4x4 competition - King of Portugal 2015

Let the show begin! 

Adapted to the reality of European competitions, King of Portugal takes place in Vimioso (Portugal), from the 11th to the 13th of September 2015. The course is on a natural terrain, with an extension of 35 km. The competition is divided into two categories, prepared and prototypes.

For this 2015 edition, there will be events for bikes and Legend, Unlimited Modified and Stock cars.

In addition, 70% of the 2015 course has been modified to be even more competitive. The new organization has also created a special night stage on Friday.

Update

The third edition of King of Portugal was a great success with over 40 teams taking part from locally and all over Europe.

The event was divided into four categories:

  • Stoc (series)
  • Modified
  • Legend
  • Unlimited

Euro4x4partswas there, we particularly enjoyed the section where competitors had to overcome 9 truck tyres, a difficult obstacle that offered the spectators a great show! 

This edition of the King of Portugal was particularly harsh, confirming that it is one of the most difficult events on the European calendar.

Congratulations to our team F-Racing, who are leading the 2015 championship!
