Four days after the exciting and spectacular weekend in Jerez de la Frontera, the Superbike circus moves on the “rollercoaster”; Portimao,  Round 03 theatre, is ready to host WorldSBK!

Team Go Eleven and Michael Ruben Rinaldi come from an excellent weekend on the Andalusian track which got to the Piedmontese Team 23 points overall, with a sixth and a fourth place achieved in the two races, in addition to the amazing battle won against the Cannibal Rea. Spirits is high, the goal is to take advantage of the moment and confirm ourself in the main positions. Riders will find slightly different conditions, with less extreme temperatures and a technically different track; the ups and downs, the fast turns alternating with slow hairpins and the long finish straight make the Portuguese track complete. A real spectacle for those who watch through the screens, but also a track loved by many WorldSBK protagonists.

Let’s see the action, let’s see motorbikes on track, let’s leave space to entertainment; an adrenaline-packed weekend to follow ahead!

Michael Rinaldi (Rider):
“Here we are in Portimao, That’s a lovely and funny track, but different from Jerez. We will have to work well from Friday morning to find the right set-up. Last weekend we were very fast, so we are in a positive period; we have to continue our growth. The temperatures will be cooler, so we will face less extreme conditions, but it will take a perfect job all three days to fight with the leading group!”
