World Superbikes organisers are hard at work as they attempt to get the 2020 race season back underway this August.
With the season halted after the first round of the season at Phillip Island due to the coronavirus outbreak, Dorna is putting plans together to restart racing at Jerez across July 31 – August 2.
Then it’s over to the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve in Portugal a week later, with the action taking place across August 7-9 – before heading to the MotorLand Aragon for August 28–30.
Of course, at this stage there’s still a lot of work to be done to ensure the racing can go ahead. It’s expected that these three rounds will be held behind closed doors, in-line with the social distancing
Speaking about the news, WorldSBK Executive Director Gregorio Lavilla said: “We are very positive about the future, as all the signs are pointing in a good direction to start in Jerez. We are looking at all possible scenarios for all three classes to race, although we continue to work hard on finding the optimum scenario for all parties. A lot will depend on the measures that various governments will implement. As for Donington Park and Assen, we are working with the circuits and governments to establish the best possible outcome for all, with the intention to hold those rounds towards the end of the 2020 season.”
