The full race calendar for next season’s World Superbike Championship has just been released – and the big news is that the paddock won’t be heading to Laguna Seca or Buriram in 2020.
Taking place across 11 different countries across four different continents, the 2020 WSB season kicks off at Phillip Island in Australia from 28th – 1st March. It’s then to Qatar, to race under the floodlights of the Losail International Circuit for Round Two of the season from 13th – 15th March. Next up is the Circuito de Jerez, for the first European Round of the 2020 across the 27th – 29th March. Then the circus heads north to the Netherlands and the historic “Cathedral of Speed” of TT Circuit Assen for Round 4 from 17th – 19th April.
Round 5 will take place at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari di Imola in Italy, from 8th – 10th May, before the Championship returns to Spain from 22nd – 24th May at MotorLand Aragón. Round 7 is at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli from 12th – 14th June, before the World Superbike Championship heads to Donington Park circuit across 3rd – 5th July. From 31st-2nd August the Championship will return to Germany to compete at Motosport Arena Oschersleben for Round 9 – before heading to Portimao in Portugal from the 4th – 6th September.
Across the 18th – 20th September, the championship will make its debut at the famous Circuit de Barcelona – Catalunya – and a week later WSB will head straight to France for the final European round of the year at Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours. Finally, the paddock heads to the Circuito San Juan Villicum in Argentina for the season finale.
