BSB: 2019 calendar confirmed

1 of 1

The 2019 Bennetts British Superbike Championship calendar has today (Monday) been finalised following approval by its governing body, the MCRCB.

The Championship will return to Silverstone at Easter (April 19-21) for the much-anticipated opening round of the 2019 season, which next year will comprise an additional triple-header round  at Donington Park (May 24-26) as the National circuit rejoins the calendar, increasing the races in the Main Season to 20.

The remaining triple-header rounds will remain unchanged with the final round of the Main Season at Oulton Park to decide the Title Fighters for the Showdown. The last triple-header of the championship will continue be the season finale at Brands Hatch that will decide the 2019 champion.

The Snetterton round of the season will also move one week from the provisionally published date and will now be held on July 19-21 for the annual date at the Norfolk circuit.
