The Algarve Classic Festival proved to be quite the fruitful getaway for James and the team at DK winning two events overall over the weekend. The festival itself marked both the end for most of the motorsports season, but also the final round of DK-sponsored Pre-63GT Championship.
Portimao Circuit is located in the very southwest of Portugal. Opened in 2008, the track is just under 5km. This past weekend it offered up some lovely autumnal sun for those escaping the UK. The grids however brought with them drivers and cars emanating from much further afield.
With a multitude of races over the weekend and cars spanning four decades, competition was fierce. The two hour dusk race combining the Stirling Moss & Woodcote Trophy on Saturday even resulted in a 1st overall for the Tojeiro-Jaguar of Max Girardo and James. David and longstanding friend of DK, Scott Redding, placed 12th overall but 2nd in class in the AC.
In the 60 minute Pre-63 GT race, James & Max Girardo once more placed first overall, this time in the DK run Jaguar E-Type. After 7 years of trying an many podiums along the way, the E-Type has finally taken gold!
