With a forced stop in place due to continual coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, further changes have been made to the 2020 MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship calendar.

With the ongoing fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, The FIM, Government Officials, Circuits & Dorna WSBK Organization informs of further changes needed to be made to the 2020 WorldSBK Calendar, with rounds being rescheduled & regrettably, cancelled.
Rescheduled:
• Aragon Round (previously 22nd – 24th May) rescheduled 28th – 30th August.
• Riviera Di Rimini Round (previously 12th – 14th June) rescheduled 6th – 8th November Italy
Cancelled:
• Acerbis Italian Round (previously 8th – 10th May)
The FIM and Dorna WSBK Organization will continue working extensively with Government Officials and Circuits, analysing the situation in every country with great detail.
It is however with great regret that after reviewing all scenarios and in agreement with Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari di Imola circuit, the Acerbis Italian Round will be cancelled, due to the evolution of the current general situation, and the ongoing worldwide motorsport calendar update with its logistical challenges.
Information will be communicated accordingly if further changes to the 2020 Calendar are made.

Dichiarazione di Andrea Albani, managing director Misano World Circuit

In questo momento prevale l’incertezza perché alla complessità della definizione dei calendari sportivi, sulla base dei lockdown dei vari Paesi, si aggiunge quella sulle modalità con le quali gli eventi potranno svolgersi. Ci sono tanti aspetti da valutare. Certamente dobbiamo stare uniti per proteggere ogni segmento della lunga filiera del motorpsort, senza dimenticare e lasciare indietro nessuno.

Quanto alla riprogrammazione del Riviera di Rimini Round del WorldSBK a novembre, è coerente con gli obiettivi che cerchiamo di centrare, ossia mantenere in calendario tutti gli eventi programmati. Sarà la condizione di sicurezza per tutti coloro che entreranno in circuito a guidarci; stiamo già lavorando su questo aspetto ed aspettiamo le regole che saranno definite. Certamente ne adotteremo di ulteriori e più stringenti perché queste sono le basi solide dalle quali ripartire. Serve uno sforzo comune e molto realista: sappiamo che nulla sarà come prima, ma dobbiamo tutti fare il massimo perché si riaccenda presto il semaforo verde, ma adeguandoci al nuovo mondo che ci attende.
