Oschersleben returns as WorldSBK heads back to Germany in 2020


The German round is back on the calendar and will take place at Oschersleben for the first time since 2004.

16 years after WSB was last there, German track Oschersleben has been put back on the calendar. Racing at the venue starts in 2020.

From July 31st to August 2nd, the 2020 MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship takes place in Motorsport Arena Oschersleben. This means WorldSBK is returning to Germany after two seasons without a round.


The Motorsport Arena Oschersleben itself has already been part of WSB from 2000 to 2004 and will be one of 13 rounds in 2020.

Ralph Bohnhorst, Executive Director of Motorsport Arena Oschersleben is looking forward to the return of the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship to Germany: “First of all, I am happy that WorldSBK will race again in Germany. It is a great opportunity for the Motorsport Arena to be a good host for a prestigious international championship.  I am taking to heart the matter of enabling the return of the Superbike World Championship to Oschersleben after its last appearance in the years from 2000 to 2004. I am sure that both us and our guests will be able to experience the finest of motorsports and exciting races at Oschersleben.”

I look forward to the round in front of the German audience and can’t wait to see the racing action unfold in Germany for the first time in three years.”
