Thank you to Martim for sending me the information below.
Madeira Classic Car Revival (Classic Car exhibition) will be held on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th of May 2019
The event starts on the 24th with Rampa dos Barreiros. A hill climb (time trial) race for around 80 classic cars which will start at 21h00 at Avenida do Mar. This year the race will be held on Friday night instead of Sunday morning due to the European Elections on Sunday which make it impossible to have roads closed for the event during that day.
The race covers the streets of Avenida do Mar, Avenida Sá Carneiro, Rua Carvalho Araújo, Largo da Paz with the finish line at Rua Dr. Pita next to Quinta Magnólia. The corner near the music conservatory where the bridge of Ribeiro Seco is placed is a very popular area for spectators.
Each car makes 3 runs and the goal is to make equal times on those 3 runs. e.g … if you record 1 minute exactly on the first run, you must get as close as you can to that time on the next 2 runs. The winner is the team that completes the course closest to their original time.
