World Superbike Schedule | 2016 Calendar
2016 World SBK Calendar

The FIM has released the provisional 2016 World Superbike Schedule, which will feature 14 rounds. The last time 14 rounds were on the schedule was in 2013 when Kawasaki Racing Team’s Tom Sykes earned his only SBK title.

The 2016 SBK Schedule features all rounds that were included in 2015, but returns to Germany in September for round 11 at Lausitzring. The 2016 WSBK season will also have a new regulation – all World Supersport rounds will be featured at all World SBK rounds. Also, the FIM Superstock 1000 CUP (STK1000) will race alongside WSBK in all European races.

During the 2015 World Superbike Championship, one rider dominated – Kawasaki Racing Team’s Jonathan Rea. The Northern Irishman piloted his ZX-10R Ninja to 12 of 26 race wins, and only finished off the podium three times.
