This weekend the 2011 FIA GT1 World Championship travels to the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve for the second time. The 4.7km circuit has become a firm favorite with the teams and drivers due to the exciting nature of the track that allows plenty of overtaking opportunities.

In 2010 victory in the Championship Race went to eventual World Champions Michael Bartels and Andrea Bertolini, while the honours in the earlier Qualifying Race went to the Nissan GTR and Michael Krumm and Peter Dumbreck. However the drive of the weekend went to Richard Westbrook, who stormed though the field in the Ford GT to secure a 5th and 2nd place alongside teammate Thomas Mutsch. This year Dumbreck is joined by Westbrook at JR Motorsport, while Krumm is partnered by fellow German Lucas Luhr in the second JRM Nissan.
