While the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship moves to Spain for a spectacular weekend of racing at MotorLand Aragon, the WorldSBK Warm Up Tour continues its European route, heading north for two non-stop weeks of WorldSBK entertainment.

The tour kicked off in Spain two weeks ago to huge fanfare. Fans in Barcelona, Madrid or Valencia flocked to the Warm Up Tour Truck to live the full WorldSBK experience, as they had the chance to win tickets for the Pirelli Aragon Round, where Xavi Fores (Barni Racing Team), Jordi Torres (MV Agusta Reparto Corse), Ana Carrasco (DS Junior Team), Maria Herrera (Yamaha MS Racing) and more of their heroes will be taking to the MotorLand Aragon track.

Now the tour heads to the Netherlands – with stops in Belgium and Germany – as fans warm up for an electric weekend of racing at TT Assen. Local hero Michael van der Mark (Pata Yamaha Official WorldSBK Team) was in his home town of Rotterdam yesterday to kick off the journey and get close to his passionate supporters.

The Belgian town of Ruddervoorde is the next stop of the tour, where the Warm Up Tour Truck will welcome its Flemish fans with games, prizes and an all-around unforgettable experience.

Next, the Warm Up Tour rides back north to the Netherlands plains, where fans in and around the towns of Bodegraven and then Nieuwleusen can get up and close to the WorldSBK fun. You won’t want to miss out on the chance to win tickets for the Assen Round, just one week away!

The tour will then make a quick detour to Emsbüren in Germany, where Jonathan Rea’s legendary, championship-winning Kawasaki ZX-10RR awaits for a once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity.

The Cathedral, TT Assen itself will host the tour next, just a few days before the riders arrive for one of the most exciting stops in the WorldSBK calendar. Our younger fans will get a chance to emulate their idols thanks to a special mini track, where they can race on official WorldSBK bicycles and test their skills before maybe becoming WorldSBK legends themselves.

The following week, the WorldSBK Warm Up Tour resumes at MotoPort Zelhem, as WorldSBK revs up for an unforgettable weekend of action.

Finally, Assen will host the last four stops of our Dutch journey. Fans will get a last chance to win tickets for the Dutch Round, as their heroes land in the lovely northern city in hot pursuit of the WorldSBK championship. 

TT Assen will hold Round Four of the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship from April 20th-22nd. To keep up with all the action, get your WorldSBK VideoPass.
