The Superbike opens to a select number of reporters, starting with the first post-lockdown round in Jerez scheduled from July 31st to August 2nd on the Spanish track.
Dorna, in agreement with the government authorities of various countries, has lightened Covid-19 restrictions for the derivatives championship, and who knows if this will also be a good sign the World Championship.
The two inaugural MotoGP weekends in Jerez will be officially closed to reporters (but open to TV broadcasters). However, starting with Brno on the second weekend in August, things could change, given the treatment reserved for the SBK. Of course, the World Championship certainly moves more people, but the hope of having correct, complete, and unfiltered information is there and should not be underestimated.
As far as the SBK is concerned, we had already received a sign in the past weeks when 15 reporters were given the go-ahead to participate in the Barcelona tests. We at GPone.com will be there with our Riccardo Guglielmetti and Andrea Rossi, and we'll let you in on everything live, minute by minute, starting at 9:00am, July 8th, with times, contents, and exclusive interviews directly from the pit lanes and the paddocks.
