Jerez has been confirmed as the penultimate round of this year’s Superbike World Championship as the FIM release the finalised calendar for 2017.
It was well rumoured that the Andalusian circuit would take on the round marked ‘To be announced’ on the provisional calendar, but the circuit finally confirmed they would host the event in a post on their website last month.
Instead of the date originally on the calendar, the round will now take place between 20th-22nd October instead of the week before.
The 2017 season kicks off in Australia in a couple of weeks, before moving on to Thailand two weeks later ahead of the European season getting underway at Aragon at the beginning of April.
Three official test dates have also been confirmed, with the traditional pre-season test taking place at Phillip Island between 20th-21st February. Two further tests will take place at Aragon on 3rd April and Portimao on 18th September.
