The Superbike World Championship is set to get back into action with the final phase of the 2019 season, beginning with the Portuguese round that will take place at the Algarve International Circuit Portimao this coming weekend.
With rider Leon Camier’s return planned for the French round at the end of this month, in Portugal the Moriwaki Althea Honda Team will field current All Japan Road Race JSB1000 Championship leader Takumi Takahashi alongside Ryuichi Kiyonari.
The Japanese duo have already shared the garage during a two-day official testing session on 24-25 August at the same track.
