Rounds two and three of the 2020 British Superbike Championship, due to be held at Oulton Park and Donington Park, have been postponed. 

The news comes following the MCRCB and the ACU's decision to suspend all motorcycle circuit racing events until at least May 31. Their decision was made following the updated government measures, announced on March 23, to try and suppress the spread of coronavirus and help the NHS as much as possible.

The Oulton Park round was originally due to take place on May 1-3, with Donington Park scheduled for May 22-24. At this time, no replacement dates have been released. With the pandemic changing on a daily basis and numbers still rising, it’s hard to predict when the BSB will be able to begin.

"Series promoter and organiser MSVR is continuing to work closely with teams, circuits, broadcasters and partners to evaluate the constantly-changing situation and will provide further updates when available," the official statement reads. 

Round one at Silverstone had already been postponed, whilst several other championships around the world have also been delayed because of the outbreak. The Isle of Man TT has been cancelled, whilst the North West 200 has been postponed with no future date as of yet.
