Miguel Praia will give Portuguese visitors to Portimao something to cheer about after being signed up by Ten Kate Racing to ride at his home event.

The experienced WSS racer made his return to the series last time out at the Nurburgring as a deputy for the injured Pawel Szkopek at Bogdanka Honda, but will now switch to the Ten Kate Racing Products backed CBR600RR at Portimao.

Riding alongside Broc Parkes, Praia will look to build on the 16th place he managed on his return in Germany around a circuit he has enjoyed some of his best WSS results on in the past.
