Sepang has asked fans to help decide 'whether or not FIM WSBK will come to Malaysia'.
The circuit, home of the Malaysian MotoGP and F1 events as well as being the main MotoGP pre-season testing venue, has long been linked with a World Superbike event.
Negotiations have never previously reached a successful conclusion. However that may be about to change with the official Sepang Facebook page asking: “In the scale of 1 to 10 (10 being I'll do anything for this), tell us how bad you want FIM WSBK championship to be brought to Malaysian soil. We want to hear from you.”
A subsequent post added: “Folks. Thank you very much for all the feedback on FIM WSBK Championship yesterday. We hear you and as much as everyone else, we also want this to happen.
“We invite you again to fill in a simple survey at below link. Remember, your participation will help to decide on whether or not FIM WSBK will come to Malaysia.
“Here's the survey link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/HW96D68
As well as Sepang, Misano, Qatar and even the Red Bull Ring in Austria are rumoured as potential new/returning WSBK events for 2014. Next year's World Superbike calendar is yet to be announced.
A record 126,917 fans attended this year's Malaysian MotoGP weekend, including 84,250 on race day.
