World Superbikes 2017 calendar confirmed

chaz_davies_test_leden_2017The World Superbike Championship has confirmed its calendar for 2017. There was still one race weekend to be announced but it’s all solved by now. The Championship will go to Jerez in the second half of October. This will be the penultimate round of the Championship for WorldSBK and WorldSSP and the final round for WorldSSP300 and STK1000.

The season starts already in a few weeks in Australia, then they go to Thailand. Third round of the season will see the teams in Spain for the first time when they travel to Aragon. There the WorldSSP300 and STK1000 season starts as well.

Then it goes one European round by one. It all is just interrupted by the US GP at Laguna Seca in July. Only World Superbike category will be racing there.

The season then finishes in Qatar again and the race weekend will be held from Thursday to Saturday (not Friday – Sunday like the other rounds).

Before the season starts there will be also the official pre-season test in Australia. Teams from both World Superbike and World Supersport will take part. This test is scheduled to 20 and 21 February, just a few days before it all starts officially.

There are also mid-season tests planned for the WorldSBK class. It should be in Aragon (3 April) and then in Algarve (18 September).
