2010 season gets underway with official testing at Portimao

Three days of official pre-season testing at the Algarve Circuit in Portugal from Friday 22 to Sunday 24 January will herald the start of the 2010 Superbike World Championship.

The Portuguese track, the venue for the final round of the 2009 season three months ago, will once again be the location for the year’s first World Superbike and World Supersport action as all the top teams and riders prepare for the coming season.

A total of fourteen hours of testing for World Superbike and nine for World Supersport are scheduled on the programme, with action starting at 8.30 am and concluding at 4.40 pm on all three days.

The full line-up of teams and riders will be communicated next week.
