24 Hours of Le Mans - ...
Most of the tests are in Portugal and Spain but there are several possibilities to go to other countries.
Clients can also bring their own crew (mechanics, engineers etc.) to run one of our cars. This could be a great opportunity for teams that don't want to bring over all their equipment and organise a private test for themselves.

Testing Portimao P2 Testing
Private test-sessions at top racing facilities where all sorts of racing drivers can enjoy big amounts of tracktime while maximising on track performance together with their coach and engineer. Portimao is pretty much the home base of the team but also tracks like Estoril, Monteblanco, Jerez, Guadix and Valencia are visited on a regular basis. All season long this is a great way to test in the more sunny side of Europe but especially in wintertime is has even bigger benefits.
Getting the most out of the available tracktime is really important for Algarve Pro Racing Team. The team will always have a limited amount of cars on track at the same time reducing the risk of red flags and too much traffic for the faster cars. Obviously everything can be discussed and also public testdays can be attended if wanted by the customers.
The team is well equipped and has an experience team of Mechanics and engineers. We are a big believer of on track coaching by professional racing drivers. The coaches can provide worthfull information for both novice and more experienced drivers. Setting benchmark laptimes and data reference laps to then go through the data together with the customers to optimize their performance.
Algarve Pro Racing Team has several racing cars in it's possesion. Most recently the Ligier JS LMP2 has been added to the collection and is ready to go testing. The team has a World Series 3.5 and it's little brother the Formula Renault 2.0. The 2.0 is the ultimate training tool due to the low runningcosts. We have several Formula Renault's available and ready to test. Sometimes the customers actually do race simulations with their coaches to improve their race craft instead of only focussing on qualifying performance.
“I have been doing quite a bit of testing with the World Series 3.5 car. My coach Adam Carroll is helping me to fine tune my racing skills in order to be in top form for my current racing series. Every now and then I jump in the Formula Renault 2.0 to help some of the more novice drivers get up to speed. I really like the amount of tracktime I get during the testdays with APR, we are making some serious kilometers per day!”
“Working with Stewart and the Algarve Pro Racing Team has really enabled me to get some good mileage in the LMPC before heading out in an LMP2 at the Le Mans test day. I like the cost-effective way of working and Nicky has really helped me develop as a driver. I am looking forward to the next test.”
“I started racing in 2012 and before I knew it, I was racing in a Lamborghini Gallardo GT3 already. The Gallardo is a serious racing car and it took me a while to get up to speed with it. My coach Nicky Catsburg adviced me to drive APR's Formula Renault 2.0 to get used to higher cornering speeds and basicly get some more kilometers on a racing track. I really love the Formula Renault 2.0 and I am getting quicker and quicker. You really feel at one with this little car and it has tought me some serious race craft. It is always a pleasure to test with Stewart, Sam and the crew.”
