As much as I like Suzuka as a track I can't see it. Reason 1 is safety, I beleive the FIM revoked Suzuka's homologation after Daijiro Kato's death and Reason 2 is that the Suzuka 8 Hours is the premier event at the circuit and is also for Superbikes. I doubt the promoters would want the comparison, much like SBK and AMA run on different layouts at Miller Motorsports Park.

Great so now all we need is a race in Japan and it really will be the WORLD SBK championship. It amazes me that most of these bikes are Japanese and they don't have a race there! Means we could get some wildcards back as well, I follow the MFJ All Japan Series and there are a couple of riders in the SBK class who would be able to compete of the World SBK lot came to town e.g. Takumi Takahashi, Katsuyuki Nakasuga and Kosouke Akiyoshi

@Mates29, that shows how immature you are. BIC is considered now the best circuit in the world & beats kayalami, sugo old circuits handsdown. It is a modern circuit with very well thought elevations, turnings etc. It would probably also mean the 2nd fastest race track on the calendar.
I watched F1 @ BIC & was flabbergasted. No sugo kayalami stands chance before BIC. Even most of the drivers including the top three were madly in love with the circuit. Go India, go BIC.
