A provisional calendar for the 2022 season has been confirmed, subject to the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic

The 2022 MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship is taking shape with a provisional calendar in place ahead of the new season. Spanning four continents, WorldSBK’s calendar visits a variety of circuits, with a fresh feel ready to host the title fight until the very end of the season. 12 rounds will feature on the 2022 calendar as WorldSBK returns to Australia for the first time since 2020. A supported test will take place on the 4th and 5th of April at MotorLand Aragon, less than a week before racing commences at the venue.

Two of 2021’s new venues remain; Indonesia’s Pertamina Mandalika International Street Circuit and the Autodrom Most in the Czech Republic both made successful debuts in 2021 and will welcome more memories in 2022. All dates, events and spectator attendance are subject to the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent restrictions that derive from the corresponding governments and authorities.

Like 2021, the first nine rounds of the Championship take place across Europe; MotorLand Aragon starts the season for the second consecutive year from the 8th – 10th of April, before the TT Circuit Assen moved to round two from the 22nd – 24th of April for the Dutch Round. The Circuito Estoril hosts round three from the 20th – 22nd of May, whilst the Misano World Circuit “Marco Simoncelli” welcomes WorldSBK to Italy for round four from the 10th – 12th of June and the Emilia-Romagna Round. Donington Park follows next for the UK Round from the 15th – 17th of July, with WorldSBK and WorldSSP the two classes in attendance, the only European round without WorldSSP300.

Round six will come from the Autodrom Most from the 29th – 31st July for the Czech Round, before a summer break takes place. The French Round remains in the first third of September as the seventh round taking place across the 9th – 11th, followed two weeks later by the Catalunya Round at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, before the Portuguese Round two weeks after that at the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve from the 7th – 9th of October, which brings and end to the WorldSSP300 season.

The final three rounds of the Championship will take place outside of Europe with Argentina being the first at the Circuito San Juan Villicum from the 21st – 23rd of October, before the Indonesian Round at the Pertamina Mandalika International Street Circuit takes place. The Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit is on the provisional calendar on November 13th-20th, ending the season back-to-back with the Indonesian Round and closing the season for the first time since 1996. The non-European races will feature only WorldSBK and WorldSSP classes.
