Following the news of Dorna WSBK completing a five-year deal to broadcast every race on Czech and Slovakian channels Nova Sport and Voyo, the Autodrom Most circuit will make its first ever appearance on the World Superbike calendar in 2021. 

The Czech circuit also becomes the eighth event that will feature all three classes - WorldSBK, WorldSSP, WorldSSp300, and is scheduled to take place on August 06-08. 

An Official statement from WorldSBK Organisers said: "The FIM, the Autodrom Most and Dorna WSBK Organization (DWO) are delighted to announce a new agreement that will see the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship race in Czech Republic from 2021. The five-year agreement means the Czech Round will be included in the WorldSBK Calendar until 2025 with the announcement made at a presentation in Prague on Thursday 29th of April.

"The Autodrom Most will host the Czech Round for the first time as it joins the WorldSBK calendar with the Czech circuit hosting the sixth Round of the 2021 season from the 6th to the 8th of August. All three classes as well as the Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup will compete at the Autodrom Most, which includes two Czech riders in WorldSSP300 with Petr Svoboda and Oliver König as well as the Jakub Smrz-run Accolade Smrz Racing team."

The Autodrom Most circuit was built between 1978 and 1983, and 2021 will be the first time hosting any two-wheel World Championship event. 

The news means an updated 13 round schedule is in place as it stands, however, one round that won’t be on the 2021 calendar is the traditional season opener Phillip Island. 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, The FIM, Phillip Island Circuit, and Dorna WSBK Organisation (DWO), have decided to forgo an Australian race this year, and instead focus on returning to the schedule next season. 

Speaking about the new Autodrom Most circuit and Phillip Island's current state of affairs, WorldSBK Executive Director, Gregorio Lavilla said: "We are thrilled to welcome the Autodrom Most to our calendar for the next five seasons. Today’s announcement that WorldSBK is set to return to the Czech Republic for the first time since 2018 reflects the continuing popularity of the Championship among the Czech fans. 

"With Czech teams and riders within the paddock, this is a great opportunity to showcase the Czech Republic on a world stage and I trust the Autodrom Most will be hosting exciting events in the future. 

"Regarding Australia, all parties involved decided that analysing the latest changes in all major motorsport events and with the current uncertainty related to the pandemic, the best solution was to move the event to our usual start-of-the-season date in 2022. We look forward to returning there next year with the Australian Round a key event of the Championship."
