FIM reveals 2013 WSBK calendar
The FIM confirms an expanded 15-round schedule for 2013 with Jerez, Laguna Seca and Buddh joining the calendar, but Misano, Brno and Miller Motorsports Park are missing.
Following the earlier confirmation that Jerez, Laguna Seca and the Buddh International Circuit will join the World Superbike schedule in 2013, the FIM has unveiled the full provisional calendar for next season.
Receiving one of the biggest shake-ups for several years, the schedule will possibly swell to 15 rounds next season and venture further afield than before with flyaway events in Australia, the United States and, for the first time, India.
The calendar also reveals that Jerez will be included on the 2013 schedule in addition to fellow Spanish venue Motorland Aragon, which in turn moves from a mid-season slot to the first European round of the season in April.
As it stands, just one event on 23rd June remains TBA with both Brno and Misano currently missing from the schedule. Italy will still have at least two events though, with Monza hosting round five in its traditional May slot and Imola getting the ninth event of the year in June.
Additionally, there is no room on the calendar for Miller Motorsports Park, the unloved Utah circuit being replaced by Laguna Seca and moved to a September date.
Elsewhere, Portimao and Moscow get earlier calendar slots than this year in June and July. All dates and venue remain provisional for the time being.
