Dorna and the FIM have participated in a meeting to discuss the potential for Monza to return to the World Superbike calendar in 2015.

The historic Italian circuit has been a regular fixture on the WSBK calendar over the years, but will be absent this season after seemingly failing to obtain FIM homologation.

The meeting took place at Monza on Wednesday, when discussions were held over safety improvements, and involved FIM WSBK Safety Officers and Inspectors, Igor Eskinja and Frank Vayssi? and Dorna WSBK Sporting Director Gregorio Lavilla plus members of the circuit's board.
