The Grand Tour 2015 Visits Porto

The Grand Tour is a motoring event that is neither a race nor a rally. The meeting sees its participants drive some of the most breathtaking roads in Europe while deciphering cryptic clues in an attempt to win points. The team with the most points at the end of the five day journey wins the year’s Grand Tour.

Now in its 26th year, this time the Grand Tour passed through Porto on its way from León, in the north of Spain, and onwards to Sagres, in the south of Portugal.

On the first stop of the trip that will see the drivers travel the length of the Iberian Peninsula, the Grand Tour set up camp in the 18th century Palácio do Freixo where they were greeted by a tasting of several of Graham’s Ports. What better way to unwind after a hard day on the road!
