The 1000 Kilometres of Algarve was an endurance race for sports cars, held at Autódromo Internacional do Algarve in Portugal in 2009 and 2010.


The 1000 Kilometres of Algarve was run for the first time in 2009, and was the third round of the Le Mans Series. The race was won by Pescarolo Sport, whilst Quifel ASM Team won the LMP2 category, Alphand Aventures won the GT1 category, and JMW Motorsport won the GT2 category. The race was held again in 2010, and again was the third round of the Le Mans Series. This time, Team Oreca Matmut took the overall victory, whilst RML won the LMP2 category, DAMS won the Formula Le Mans category, AF Corse won the GT2 category, and Larbre Competition won the GT1 category. For 2011, the Portuguese round of the Le Mans Series used the Autódromo do Estoril instead, and the 1000 km of Algarve hasn't been run since.
