The 2020 season, made up of difficult moments worldwide, of great satisfaction on the track, up to the realization of a dream, come to the last dance. On the Estoril track, just outside Lisbon, the WorldSBK protagonists will give it all to finish the season in the best possible way, with the WorldSBK title still to be awarded!

After the bad weather and the critical conditions encountered in Magny Cours, Portugal should turn out to be “easier”; the sun and the wind will be the masters, even if the temperatures seem rather cool. The track is new for almost all the riders, WorldSBK has not competed in Estoril since 1993, but the layout of the track could well suit both the Ducati V4-R and Michael’s style. On this circuit, no one has performed tests prior to the Round, so we all start from scratch. The goal is one: to take home the title of Best Independent Team, a ranking in which the Piedmontese team leads by 31 points over Ten Kate and 39 over GRT!

Furthermore, Team Go Eleven will face this weekend with an extra motivation; in recent days Michael was promoted to Ducati, in the official team. It has been a huge honor to work this season together, to see you grow and mature till celebrate your first WorldSBK victory. You have become part of our family, you are one of us and you will always be. Now enjoy the moment, you deserved it, and continue on this path, you have all the qualities to aim for the top. Together we have one last goal, to crown this 2020, let’s go out there and conquer it!

Michael Rinaldi (Rider):
“Estoril is a track that I don’t know, and only a few of my opponents have ridden here. It will be important to use the first few laps at the best, both to learn the track and to find the set-up for the race. I will pass in the Aruba Racing Ducati in 2021, so I will try to leave a good memory in the Go Eleven Team. They have been a family and they will always be, we had fun together and we achieved great results. I will always feel part of Go Eleven , I wish them a great future. Now I can’t wait to get on track to face this weekend and finish this season in style!”
