The Motorland Aragon round of the 2015 World Superbike Championship will be brought into line with its MotoGP counterpart with the use of a revised, faster layout.

The change will come in the final sector of the lap with the long back straight leading into a long, fast left-hander that will bring them back onto the home straight to complete the lap.

The layout is already used by MotoGP, but will be adopted by World Superbikes in 2015 in place of the previous configuration, which has a tight left-hander hairpin at the end of the straight, before leading up into a right-left sweep onto the home straight.

The revised configuration should see lap times come down by between six and eight seconds, though it does arguably eliminate one of the circuit's best overtaking opportunities.

Testing at Motorland Aragon this week saw riders use the revised layout for the first time.
