WorldSBK cancels Argentina round

Season finale in October will be replaced with new venue.

World Superbike Championship (WorldSBK) has cancelled its 2023 season finale in Argentina.

Confirmed:

  • Decision taken due to ‘intense electoral calendar faced by the country’

Context: With the close proximity of upcoming national and provincial elections, Dorna Sports, series promoter of WorldSBK, took the decision to suspend the event at the San Juan Villicum circuit. The round was also scheduled on the eve of a government transition in the province.

Comment: A WorldSBK statement said: ‘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.’

Coming next: The next round of the WorldSBK season takes place this weekend in Czech Republic from 28th to 30th July.
