Brno will continue to host a round of the World Superbike Championship until 2012, despite recent concerns that it would be dropped altogether.
The Czech circuit, which is currently the only WSBK event to be held in Eastern Europe, has been a mainstay of the schedule since 2005, its blend of sweeping curves and undulations making it a popular venue for motorcycle riders.
The circuit's WSBK future was put in doubt recently, however, as talks were ongoing about a contract extension but a new deal has since been agreed, one that will keep the series coming to country's second largest city until 2012.
“As for the Czech Republic round, there have been a few issues recently but we have now concluded an accord directly with the Brno circuit so I can confirm that it will go ahead 100 per cent”, said Infront's Paolo F;ammini.
Troy Corser, Noriyuki Haga, Yukio Kagayama, James Toseland, Max Biaggi, Troy Bayliss and Ben Spies have all won races at Brno.
