    Talking WSBK ready to lay rubber in India in 2013.

    WSBK ready to lay rubber in India in 2013.


    While the motoGP might still take some time to announce its much awaited arrival, WSBK's arrival to the BIC, Noida, India is announced well before its arrival sometime in 2013. Somebody's efforts have paid the fruits it seems... And personally speaking, it might as well result in increase in the sales of the CBU imported superbikes, as the public awareness level will be raised. Its definitely a kind of publicity, never mind an unintentional one or not.


    New Delhi: A year from now, the Hondas and the Ducatis will be scorching the Buddh International Circuit (BIC) with the Superbike World Championship (WSBK) getting ready to enter India.
    Formula One put India on the world motorsports map in October and last month came the announcement of the first ever GT1 race at the BIC in Greater Noida in December. WSBK had little choice but to follow suit.
    "We can expect the first World Superbike race to take place in 2013," Maurizio Flammini, president of Infront Motor Sports, told IANS in an online interview. Infront Motor Sports are the promoters of the WSBK, regulated by the World Motorcycle Federation FIM.

    The bikes used for the premier racing series will be the tuned versions of the Hondas, Kawasakis, Ducatis and Suzukis, which also make consumer vehicles.
    The WSBK has made a return to Asia after nine years by announcing Indonesia as one of the venues in 2013. The date for Indonesia has not been finalised while the India round is expected to take place early next year.
    "The race will most likely happen early next year. It would be decided after the final round of our meeting with the WSBK officials. We have held several meetings with them and they are looking forward to coming to India," an official from Jaypee Group, the owners of BIC, told IANS.
    Flammini said it was crucial for the WSBK to add India, Indonesia and Australia to the calendar and described it as a great thing to happen for the championship.



    "In the Asia-Oceania area, with Australia and Indonesia joining the fold, we are very keen on adding India to the calendar. Now, we cover almost the entire region. We are always interested in expanding the calendar, but we do not increase the workload of the teams. Three races in such important nations, including the two most important Asian markets, are a great achievement for our championship," he said. Flammini said the success of the inaugural F1 race attracted them towards India.

    "The organisers (Jaypee Group) did a great job in making the inaugural F1 race a thundering success. Two factors influenced our decision. First the F1 success and then the way the race was organised. I am sure it will attract other important international motorsport series to India."
    Moto GP series, equivalent of F1 in bike racing, could be the next to come to India. The WSBK completed 25 years in 2012, the season opener being in Phillip Island near Melbourne last month.
    Each round has two races and a driver and a manufacturer is crowned world champion at the end of the season. Spain's Carlos Checa was the drivers champion in 2011 while his Ducati team bagged the manufacturers' title.

    MODS NOTE: There was a thread for this, but it had a different title than the news presented here. It was more about MotoGP & WSBK in 2012 which didn't happen. You can merge or not, as per your discretion.

    great news,good for indian economy and entertainment.
    and the question remains why do i race?
    every finishing line is the begining of a new race.

    #i have learnt to manipulate my own adrenaline and the perception of biking is different.
    #overkill is underrated.
    #how random roads may appear there is always a destination.[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]
    #i don't subscribe to co-incidence,either it is the rider or the other moron on the road

    (:)people keeps on saying add spark to life, bajaj got hold of that idea and added an extra spark to bike.

    Wow... WSBK is my fav race and the sound of the WSBK bikes simply are the best.. When it comes to race thrill, lots of manufacturers, heavily modified prod bikes.. no one comes close to WSBK... Amazing news...
