What’s Changed?

In:

  • Automotodrom Brno, Czechia;
  • Autodromo El Villicum, Argentina;

Out:

  • EuroSpeedway Lauzitz, Germany;
  • Jerez, Spain;

Two changes of venue for 2018. Brno returns to the calendar after a 6 year break, the other addition is a brand new track in the San Juan province of Argentina.

Losing out are Lausitz – which for a while was thought to be losing all racing after a change of ownership but thankfully not – and perhaps surprisingly Jerez is out as well.

There are also a number of date changes. The gap between opening rounds moves from 2 weeks to 4 weeks. In turn, round 3 is pushed back 2 weeks.

Laguna Seca and Misano switch places.

These changes create a massive 10 week summer break between Misano (8 July) and Portimao (16 September)!

The middle of the schedule and the last four rounds are on alternate weeks.

  1. Pat,

    Including separate categories is, in my opinion, unecessary. The events are well documented on the WSB website via pdf download. A reminder of the venue and date is sufficient, any more represents additional work for you with little benefit to subscribers. MotoGP and BSB are much the same in that respect.

    As ever, obliged for your hard work. You deserve a medal, but perhaps a PayPal donate button on your site (if not already included) would prove positive from all we lazy get’s. 😁

    I’ll check for the button this year!

  2. Good feedback, thanks. I try to do them for some supports which don’t travel to all the rounds, but you have to draw the line somewhere. I imagine anyone watching SSP is already a SBK fan!

    Thanks for the donation – and to all who have chipped in!
