FIM MiniGP Portugal Series hits Portimao for special weekend

Not only did the future stars of Portugal fight it out over two races in Portimao but they got to meet some of their MotoGP™ heroes

FIM MiniGP Portugal Series is back and in full swing for 2022, with the road to the World Final in Valencia having its latest stop at the Tissot Grand Prix of Portugal. Portugal’s next hotshots got the chance to share the stage with the stars of MotoGP™, as they showcased their skills at the Algarve International Circuit.


Two races took place on Wednesday with Pedro Matos having a day to remember. He claimed pole position earlier in the day before then going on to dominate both Race 1 and Race 2, winning the first by seven seconds and the second by five seconds. Alexandre Cabá took second in both races behind Matos, with Carlota Carochinho taking the final podium spot in Race 1 and Adelino Patronilho clinching third in Race 2.

That wasn’t all for our MiniGP riders though, as the top three in the title chase (Alexandre Cabá, Adelino Patronilho and Carlota Carochinho) got the chance to meet and chat with home hero Miguel Oliveira inside his Red Bull KTM Factory Racing garage on Thursday. They left with a signed cap, a signed screen of the front of Oliveira’s factory KTM RC16, plus plenty of photos and memories. They then finished a special day at the official pre-event Press Conference, where they got the chance to ask a question to Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez, Ducati Lenovo Team’s Jack Miller and Portugal’s own Oliveira.
