WSBK won’t replace South African round


When the World Superbike series announced the South African round was canceled, there was some debate as to whether or not it would be replaced. The answer is in – no.

According to their press release, World Superbike and World Supersport are working on a plan on how to compensate for the reduction in available points available after the cancellation. They’re also planning to re-arrange the award ceremony; the WSBK and WSS awards will be handed out the day after the final races in Qatar (Monday, Nov. 3). The other classes ( FIM STK 1000 Cup, European STK 600 Championship, European Junior Cup) will see their awards handed out on October 5, after the Magny-Cours round.

The remainder of the World Superbike schedule for 2014 is as follows:

Sep 07 – WSBK Jerez, Spain
Oct 05 – WSBK Magny-Cours, France
Nov 02 – WSBK Losail, Qatar
