What a mess.
Has there ever been an occasion when the calendar is still so much up in the air even after the season has started?
It didn't take Dorna long to bring WSB down to the same level of farce as MotoGP has become.

Everybody has the same view of this matter.

PLEASE , take the control out of DORNAs hands.
They are killing the sport. If they continue ruining the sbk championship, there will be no interest from thr fans, and subsequent lack of profit for you.

Many people stoped watching MGP, because its no longer interesting, and now the mamufacturers are starting to disagree with dorna on wsbk. This is not the way to go!!

Please, do something...

Yes, I appreciate Dorna hasn't and won't do WSBK any favours but if promotkrs and particularly the Silverstone people reduced their prices then more people would brave/put up with the poor weather?/layout and viewing that Silverstone specialises in. Surely they would be more likely to meet the sanctioning fee if this approach was taken. In these Austere times they are in cloud cuckoo land with the prices they are wanting to charge. Donington is the same to a degree but people are more likely to patronise the place knowing that generally (despite the infield) they will have a better spectating experience.

Carmelo Expletive strikes again.

The "improved management" of WSBK is doing a great job. Already changes are happening. The calendar is much more flexible.

will this help me plan my trip to the U.K. for the TT some BSB a bit of WSBK and a Gp or two.
NO. i don't think it will.

Turkey is a good circuit I would love to see bikes back at the Autodromo. Istanbul Park. The problem is Istanbul Park is Not in Spain! so the will not get a round. Carmelo & his cronies want what they want.
In my opinion Turkey doesn't fit in with their plans.
Good luck to the Turks with their bid. fingers crossed.

In my opinion the A-1 ring is not a great circuit, there have been good races there in the past.
the O-ring was an awesome track.
of corse international motorcycle racing will not return to the Osterreichring. Have a look at the video from the early nineties. I can remember Anthony Gobert on the Muzzy zxr750 performing huge slides off the turns.

The on track action at Phillip island was good bu
