After hosting the World Superbike Championship this weekend, the Misano World Circuit “Marco Simoncelli” is happy to report that it will continue hosting WSBK for the next four years.

Dorna and Misano’s agreement means that the historic Italian track will continue to host the pinnacle of production motorcycle racing, adding to its already 23-year history, which makes Misano the venue with the third most WSBK rounds ever held there (behind Phillip Island and Assen).

“We are really pleased to continue our journey together with the Misano World Circuit ‘Marco Simoncelli’, a venue that has always shown great interest to the Superbike World Championship and to motorcycle racing in general,” said Daniel Carrera, WSBK Championship Director.

“A four-year renewal helps both parties to plan the future editions with renewed confidence, allowing us to do our best to keep the Riviera di Rimini Round as one the best and most enjoyable events on the calendar for fans, riders and teams.”
