Great Britain, Netherlands and Qatar jump off WorldSBK 2020 calendar
The hecatomb continues in World Superbike … The organizers regret to cancel three events that remained pending: the classic Donington Park and Assen, as well as the night Losail. The 2020 WSBK Championship drops to nine events, two of which are to be confirmed. Explanations.
The World Superbike is one week away from the resumption! After hosting the first two Grand Prix of the 2020 season (Spain and "Andalusia"!), The Jerez circuit will be the scene of the second round of the World Superbike launched five months ago in Philip Island (Australia)…
The second international motorcycle speed championship – reserved for motorcycles derived from the series, as opposed to prototypes entered in MotoGP – will travel the following week to Portimao, on the other side of the Spanish-Portuguese border. Convenient !

Confused and permanently threatened by the evolution of the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 World Superbike calendar includes four other "confirmed" dates: a double event in Aragon (late August and early September), a unique visit to the circuit of Barcelona and our national meeting at Magny-Cours (early October).
Three other appointments which remained to be determined are unfortunately canceled: Great Britain so fond of Rea, Lowes, Davies, Redding, Sykes, Laverty and Haslam, the Netherlands where Van der Mark often shines, and Qatar … where Razgatlioglu feels at home ?!
Gregorio Lavilla, executive director of the Sports and Organization departments of WorldSBK, is "deeply saddened not to be able (to) go to the birthplace of the WorldSBK in Donington Park (that was in 1988, editor’s note) and to the" cathedral of speed "at Assen, a circuit which has been on our calendar without interruption since 1992", which was a longevity record, like the MotoGP which went there every year … since 1949 !
"I am just as sad not to attend the spectacle of a night event in Qatar, which we always look forward to," added the Spanish boss, who said he "explored all avenues to find a solution, unfortunately in vain".
The organizers keep two destinations up their sleeve … holey? The holding of an event in Argentina is still envisaged … just a few days after the French and despite the disastrous health situation in which the American continent is currently !?
Finally, an additional event remains to be confirmed on the Misano circuit, scheduled from November 6 to 8. Italian fans are hopeful to see – on TV or in real life? – the World Superbike ride on their track: after all, MotoGP will be entitled to two races there, on September 13 and 20.
A small shadow hangs over the unique and uncertain Italian event of the WSBK 2020: "this championship will only have six events (seven with Australia already disputed, Editor’s note)", counted Marco Melandri last week during … to be continued, stay connected and #RestezCare !
