Torque - A bar for the Car Community

(English)
My name is André and this is Wilson. Born and raised in the small cozy city of Viseu, since we were little, we always had the taste for cars and motorcycles. Our city, despite having no automobile industry, has always had several events related to the sector that involved the auto fan community. Unfortunately, this city has also gained fame for illegal races, sometimes marked by violence and drug abuse. On August 13, 2018, a special operation of the GNR (local police) resulted in the arrest of 2 people and identified 71 other, seizing 19 vehicles, and putting an end to the only space of conviviality for the community of enthusiasts of the automotive world.

 

After the end of what was popularly called a "troço" (strech of road in portuguese), the idea came to create a space for these people to gather. At the moment there is a space for sale next to the School of Management and Technology of Viseu, that we think is ideal for the realization of our dream that is to open a bar called "Torque", whose theme revolves around the automotive world, with no space similar existing in Viseu.

 

As two students about to finish our course in Informatics, realizing this project would not only be a dream come true, but also a way to contribute to this community that has always welcomed us.

O meu nome é André e este é o Wilson. Nascidos e criados na pequena cidade acolhedora de Viseu, desde pequenos sempre tivemos o gosto pelos carros e motas. A nossa cidade apesar de não ter indústria automóvel, sempre teve vários eventos relacionados com o setor que envolveram a comunidade de fãs de automóveis. Infelizmente esta cidade também tem vindo a ganhar fama pelas corridas ilegais, por vezes marcadas por violência e abuso de drogas. Em 13 de Agosto de 2018, uma operação especial da GNR resulta na detenção de 2 pessoas e identifica 71, apreendendo 19 veículos, e pondo fim ao único espaço de convívio da comunidade de entusiastas do mundo automóvel.

Após o fim do que era chamado popularmente de “troço”, surgiu a ideia de criar um espaço para o convívio destas pessoas. De momento existe um espaço para venda junto à Escola Superior de Gestão e Tecnologia de Viseu que achamos ser ideal para a concretização deste nosso sonho que é abrir um bar chamado “Torque”, cujo tema gira à volta do mundo automóvel, não havendo nenhum espaço semelhante em Viseu.

Enquanto dois estudantes prestes a acabar o nosso curso de Informática, concretizar este projeto seria não só um sonho concretizado, mas também um modo de contribuirmos para este comunidade que sempre nos acolheu.
