The Argentina round of the 2023 WorldSBK Championship has been scrapped, meaning a late replacement for the season finale will need to be sought.

The event, held at the San Juan Villicum circuit, has been featured on the WorldSBK schedule since 2018 and represented the series’ trek to South America.

However, social political issues in the nation has prompted a decision to cancel this year’s event with a statement from Dorna and the FIM reading:


“This decision is due to the intense electoral calendar faced by the country, which has led to a complex situation affecting the daily lives of people, provinces, and businesses.

“Considering the proximity of upcoming national and provincial elections, Dorna WSBK Organization (DWO), Grupo OSD, and the San Juan government have chosen to suspend the event at the San Juan Villicum circuit.

“Furthermore, the round was scheduled on the eve of a government transition in the province, and it has been decided to wait and keep the schedule of events open for the new administration, showing respect for the political context and allowing proper planning for events of the magnitude of WorldSBK.”

This year’s visit to San Juan Villicum was due to represent the final round of the season for the first time, but its axing means a new venue for the 11th and final round of the season will need to be sought.
