Austrian broadcaster ServusTV will continue to cover the FIM World Superbike championship for a further two seasons with the addition of former WorldSBK and Moto2 rider Sandro Cortese as a commentator. 

A statement from WorldSBK Dorna Officials said: "Dorna WSBK Organization (DWO) and ServusTV are thrilled to announce a two-year contract extension for the Austrian broadcaster to continue broadcasting the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship in Austria, Germany and Switzerland.

"ServusTV will broadcast live all WorldSBK Superpole sessions and Races for two additional seasons, while fans will be able to catch up with WorldSSP and WorldSSP300 through ServusTV’s new online platform:

"The ServusTV team will benefit from the expertise of 2018 World Supersport Champion Sandro Cortese as he joins the ServusTV crew as one of the experts commentating on the Championship, alongside fellow expert Stefan Nebel and lead commentator Philipp Krummholz." 

Germany in particular has been well represented throughout the years in WorldSBK and former MotoGP rider Jonas Folger is the latest in 2021. 

Folger will be competing on the new BMW M 1000 RR package for Bonovo MGM Racing, while another former Grand Prix paddock rider Phillip Oettl will be on the Kawasaki Puccetti Racing bike in WordSSP. 

Switzerland will feature heavily in the World Supersport class too as 2019 champion Randy Krummenacher returns to the series, while MotoE rider Dominique Aegerter makes his debut in the championship with Yamaha. 

Speaking about the extended deal, Managing Director of TV and Media Area, Dorna Sports, Manuel Arroyo added: "We are happy to extend the partnership with ServusTV for two more years. This contract extension is great news for the Austrian, German and Swiss motorsport fans who will enjoy bespoke coverage of the Championship. With German, Austrian and Swiss riders competing in the Championship, we are proud that WorldSBK will keep growing in this area."
