Unlike MotoGP, which will have competed in quick succession two Grand Prix on the same Andalusian circuit the two previous weekends, the WorldSBK will travel from August 7 to 9 on the neighboring circuit of Portimao in Portugal. Then three Spanish events will take place in Aragon (two weekends) and Barcelona.
“Restarting the season in Spain is very appropriate, given the difficulties the country faced during the pandemic. With Portimao after Jerez, then MotorLand Aragón at the end of the month, it can be a nice return to normal for everyone, "observes Gregorio Lavilla, Executive Director of the Sport and Organization Departments of WorldSBK.
To date, the only other event confirmed on the calendar – still very provisional – of the WorldSBK 2020 is the one scheduled for early October in Magny-Cours (France). A week later, the Superbike and Supersport riders may have to travel to San Juan (Argentina). Perhaps…
The only Italian event (since the cancellation of Imola) is scheduled for early November in Misano but must also be confirmed. Three other meetings in Great Britain, the Netherlands and Qatar are still in the pipes … blocked? The answer soon: stay connected !
A record number of points in World Supersport ?
What is certain, however, is that the World Supersport pilots – in the intermediate "600" category as well as the youngsters in the "300" – will have the right to an additional race on Saturday! Taking into account Australia and the eight other events currently scheduled, 425 points will therefore be at stake this season in WSSP. Much more than in previous "normal" seasons !
"The history of WorldSSP and WorldSSP300 helps enrich the atmosphere of the WorldSBK paddock by often offering some of the tightest races of the season and allowing the stars of tomorrow to prosper on the world stage", rightly emphasizes Gregorio The villa.
Doubling the races in Supersport is therefore excellent news also for spectators … or viewers only initially: "the situation is changing from day to day, which means that the protocols will be adapted according to the current situation ", warn the organizers. To follow on the Site: stay connected !
