THE 2023 WORLD SUPERBIKE CALENDAR: ALL WSBK RACES AND GRAND PRIX
Once again the 2023 World Superbike championship starts in Australia, and specifically from the spectacular Phillip Island circuit.
There are 12 stages in the season, which begins the weekend of Feb. 26 and concludes on Oct. 15 in San Juan, with the Argentine leg of the superbike world championship.
Europe arrives on the 2023 World Superbike calendar from April 23, when the Superbike paddock lands in the Netherlands at the historic TT circuit Assen . The Dutch round is followed by Spain, Italy, England, the Czech Republic, France and Portugal, before the final weekend with the South American season finale.
Superbike: two Grand Prix in Italy and two races in Spain
The Superbike championship will be in Italy at two times: for the Emilia Romagna round at the Misano world circuit Marco Simoncelli in Misano Adriatico (June 2-4) and at the Prometeon Italian Round at the Imola track (July 14-16).
There are also two Spanish stops: at the Circuit de Barcelona Catalunya and at Aragon, where World SBK will now be the premier category after MotoGP is no longer on the calendar.
Differences with the MotoGP Calendar
Besides -evidently- the number of rounds, there are other differences between the SBK Calendar and the MotoGP calendar. While touching similar countries, the two championships on many occasions run on different tracks.
This is the case, for example, of England, where the prototype championship is held at the Silverstone track, shared with Formula 1, while Superbike races at the historic Donington Park track in Derby. Something similar happens in Argentina-where Termas de Rio Hondo and San Juan share the two top motorcycling series-and in France, where MotoGP chooses the LeMans track while Superbike chooses Magny Cours
For years then in Italy the Superbike elected the spectacular and super technical track of Imola, without instead racing at Mugello, while in the Czech Republic the Most circuit is the one of choice, and not the Brno one, which hosted MotoGP until a few seasons ago and which in recent years is unfortunately encountering quite a few difficulties.
