WorldSBK, WorldSSP and WorldSSP300 races will all be available to Czech and Slovakian fans, as broadcast channels Nova Sport and Voyo have completed a five year agreement with Dorna WorldSBK Organisation (DWO). 

A statement from World Superbike organisers said: "Dorna WSBK Organization (DWO), Nova Sport and Voyo are delighted to announce a five-year agreement that will see all the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship races accessible live to fans in the Czech Republic and Slovakia for the next five seasons."

Over the course of WorldSBK history, the Czech Republic in particular has been well represented with 19 riders having competed in the series, including Jakub Smrz who now runs his own Accolade Smrz Racing team in WorldSSP300. 

The Czech Republic has also been a mainstay for many years in both WorldSBK and MotoGP, with the Brno circuit hosting the former championship from 1993-2018, while in MotoGP, it’s last race was as recent as last season. 

Speaking after the Official news was released, Managing Director of TV and Media Area, Dorna Sports, Manel Arroyo added: "We are pleased to join forces with Nova Sport and Voyo for the next five seasons. 

"With Czech participation in the Championship and the historical Czech passion for motorsports, it is great news that we are able, together with Nova Sport and Voyo, to bring WorldSBK closer to the Czech and Slovakian fans. 

"We look forward to collaborating with the Nova Sport and Voyo teams and continuing to grow our audience in the Czech Republic and Slovakia."

The 2021 WorldSBK begins in just under one month’s time on May 21-23, while several teams including defending champions Kawasaki and Pata Yamaha will conclude their pre-season testing next week at MotorLand Aragon.
