    • Closing roads around the old town by 10pm and stopping buses and taxi from operating in the central zone at this time hisn’t helping bars or restaurants rebuild trade after the pandemic or helping tourists get home to hotels or holiday hones after an evening out!!!

      Rally madness!

  1. I walked into Funchal & traffic was stationary from the Lido down to Funchal a lot of people not happy… the Rally Cars in Funchal were just revving engines to see who could make the most noise with what seemed to be a day out for a few “midlife crisis” macho men causing immense disruption…?
