Detailing the 2022 campaign from start to end, including all the major storylines and an in-depth look at the five manufacturers, the WorldSBK Yearbook is a must-have product

The official MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship annual is about to drop after one of the most exciting and engaging seasons since the championship began way back in 1988.Providing comprehensive coverage of the 12-round series, with all classes and major developments covered from first to last, the annual is a quality hardback publication, telling the story of the competitive year from unique perspectives inside the paddock. A peerless array of high-quality images, presented in a clear and contemporary layout, completes a package that is surely a must-have for any WorldSBK fan’s bookshelf or coffee table.

Round-by-round coverage and analysis forms the backbone of this quality product, with action and atmosphere photographs from each host venue helping to put you inside the story of each enthralling weekend. From the very first points scoring face-offs at MotorLand Aragon in Spain to the sometimes frantic flyaway rounds in Argentina, Indonesia - and a welcome return to Australia - the major incidents and inspirations come alive in words and pictures in a format that can be enjoyed forever in your own home.

As well as the rounds and races there are chapters explained each of the championship classes and the main competitors in each category of racing - WorldSBK, WorldSSP and WorldSSP300. The World Champions - Alvaro Bautista ( Racing Ducati), Dominique Aegerter (Ten Kate Racing Yamaha) and Alvaro Diaz (Arco Motor University Team) - all have sections dedicated to them and their hotly contested routes to ultimate 2022 glory.

As the foremost production derived FIM World Championship series in existence, WorldSBK’s machines are also the stars of the show. From your dealer’s showroom to your home to a WorldSBK pit-garage, the link between real world flagship models and winners’ circles all over the world is clear for all to see. Each competing manufacturer has its flagship model outlined and explained in the book, with high-quality action and studio photographs showing off their unique features and designs.

Ducati, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Honda and BMW feature in the WorldSBK ‘Fairings Off’ section, with Triumph and MV Agusta in the WorldSSP pages. KTM’s entry is the subject in the WorldSSP300 section. Pirelli, more than just a tyre supply partner for the championship, has its own section dedicated to explaining not just their continuing presence and technological development inside WorldSBK, but a celebration of their 150th anniversary as a company.

Whether reading the text or soaking in the finer details of the photographs, the book is a permanent reminder and reference for the discerning fan to have and to hold, as well as a joy to own in its own right.
