  • Faro Rally run from Thursday 19th July to Sunday 20th July in Portugal 
  • Party restricted to IMRG members or Indian Motorcycle owners 
  • Chance to win a Scout Sixty and a trip to Daytona Bike Week in a prize draw

Indian Motorcycle has been attending the Faro rally for a number of years now and it has everything you want from a biking festival, but this year the brand promises to throw its biggest party to date.

From the Thursday to the Sunday (19th to 22nd July), over 20,000 bikers attend the rally, drawn there by the hot weather, the sea, winding coastal roads and plenty of live music and craziness.

Indian will have an ‘Only Indian parking’ spot for guests and the party will be held on the Indian stand on the Saturday evening with restricted access. Only IMRG members showing their cards (or owners showing their motorcycle key fob) will be granted access. Inside there’ll be a DJ, a bartender, a free cocktail on arrival and then free snacks and beers for the rest of the evening. IMRG members will also be given a welcome kit full of Indian related goodies inside. On top of that, everyone will be entered in to a raffle to win a Scout Sixty or a trip to Daytona Bike Week in 2019.

Indian Motorcycle marketing specialist for Spain, Miriam Torrens, says that Indian owners from all over Europe and beyond are encouraged to attend. “We’d like as many Indian owners to ride down and join us,” she says. “The rally has a perfect mix of hospitality, great music, terrific weather and incredible views on rides around the Algarve region. We promise to give you a fantastic party atmosphere!”

Further highlights at Faro include:

24-hour bars – Live concerts each night – Erotic shows each night – Wet T-shirt contest – Bike Show – Trade stands – Biker Fair – Tattoo stands – Tattoo contest – Camping

The rally is hosted on recreational grounds just north of Faro airport (co-ordinates 37 01’28.00”N, 7 58’38.00”W).

The entry price is 45€ for all four days and includes an official goody bag containing a T-shirt, rally badge and sticker plus coupons for free meals as well as two tickets to enter draws to win a Scout Sixty and a trip to Daytona Bike Week.
