Please find enclosed the Press Release / MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship/FIM Supersport and Supersport 300 World Championships 2020 calendar, UPDATE 24 JULY.
British, Dutch and Qatari WorldSBK rounds cancelled
Despite the very best efforts of all involved, three rounds have been cancelled as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
After extensive discussions and the assessment of a multitude of possibilities and scenarios, the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) and Dorna WSBK Organization (DWO regret to announce the cancellation of three events that were previously to be determined (TBD) and to be confirmed (TBC). The safety of all parties within the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship paddock is of top priority and whilst the season is carrying on, a solution was not possible to incorporate every venue, given the challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The UK Round at Donington Park (previously postponed and TBD), the Dutch Round at the TT Circuit Assen (previously rescheduled, then postponed and TBD) and the Qatar Round at the Losail International Circuit (previously postponed and TBD) have been cancelled. It will be the first time in WorldSBK history that there won’t be a round in the United Kingdom, whilst the TT Circuit Assen has been a permanent fixture on the calendar since 1992, ending a streak of the longest continually serving venue in WorldSBK.
The 2020 Championship will now follow the latest planned schedule and any further updates will be communicated accordingly in due course.
