Silverstone and Istanbul Rounds Confirmed for 2013 WSBK, Brno Round Dropped

There have been a lot of rumors related to the 2013 WSBK provisional calendar, some of them hinting to Silverstone, UK no longer being considered as a valid option. However, things cleared out: the Silverstone race will be held on August the 4th, with Superbike, Supersport and Superstock 1000 and 600 classes.

The WSBK will use the old pits, just like MotoGP, instead of the all-new Wing complex, and that is because the new one is a bot too small for 4 classes and offers poorer visibility from the grandstands.

The Brno race in the Czech Republic was however replaced with the Istanbul Park Circuit in Turkey. Brno officials refused to pay the fees Dorna required, so the race was moved to the South. Initally TBA for 23rd of June, the Istanbul race will be held on September the 15th, between Germany's Nurburgring and US' Laguna Seca.
