Guess Diogo Ferrao is who youíre thinking of. He organises this event now and runs the Iberian Historic Endurance series, so obviously Iíll be talking to him as well.

You never know, there may be a tenther down there with a villa and plenty of space.....

Yes, that's the fella!

It's almost amusing about the villa. One of my biggest regrets is that I was seriously contemplating a huge 10 bedroom villa not that far from Portimao that was situated on an excellent golf course. It had been repossessed by the lenders after the owner, who I was led to believe was a rather shady character with an unhealthy penchant for gambling, and the property was going oh so cheap. An added bonus for me was that it also had it's own private runway, so I could have popped down there whenever the fancy took me. And the attached hanger - each house had one - would have been more than big enough to accommodate your artic!

Mind you, back then in the late 70s and 80s, we went away every summer with friends and all our children, and every year my friend Alan and I would go through the ritual of looking at properties overseas. We nearly bought in Cyprus, Corfu and the Algarve, just to name a few.

But I was a fool not to have bought that villa on the golf course, although the thought that his creditors (and I am not talking about the bank, here) might be making further calls on the house seeking their money, didn't exactly fill my heart with joy. Especially after we found a number of bullet holes in the external structure!

I'm looking for contact details for (I think) 'Algarve Racing Services', who have a race shop at the AIA and are run by a Brit. A brief search brings up nothing, but no doubt there are many on here cleverer than me.....

Mike, there's a Facebook page under that name created in 2010 but no posts on it so probably not in use. You could try messaging them through that but a long shot.

A search on Twitter showed a post by someone called Phil Egginton who appears to be based in Portugal referring to a Steve Worrad of Algarve Racing Services. But again that appears to be in 2010 - as follows:

Steve Worrad of Algarve Racing Services driving the Rodrive Ginetta G50 during the first Open GT race at AIA 13th... http://fb.me/AZb8iSK

That link doesn't appear to work.

Maybe a couple of names in there to work with but perhaps a bit dated?

Thanks guys, youíve come up with exactly same as me! I know Phil Egginton as he is an ex Morgan racer and has been at the meeting in some previous years. Probably best to try and contact him.....

Not sure but you can try info@raceready.pt. This series runs for all types of historic cars but not sure they are all FIA.
