Discover the History of Faro Motard Concentration
The 1st Faro Motard Concentration took place in 1982, organized by the Moto Clube of Faro, and right from the start, it had an international impact to the extent that out of hundreds of people present, only 4 were Portuguese.
Due to the international success of the first edition, the Moto Clube de Faro continued to host the event year after year, with each edition attracting more people than the previous one.
The Faro Motard Concentration has undergone such significant evolution over the years that it started to gain attention from both national and international media as one of the “largest and best Motard Concentrations in Europe.” In 1991, it became the only event in Portugal to be included in the International Calendar of Concentrations by the International Motorcycling Federation (FIM).
This achievement is credited to the vision of the Moto Clube de Faro, which managed to turn this into one of the biggest celebrations of motorcycle culture in Europe. We strongly recommend visiting, even if you’re not a biker, as it’s undoubtedly a historic event where you’ll have a lot of fun and create great memories.
