Great Stuff. I would now like to see a round in Japan at Suzuka and you truely have a global world series.

I would even think WSB could do 18 rounds a season if it were properly organised, ie visit America once for the 2 rounds there, then Europe once, with consecutive Italian rounds. Forget clashes with F1 etc. WSB has a big enough fan base.

Congratulations to indonesia.

@ jonsty

I agree, i actually said yesterday that i'd love to see a suzuka round. But for it to be truly global again, they'll have to find a way to bring it back to SOUTH AFRICA! From what i've heard, the riders quite enjoy Kyalami. And then south america needs a round too.. Then, THEN we have a global championship:)

Well Done Indonesia! I would like o see Laguna back on the calendar too but as long as MotoGP is there... it won't happen! I know WSB is trying to get back into Asia but hopefully a round in South America will be soon either at Buenos Aires Circuit in Argentina or the Rio circuit in Brazil of Interlargos! I would like to see thme go back to A1 (Red Bull) Ring i know it's in Austria but i think it's one of the best tracks in the world with amazing scenery!

i was thinking dorna was beatin' to the punch after all those PR visits by motogp riders...? then i remembered bridgepoint owns both series.

re: “I would even think WSB could do 18 rounds a season if it were properly organised, ie visit America once for the 2 rounds there, then Europe once, with consecutive Italian rounds.”

in my merger plan the focus is on "collective compromise" so unfortunately there's only room for 16 rounds (basically an 8 month season x 2 per month). motogp reduces -2, but wsbk increases by +3. while it's not 18, it IS something to look forward to. :) to address the complaint of too many rounds in a particular country neither spain, nor italy, nor the US (nor any country for that matter) will be visited more than 1x per season going forward. yes, the "unified championship" will visit places like india, south america, and russia. spain could get a 2nd round, but only as a backup given their stable weather. this, in the event of natural disaster or some ot

No wonder, there are Ducati's showrooms already spread in Indonesia big cities. Also Benelli and Piaggio. Indonesia becomes interesting market for motorcycle manufacturers. So it's the reason behind the held of wsbk (and motogp) in the country, in years to come. CMIIW
