Rampa dos Barreiros, Funchal
May 24 @ 9:00 pm

Rampa dos Barreiros – time trial for classic cars. This year the Rampa will be held in the evening of the 24th, so even more exciting!

The “Rampa dos Barreiros” was the first speed race held in Madeira in 1935 and was won by Ribeiro Ferreira at the wheel of a fabulous Bugatti.
The object of the race is for the cars to make three separate circuits of a short course in exactly the same time. The car that manages the closest time to their original run wins the competition.
There will be 60 classic cars competing along the route very similar to the original route in 1935. The cars will all start from Avenida Sa Carneiro and finish at the gate of Quinta Magnolia. One of the best places to view the cars will be at the bridge of Ribeiro Seco. Every car in the race will arrive at 30 second intervals – and in between you will be entertained by the exhibitions’ very own “special policeman” on duty at Ponte do Ribeiro Seco.
