The next race for Kallio Racing is this weekend, the 15th – 17th September in Portimao Portugal. The run for the road racing world championship continues for both classes the team is participating in, World Supersport and WorldSSP300. In the previous race, Lausitzring in Germany, Kallio Racing and Sheridan Morais both took their first ever win in World Supersport class. The expectations are high for this weekend as well. Morais, who lives in Portugal, is very much at home on the race circuit and of course extra push is gained from the fact that the World Championship in World Supersport class is far from being set yet. Morais is currently third in the World Championship standings, 20 points behind the current leader Lucas Mahias.
The new Yamaha R6 bikes the team took out in Lausitzring could not have had better premiere, both Morais and team mate Niki Tuuli were very comfortable, confident and fast on them from the first laps. More good to come this weekend, we are sure!
”Sheridan’s win was a magnificent thing for the whole team. New bikes have made both our riders faster, Sheridan and Niki are in a good place right now. In Portugal the aim is no less than being on the podium, the goal is the same for both riders. It is great to have some friendly competition within the team and between the riders.” Team Manager Vesa Kallio reminds.
Also World Supersport 300 riders Finnish Kimi Patova and Brazilian Renzo Ferreira are looking forward the weekend. The amazing track, Autódromo Internacional do Algarve, is news for the freshmen and the first impression is it is a challenging kind, as Patova puts it.
