The Bennetts British Superbike championship has confirmed both its scheduled rounds in May at Oulton Park and Donington Park have been postponed amid coronavirus measures.

Following the initial postponement of its 2020 opener and pre-season test at Silverstone, BSB officials have been forced to call off its subsequent two rounds at Oulton Park (May 1-3) and Donington Park (May 22-24). The measures have been taken following the latest national government updates which have seen MCRCB and the ACU suspend all racing until at least the end of May.

It means the 2020 BSB season will aim to get underway at Snetterton on June 19-21, but the current race calendar remains provisional as championship organisers aim to reschedule the postponed rounds into the 2020 calendar.

“Yesterday (23 March) the UK Government announced further and unprecedented measures designed to suppress the spread of the Coronavirus and limit COVID-19 infections,” a BSB statement read.

“Following the latest Government updates, the MCRCB and the ACU have currently suspended all motorcycle circuit racing events until at least May 31, a decision which will be kept under review as the situation progresses.

“MSVR can confirm that in addition to last week’s postponement of the opening round at Silverstone (April 10/11/12), the Oulton Park (May 1/2/3) and Donington Park (May 22/23/24) rounds of the 2020 Bennetts British Superbike Championship have now also been postponed.

“Series promoter and organiser MSVR is continuing to work closely with teams, circuits, broadcasters and partners to evaluate the constantly-changing situation and will provide further updates when available.”
