Long-lasting partnerships in the “big event”

At today’s press conference, José Paulo Fontes, president of the Organizing Committee of RVM, congratulated himself for the public and private sponsors, that have been supporting this event for many years, as it is the case of the Regional Government of Madeira, City Halls, Empresa de Cervejas da Madeira (ECM), BPI bank, Empresa Madeirense de Tabacos, PT, C. Santos VP among others. “Sponsors believe in this great event and therefore it is essential to renovate these partnerships” sustained Fontes.

He stressed how important it is to guarantee payback, which has happened in previous years and therefore he challenged these partners “to confirm for next year’s edition” as the Rali Vinho da Madeira will be commemorating its 60th anniversary in association with the celebration of the 600th anniversary of Madeira Discovery. “We wish to commemorate these historical moments with dignity” he pointed out, promising “some surprises” for next year.  “We are already focusing on the next edition of the rally”, he admitted.

Nuno Freitas from ECM wished good luck for this year’s edition and congratulated “the sponsors that have been loyal to this event”.

David Gomes, Director of the Juvenile and Sports Board underlined the importance of this event considered the “most emblematic” sports event in the Region, hoping that this year’s edition will maintain the quality standard to which we are already accustomed to.

Dorita Mendonça, Tourism Board Director admitted being excited “for another rally”, a race that mobilizes both locals and visitors, having stressed that RVM helps to promote Madeira Island abroad as it “shows the island and its magnificent scenery while cars compete”.
