Provisional World Superbike Calendar for 2013 Released World Superbike logo 635x423

At Magny-Cours this weekend, World Superbike released its provisional calendar for the 2013 WSBK Championship. Subject to some change, maybe more so now that Dorna is in charge of things, the big changes to the 2013 calendar over this season is the addition of a round in India, as well as the American round moving from Miller Motorsports Park to Laguna Seca.

World Superbike returns to Russia again for 2013, helping the series branch out a bit from the Western Europe centrality. Along that same vein, both Misano and Brno are absent from the 2013 calendar, with the second race in June still to be announced.

We would expect Brno to get filled-in at this slot, since the Eastern Europe circuit has the right geography, solvency, and attendance support when compared to the Italian track. However, as always, time will tell. The 2013 World Superbike Provisional Calendar for 2013 is after the jump.

    Too bad. Plenty of good tracks here and I think it could help increase visability in the sport

    I was thinking come out for MGP and stay for WSBK not going to work. maybe I’ll have to make 2 trips to Ca. and beats the hell out of MMP. I see a TBA just maybe they’ll add one in Phoenix.

    I am going to hit CA for the ESBK race and check out Austin this year for the MotoGP. That circuit looks amazing so far.

  5. Quite right, Dan. But please could it be Suzuka or Sugo and not Motegi.

    Oh!?! You meant Malaysia/Indonesia/Thailand/China and not Japan? There’s nothing in South America either, but then they’re not quite so motorcycle crazy as SE Asia.
