This year there will be an officially branded Indian (and a Victory) road with an 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.”
