Provisional 2013 WSB calendar unveiled

The 15 round 2013 WSB calendar is set to be confirmed on Friday, but below is a sneak preview of what it might look like. For over five years WSB bosses have been aiming to grow the series to 15 rounds and in 2013 they look like they have achieved their goal with races in America, Australia, India and Russia. But...

it's the politics of the factory teams that prevents 'Moto 1' being fully introduced.  without the self-interests of (particularly) Honda, Yamaha and (less so) Ducati, a big engined version of Moto 2 would be a certainty.

what we can look forward to in WSBK is (i reckon) a restriction on the number of engines per season, stock ECU and a return to something that is more akin to racing production-based bikes, not the pseudo MotoGP machinery we have at the moment.  Dorna won't allow WSBK to be faster than the CRT bikes, so yes, big changes ahead, but no merger of the series, thank goodness.

Spanish takeover

I see Jerez is added as the last race of the year. We now have two races in Spain so watch this space and see if it doesn't go like Moto GP with 4 races in Spain. If you look at the calendar for MotoGP there is only one race in Spain,(Jerez), the others are Catalunya, Aragon and Valencia. Don't you think it is a bit much for a World Championship series? Why not spread the sport? South America, South Africa?
