SBK, BREAKING NEWS: Oschersleben round canceled

Return to Germany postponed until next year. Jerez could be added instead of the German round, but the Spanish government still has to reach a decision.


The news had been around for several days, but it's now official. The Superbike will have to wait at least another year before returning to Germany, since the Oschersleben round has been officially canceled. Over the past few weeks, Dorna has sought a solution to the problem along with the German government, but the latest government provisions and the continuation of the emergency have led to canceling the event that was scheduled (in the latest calendar drawn up) July 31st to August 2nd.

The weekend in question, however, could still be action-packed, with a change of country. In fact, the other news today is what Dorna, the Andalusian government, and the Municipality of Jerez proposed, in an attempt to dispute the round on the circuit dedicated to Angel Nieto over the weekend, after the Oschersleben was cancelled.

So Jerez will no longer be the second to last stage of the calendar, but the second of the "Recovery", abandoning the cold October climate and embracing the scorching summer one. The ball is in the court (as it is for the MotoGP) of the Spanish government that, in the next few days, will accept or reject the project.
