After weeks of speculation, the provisional calendar for the 2014 World Superbike Championship has been revealed with an interesting blend of returning venues, new venues and a greater worldwide footprint.

The first WSBK calendar to be fully drafted by Dorna, the 2014 schedule is certainly notable for its greater international theme, with as many as five 'overseas' events set to take place, compared to just two in 2013.

While the inclusion of Phillip Island as the traditional season opener wasn't a surprise, there was at least pleasure that Laguna Seca was retained for another year having been discarded from the MotoGP schedule.

New for 2014, Malaysia's Sepang - a Dorna favourite - will get its first WSBK event in 2014 and represents the series' first visit to the Far East since 2003, when the championship last raced in Japan in Sugo.

Meanwhile, South Africa makes an unexpected return to the schedule as the plotted penultimate event of the year. Though it's only been four years since the series last visited the African continent at Kyalami, the return to former MotoGP haunt Phakisa Freeway (better known as Welkom) has been met with approval.

As it stands, however, one event remains 'TBA' and, crucially, it is arguably the most important of the year - the season finale.

Interestingly, Dorna has already pencilled in a date - November 2nd - and confirmed it will be held 'overseas' thus suggesting the 2014 finale won't be held on European soil for the first time in more than a decade when Sugo brought down the curtain to the 1999 season. It's a potentially bold move given there wasn't a single non-European rider at the start of the 2013 WSBK season.

As such, the question begs - which overseas venue (not European) would you like to see receive the honour of hosting the final round of the 2014 World Superbike Championship?

Perhaps you'd like to see a return to Japan - either Sugo, Motegi or Suzuka -, think Australia should book-end the season, or maybe you think the Buddh circuit in India should get the nod having been forced to cancel its event in 2013.

Maybe you're interested in seeing the series competing in the Middle East with a night race at in Qatar or Dubai, or think the United States deserves two events, perhaps at the new Circuit of the Americas in Texas.

What about South America? The continent is, after all, certainly Dorna's radar at the moment with new events in Argentina and Brazil at Termas de Rio Hondo and Brasilia respectively included on the 2014 MotoGP schedule.

With so many options, we'd like you to have your say on the 2014 WSBK calendar and where you'd like to see the season conclude.
