Portugal’s Pires Set For Roads Return At Macau

Portugal’s Pires Set For Roads Return At Macau

Portugal’s Andre Pires is set to return to roads competition in November, sampling for the fifth time the Macau Grand Prix.

Braga based Pires, 19th in last years Macau GP also in 2016 had the honour of been one of a select few riders from his nation to have competed at the TT Races.

53rd in the Royal London 360 Quantum Superstock race, he was only the third Portuguese racer after the late but great Luis Carreira and Nuno Caetano to compete on the Mountain Course in the 2010’s to date.

An accomplished exponent of the challenging streets of Macau, he’s still to confirm which team, what machinery he will be piloting at the showpiece roads event of November.

One things for sure though, he has the core experience plus calm, cool temperament to be in contention for at minimum in my opinion, a top 10 finish.
