• Indian Motorcycle is the main sponsor – chance to win an Indian Scout Sixty

Indian Motorcycle is proud to announce its sponsorship of the four-day-long Faro Motorcycle Rally in sunny Portugal this July.

Now in its 35th year, the Faro Motorcycle Rally (called Faro 35) is the biggest biker gathering in Southern Europe and draws in around 20,000 bikers from 2pm on the Thursday right through to Sunday night.

The rally is held in a beautiful location near the beach and one of the most exclusive areas in the Algarve (Quinta do Lago).

Its appeal is simple; hot and sunny weather, sparkling sea, great roads and plenty of live music and entertainment.

Highlights 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

This year there will be an officially branded Indian (and a Victory) road with a exclusive motorcycle parking area for owners as well as a hospitality area serving cold drinks. Visitors will also be able to look at the MY16 models in a special display area.

The Moto Clube Faro (organisers of the show) run a raffle over the weekend and the main prize is an Indian Scout Sixty (to win the bike you have to be present when they announce the winner).

Indian Motorcycle’s marketing specialist for Spain, Miriam Torrens, explains why Faro 35 is such a great event for bikers from all over Europe: “The atmosphere at Faro is the perfect mix of hospitality, good music, terrific weather and incredible views for riders passing through the Algarve region in the South of Portugal.”

“The rally takes place a few kilometres from the sea where you can enjoy the best seafood in the region. These are the things that have drawn thousands of bikers over the years, mainly from Portugal, Spain and the UK, but also from the Netherlands, France and Germany.”

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

The entry price is 45 Euros for all four days and includes camping, coupons for free meals. Attendees get an official goody bag containing a T-shirt, rally badge and stickers plus draw tickets to win the Indian Scout Sixty and a week in Daytona.

Entry is also available from 2pm onwards on the Saturday for 30 Euros, but this does not include the meal coupons or the draw tickets.
