The 100,000-capacity Algarve International Race Track, commonly referred to as the Portimão Circuit, is a 4.692 km race circuit located in Portimão, Algarve, Portugal. With a total cost of €195 million, the project comprises a karting track, technology park, five-star hotel, sports complex and apartments.

Inaugurated in October 2008, the track is approved to host the highest categories of motorsport (F1 and MotoGP) and is a top choice for the best-known global brands to carry out tests and presentations of new models/products.

The Algarve International Race Track has already won several European and World awards for the best race track and infrastructures, and most recently hosted the Formula 1 Heineken Portuguese Grand Prix 2020, in October 2020, and the MotoGP Grande Prix de Portugal, in November 2020.

Within the scope of this exciting collaboration, Nobel International School joined MDriving, a company specialised in defensive and sports driving courses, based at the Algarve International Race Track, and created a partnership that allows all parents, friends and students from 12 upwards to learn or evolve their driving skills.

To this end, three different experiences were purposely created: a driving initiation course for those close to starting driving lessons, a sports and defensive driving course for those who already drive, and a karting championship for parents and students.
