Praia to fly Portuguese flag at Portimao

Miguel Praia gets another World Supersport outing around his home circuit of Portimao, this time with Ten Kate Racing.
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.

Praia won't be the only usual face on the WSS grid this weekend with Frenchman Axel Maurin standing in for the injured Josh Day at GoEleven Kawasaki, while Yakhnich Motorsport is set to add a second Yamaha for Sergey Vlasov to ride alongside two-time podium winner Vladimir Leonov.
