Motorcycling Australia and management of the 2021 mi-bike Motorcycle Insurance Australian Superbike Championship, presented by Motul, have updated their 2021 season calendar.
Spanning the country and featuring major events, international competition and highly exciting 2+4 rounds, season 2021 is tipped to be the biggest yet.
The provisional seven-round calendar starts at Phillip Island, with the opening round dubbed the ‘Australian All Wheels Race Fest’ where the Superbikes will join the TCR Australia Series, VHT S5000 Australian Drivers’ Championship and the Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge Australia in a packed weekend programme.
ASBK remains in Victoria for Round 2 at Winton Motor Raceway, before heading north to Wakefield Park for Round 3 in April.
Following the mid-season break, racing resumes at Hidden Valley in June, where the Superbikes will join the Supercars for the first running of the “2+4” format in years. Also on the bill for that round are the Stadium Super Trucks and nitro drag racing.
Following Round 5 at Wakefield Park in August, ASBK goes to The Bend in South Australia, where the championship will share billing with the FIM Asia Road Racing Championship.
When the 2021 calendar was first announced, the seventh and final round was given a TBC date and location. Rumoured to be held alongside the Australian round of the World Superbike Championship at Phillip Island (which sits in an unconfirmed date in late November), the 2021 ASBK finale has now been confirmed for 4 to 7 November at Symmons Plains Raceway.
As with all other racing series, the calendar for this year’s mi-bike Motorcycle Insurance Australian Superbike Championship, presented by Motul, remains subject to COVID-19 developments.
