Sunday, 28 January 2024 06:40 GMT

It’s the last chance to refine things before heading to Australia ahead of the new season getting underway…

Just a few days after the Jerez test concluded, the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship is back in action again. This time at the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve, the entire paddock will descend on the famous rollercoaster venue to test for two days on Monday and Tuesday next week with it being the last test for teams and riders before everything is sent to Australia. It is therefore a vitally important test to make sure everything is in the best possible shape and with Portimao’s mix of fast and close corners, plus long straights, it is the perfect testing venue ahead of the 2024 campaign.

Track action takes place from 10am to 5pm (Local Time, GMT+0) on both Monday and Tuesday. To read about what you can expect to see from the Portimao test, catch up on all the action from Jerez. The Day 2 report is available here, showing who’s got work to do and who’s looking good, while you can read all the juicy stories that came from Jerez in the Hot Headlines.
