Amparo Porto

Born in Palma de Mallorca on 23 October 1966, Amparo completed a course in international secretarial studies at the Mary Ward College in Madrid and finished her training at the Eaton Language Centre in the United Kingdom.

After completing her studies, she entered the workplace, obtaining employment as an executive assistant for a number of companies headquartered in Madrid. However, the Companies’ policies did not give her the career opportunities she was seeking and in 1992 she joined Dorna as secretary to Carmelo Ezpeleta, who was Director General of Dorna Sports at the time. There she found the professional project she had been looking for, full of challenges and opportunities.  

 In her professional life, she experienced at first hand the major changes that have taken place at Dorna since the Company acquired the TV rights of the FIM Motorcycling World Championship in 1992.  This experience enabled Amparo to acquire further expertise and develop her full professional potential. In 2000, she was appointed Events Manager for the FIM World Championship Grands Prix.

In 2002 she became Director of Dorna’s Promoters Division, combining this position with the running of the FIM CEV Repsol, a project she took on in 2006. This Championship, which now comprises the FIM Moto3 Junior World Championship, the Moto2 European Championship and the Suberbike European Championship, has provided her with a great professional challenge, and her efforts have been amply crowned with success.   

In her private life, Amparo is mother of two girls, a lover of nature and an inveterate traveller. Her great passions are cooking, gardening and crocheting. Her friends describe her as a tough, decisive, enthusiastic person, at once determined and generous.
