What better stage for the outcome of the Cross-Country Portugal Championship? The Baja Portalegre 500 will be a special moment for the new national champions João Ferreira (absolute), João Franco (T2), João Dias (T3), João Paula (T4) and Nuno Tordo (T8), although there are still titles to be awarded.

Tradition is still what it was. Portalegre closes the Portuguese Championship accounts, at the end of a memorable season for young João Ferreira and navigator David Monteiro, who became absolute national champions by winning five of the six races disputed so far. The MINI duo was only beaten by Tiago Reis and Valter Cardoso (Toyota) at Baja de Loulé, and can now face Baja Portalegre 500 as another (huge) apprenticeship among the international elite.

Very consistent, João Dias is now second in the CPTT, followed by Tiago Reis and João Ramos, three drivers who will fight for the vice-championship in Portalegre. The Toyota Caetano Racing driver also leads the Veterans classification, where he will fight for the title with Alejandro Martins.

In the T2 category, João Franco and Pedro Inácio already guaranteed the title, while the duo João Dias / João Miranda dominated the T3 category so far, winning the six races already held. In category T4, João Paula is already champion because Filipe Barreiros, second in the championship, is not entered in the ACP race, which will decide the navigators' title - Nuno Mota Ribeiro has eight points ahead of Fausto Mota. In the T8 category, on the other hand, Nuno Tordo has already added one more title to his portfolio and will be able to enjoy the 'party' in Portalegre.
