Porto to test with KTM after Valencia

Porto to test with KTM after Valencia

Argentine former World Championship rider Sebastian Porto´s ambitions to return to Grand Prix competition have apparently been given a boost by KTM.

Sebastian Porto is on the comeback trail. The experienced Argentine recently stated his intention to return to the World Championship and his plans have stepped up a level following an agreement to test a 250cc KTM prototype at the end of the season, in the traditional post-Valencia workouts.

The 30 year-old former Barcelona resident who left the Grand Prix scene in 2006, has recently started a family in his native Argentina, where he has been keeping fit by competing in national races.

Porto will hope his KTM test session will lead to additional MotoGP opportunities, though he has reportedly already received an offer to ride with Aprilia in superbike competition next year.
