Ladies and gentlemen, the prestigious World Superbike Championship is finally making its way to Indian shores.
Jaypee Sports International Limited (JPSI) and Infront Motor Sports have inked down an agreement to hold the WSBK championship rounds on the 9th and 10th of March.
The WSBK championship, founded in 1988, consists of a series of rounds which are held on permanent racing facilities and each round had two races and the results of each race were combined to determine two annual winners, one for the riders and the other for the manufacturers. Almost all the renowned superbike makers such as Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki, Ducati, Aprilia, and BMW take part in the World Superbike Championship which is regulated by the FIM (Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme).
JPSI MD and CEO, Mr Sameer Gaur has stated that they are extremely happy to announce the World Superbike Championship at the BIC. The WSBK is specially significant for manufacturers and customers because it uses highly modified production superbikes, thus differentiating it from the multimillion one-off prototype machines in MotoGP. The event it will be a treat for the eyes of Indian motorsport enthusiasts who had thoroughly enjoyed the F1 Indian Grand Prix last year at the Buddh International Circuit.
