Mandalika International Street Circuit is set for inaugural WorldSBK action in 2021 as Indonesia is green lit for November’s final round.
For the first time since 1997, WorldSBK will be back in Indonesia with the final round of the 2021 MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship set to take place in November, at the all-new Mandalika International Street Circuit, located on the scenic Lombok Island.
The WorldSBK Indonesian Round will take place on the weekend of November 19th-21st for what promises to be a stunning curtain closing event to the 2021 season.
Indonesia previously hosted WorldSBK racing from 1994 to 1997 and the long-awaited return of the series to the South East Asian nation comes on the back of three years of efforts undertaken during the challenge of recent events.
The date for the Indonesian Round has been pushed back by a week due to logistical and organisational considerations. This will allow the venue to first host the Idemitsu Asia Talent Cup on November 12th-14th, a competition managed by Dorna Group, thus providing valuable experience at the circuit in the first of back-to-back events for the Cup and also avoiding an overlap with the coverage of the MotoGP season-finale in Valencia the same weekend.
