Sebas Porto speaks out ahead of the race he likes to call his home GP

As the only South American rider in the 250cc World Championships Sebastian Porto can expect a high level of support this weekend.

The GP in Rio was the scene of his one and only victory to-date and was all the more remarkable because it was achieved somewhat against the odds on the under-powered 250cc Yamaha at the time. Now riding a factory Honda Porto has had a tough season of adaptation but is still pumped for the race on Saturday as this exclusive video interview shows.

"It is a special race in Rio; there's no home GP in Argentina and so in Brazil it's like that for me. There are sixteen races in the season but this one has a special flavour because there are lots of Argentineans who go up to watch and I've got good memories. Every year I go there I seem to do well, especially last year where I won in a GP, it was all like a great dream really." Click on the appropriate link to see the video interview.
