If the situation does improve I'm sure they can hold a nice BCDs event at Portimao.
Portimao's held several events with limited crowds in the last 6 months. No reason to expect WEC will be any different.

The situation in Europe is dramatically different to how it was 6 months ago, unfortunately.

If it goes ahead then great. But I would not be surprised for a wider European lockdown.

Portugal is a mix of a North African country with European flavours and South American vibe. It matches well in a poorly international WEC calendar. A fly in the ointment.

I know, I'm Portuguese.

So I suppose you would consider Spain a North African country as they are geographically closer to N. Africa than Portugal. Italy? (also geographically closer (Sicily)).

As for the South American Vibe: Portugal founded Brazil, the largest country in South America ,so I suppose it would be more correct to say that Brazil has a Portuguese vibe (Language, Architecture, cultural similarities, some food origins, etc)

Just using Juntos logic.
Don't worry - I know the difference between the Iberian Peninsula/culture and North Africa.

And all the world knows how Portugal 'founded' Brazil even if the word conquistador is spanish.
I guess Portugal founded as well Cap Verde, Angola, Mozambique....I just wonder what the heck the people living there did before they've been 'founded' by Portugal

They lived there but the place was not called Brazil, Cabo Verde, Angola and Mozambique, nor did it have the geographical contours that it has today. So what?
