Magny-Cours has been given the 2009 World Superbike Organiser Award after impressing commercial rights holders Infront Motor Sports with its event hosting this season.

The circuit, from a promotional, logistical and sporting point of view, has guaranteed the required standards that helped everyone in the Superbike paddock to work in the best possible way.

"I express my warmest and most sincere congratulations to the Magny-Cours circuit management and all its staff, who have demonstrated that they fully believe in and wish to invest in our championship," said Infront Motor Sports CEO Paolo Flammini.

Additionally, the 2009 World Superbike Media Award has been assigned to the Misano World Circuit for the excellent facilities and services available at the circuit, which provided media with an opportunity to work in the best possible conditions and to promote the Championship through their work.

Magny-Cours has hosted a round of the World Superbike Championship since 2003, although it lost its traditional 'season finale' slot to Portimao in 2008.
