The Autodromo do Estoril (Officially, Autodromo Fernanda Pires da Silva) is a permanent track in Portugal. After opening in 1972, the track hosted a large amount of events, mainly national events as well as Formula 2. After several years, the course soon fell into disrepair due to the company who owned the circuit being taken over, and a significant redevelopment effort was needed before international motorsport returned in 1984. This was when Formula 1 came to the circuit, where it stayed for more than 10 years, and held many memorable races, including incidents with Mansell, Schumacher and Berger. The biggest event of the year these days is the Moto GP, huge crowds turn out year upon year.
