Los Loros (Arafo) Hillclimb

The XVI Subida Los Loros (16th Los Loros Hillclimb) takes place this weekend with the main events on Saturday, 4 December 2021 in the municipality of Arafo, an event that returns to the calendar after the 2020 parenthesis. 

There are 55 drivers in Speed, highlighting the return of Félix Brito with the Ford Fiesta R5 and the reappearance of Víctor Martín with a spectacular Leon TCR Cupra. In Regular Sport, 11 teams will compete and 14 in Fórmuula Rallye.

"For our municipality it is the most important event," said Jonathan Gutiérrez, Councilor for Sports. "It is an honor to host an event of these characteristics," he stressed, thanking the ProGT Arafo Club for promoting the area's identity. The Los Loros Hillclimb coincides "with the most beautiful ascent towards Mount Teide" he added. 

La Palma, no child without toys

As has been tradition, the ProGT Arafo Club is taking advantage of the celebration of the Los Loros Hillclimb for charitable purposes. This year, on the occasion of the eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano, on the island of La Palma, and in collaboration with Obra Social "la Caixa" as partner in this adventure, and with Naviera Armas as logistics operator, there will be a collection of toys that will go to the Isla Bonita. This event will take place on December 3 during the verifications and on the 4th during the event.
