WSBK News: Provisional Calendar For 2013

The provisional calendar for World Superbikes has been released. Unsurprisingly, Miller Motorsports is no longer present, being replaced outright by Laguna Seca. Portimao is still on the calendar, but is now subject to contract, meaning they need to show they can hold a race without going broke first.

The first two months hold a single race each, in Australia then India, and the European leg starts in April. 

Supersport misses out on racing at Laguna Seca, while the Superstock cup doesn't run in Philip Island, Buddh, Donington, Moscow Raceway or Laguna Seca. 

Both Brno and Misano are missing from the list, but there is an unannounced track on June 23rd. With Imola following a week later on the 30th, a return to Brno seems marginally more likely.

Is Brno the possible TBA or do they consider Brno and Moscow to be too close together?

I would love to be there but I would prefer to see WSS instead of AMA/DMG crap support classes.

Laguna doesnt make any sense unless AMA is racing as well, if AMA is racing in September than the MotoGP Race should be able to take Moto2/3. Just having WSBK at Laguna is going to be a pretty sparse race with a ton of down time....
