World Superbike Takes Summer Break

Superbike News

With the teams and riders taking a well-earned summer break to recharge their batteries, of course the entire World SBK show also follows the trend and as a result will be shutting down for the next couple of weeks.

When WSBK racing resumes in September three more rounds in Germany, Italy and France remain to wrap up the other three championship titles still to be decided.

In World Superbike, the battle will be between Max Biaggi (Aprilia Alitalia) and Leon Haslam (Suzuki Alstare), while Kenan Sofuoglu (Hannspree Ten Kate Honda) and Eugene Laverty (Parkalgar Honda) are now the only two realistic contenders for the Supersport crown.

Ayrton Badovini (BMW Motorrad Italia STK) has already wrapped up the Superstock 1000 FIM Cup, but European Superstock 600 honors are still to be played out in an all-French tussle, between youngsters Jeremy Guarnoni (MRS Racing Yamaha) and Florian Marino (Ten Kate Race Junior Honda).

So get ready in a short while for the final three exciting rounds of these championships and enjoy the summer holidays.

The World Superbike racing action returns on September from the 3rd through the 5th at the world-renowned Nurburgring in Germany.

Next the World SBK series will head to Imola in Italy on the weekend of September 24th to 26th.

The last and final motorcycle racing round of 2010 will take place on October 1st to 3rd at Magny Cours in France before the even longer (and more painful for enthusiastic fans) winter break.
