WorldSBK boss Lavilla planning 'three brand new tracks' for 2021

WorldSBK boss Greg Lavilla has revealed he is planning for a 11-13-round season in 2021 with ten rounds in Europe and the remainder as flyaways with three tracks new to the series

The ex-racer won’t say which circuits they are but he did confirm that Phillip Island will be at the end of next season instead of its usual opening slot in February.

“Regarding the calendar and having analysed the situation carefully and thoroughly, the 2021 schedule will be subject to the COVID-19 situation,” said Lavilla.


“We need to plan the non-European races a bit further in advance in order to send the correct materials, arrange the cargo planes and in general, for all rounds, with the pandemic and also the economic situations, it is not easy for some organisations to make instant decisions.

“The target however is to have between 11 and 13 rounds in total, with nine to ten in Europe and two or three non-European.

“What I can say is that we are working on having three brand new circuits that WorldSBK has never seen before, but I can’t say where at the moment.

“In Australia, the event will take place at the end of the year in order to analyse the situation by that time; for sure now, it’d be very risky to decide and commit to being there in February.

“We will put all of our European events first, starting in April until the first week of October and from that point, if the situation is good in Argentina, Australia and a race in the Middle East that we are working on, then they will go ahead.

“I think by July or August, we will know as we need to wait until nearer the time.”
