Racing Mackerel is the literal translation of a Portuguese expression “carapau de corrida”, which is used in the Portuguese saying: “Estás armado em carapau de corrida” – Do you think you are a racing mackerel, that means to get cocky or to show off.
But do not worry …
We chose the name because it is a well-known and funny Portuguese idiomatic expression.
Our racing mackerel is very friendly and humble!

Portugal, one of the oldest countries in Europe, is located in the south-west of the Iberian Peninsula, between Spain in the north and east, and the Atlantic Ocean in the south and west.
Centuries of history have originated a variety of traditions and cultural traits that mark the society and the country in the most diverse areas.
