit with many uphill and downhill sections that make driving a pleasure, since the corners and straights follow each other in quick succession with steep elevation changes. These design characteristics provide spectators with impressive and far-reaching views of the track from any grandstand.

Besides sporting events, the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve hosts a range of other events throughout the year, namely:
AIA Summer Party
The Autódromo Internacional do Algarve, as a multi-purpose space with a constant focus on innovation and the creation of a diverse range of activities, launched its first ever “AIA Summer Party” last year with the aim of attracting big names to the Algarve, strengthening the summer season and boosting tourism in the region.
The special highlight of the “AIA Summer Party” held on 11th August 2013 was a concert by award-winning band KEANE, a popular English rock band that attracts fans to their concerts in their thousands. The event was kicked off by Portuguese rock band BLIND ZERO, which was formed in 1994 in Porto.
This event seeks to be a milestone in the Algarve summer, linking a series of fun activities and unique experiences, sponsored by CONTINENTE as the main partner.
