The 2014 edition of “Madeira Wine Rally”, is hosted in the spectacular landscapes of the island of Madeira in the beginning of August.
The European Rally Championship is the oldest international competition organised by organised by FIA (the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile), and includes 10 events in 10 European countries.
The Madeira Wine rally is one of the most important events in the championship and is the region’s biggest automobile event. The big names of world racing bring their racing cars to this great sports event that features many dozens of participants. The Madeiran race begins on Friday with the dispute of the "shakedown" at Avenida do Mar e das Comunidades Madeirenses, while on Saturday and Sunday, the competitors will travel the island enthusing the thousands of spectators that populate the mountains of Madeira looking for the best spot to observe the speed and skill of the drivers.
The rally is named after one of the main products in Madeira, the liqueur wine that was already highly popular in European courts in the 18th century due to its unique aroma and flavour.
