The penultimate race of the season is just around the corner: Filip Salac and Ryusei Yamanaka are looking forward to the race in Portimao, Portugal.
It was the second circuit to host a MotoGP race this year – now, on the second-last race weekend of the 2021 season, another Grand Prix is scheduled at the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve. In Portugal, Ryusei Yamanaka and Filip Salac will chase over the rollercoaster circuit, as the race track in the south of Portugal is called due to its many bumps and height changes. A challenge for rider and bike, which will lead the riders of the CarXpert PrüstelGP team over 4.6 kilometers, through 6 left and 9 right corners.

Filip Salac #12:
“I really like the track in Portimao – despite the many tricky sections with all the bumps, the speed is rather high, which basically suits me very well. The last time I was in Portimao I was still riding the Honda, so in that regard it will be a bit of an change for me. But I’m sure that after the last few weekends, on which we have worked really well, we can continue the progress in Portugal. I’m looking forward to getting back on the bike in Portimao soon!”
Ryusei Yamanaka #6:
“I have good memories of the first race in Portimao at the start of the season. So I’m going to Portugal with good confidence – especially since I also had a positive feeling on the bike in Misano. I will concentrate, as I also did at the last weekends, on being straight at the front groups, especially in the practice sessions, and on making the direct step into Q2. I hope our strategy works this weekend and we can tackle the performance in the race from a good position.”
