Usually one of the events reserved for the latter part of the season, this year sees a change in schedule.
The 4.182 km – long track changes at almost every corner, posing a new challenge for the two Riders from WTR-Ten10 Racing team. The potpourri of slow and fast corners, one hard chicane and heavy braking spots, for example the first corner’s one, make of the Estoril circuit one of the fastest and exciting tracks of the championship.
Given the particular geographic position on the Atlantic Ocean coast, the weather conditions are highly suspect; in fact, the forecast already predicts weather changeovers from sun to rain and clouds. The Team will thus need to cope with the bike and tyres settings based on the fluctuating weather.
For Francesco and Sarath, it is going to be a pretty demanding challenge not only due to the intrinsic features of the track, but also due to the requirement of learning as much as possible about the track that is completely new to them. This can only be motivation for the two Riders, still fresh from the experience at the Spanish National Championship CEV last week, during which their performance showed a clear improvement.
The Easter Holidays have served the purpose of invigorating Francesco and Sarath body and mind, and attaining top physical shape for the race weekend. By making good use of what they have learnt and improved upon recently, they are ready to get back to the track with a newfound edge and with the expectation of achieving good results.
Only a few more days and WTR-Ten10 Racing Team will be in the thick of the action this weekend in Portugal for the third round of the championship!
