With Leon Haslam joining the new-look HRC WorldSBK team and Michael Ruben Rinaldi heading to Team Go Eleven Ducati for 2020, the World Superbike championship grid is starting to take shape for next season.

Toprak Razgatlioglu has replaced Alex Lowes at the Pata Yamaha team with the British rider heading to Kawasaki alongside Jonathan Rea as pace gathers for next year over the final rounds of this season.

With Leon Haslam joining Honda after being axed at Kawasaki and Lowes duly filling that spot for 2020, only a handful of race seats remain open. BSB champion Scott Redding is set for his rookie World Superbike campaign as he replaces Alvaro Bautista at the factory Ducati team with the Spanish rider heading to Honda.

Marco Melandri is retiring from racing at the end of the 2019 World Superbike championship, while GRT Yamaha has revealed an all-new line-up of Federico Caricasulo and Garrett Gerloff.

The majority of World Superbike teams will begin winter testing for the 2020 season at Jerez in late November – five weeks after the 2019 season finale in Qatar at the Losail International Circuit on October 24-26.

The full 2020 World Superbike championship calendar is yet to be announced but the season will get underway at Phillip Island on February 28 - 1 March.
