Donington and Assen’s WorldSBK rounds have been postponed due to coronavirus restrictions as plans are laid for races behind closed doors.

Jerez should welcome the restart of the season on the 31st July – 2nd August, before going to the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve in Portugal a week later on the 7th – 9th August.

The season should then follow the current provisional schedule, at the MotorLand Aragon venue on 28th – 30th.

The health of everybody is at the forefront of decision making and these rounds within the Iberian Peninsula are planned to be held behind closed doors, in-line with social distancing measures and medical guidelines set by the Spanish and Portuguese governments.

“We are very positive about the future, as all the signs are pointing in a good direction to start in Jerez,” said sporting director Greg Lavilla.

“We are looking at all possible scenarios for all three classes to race, although we continue to work hard on finding the optimum scenario for all parties.

“A lot will depend on the measures that various governments will implement. As for Donington Park and Assen, we are working with the circuits and governments to establish the best possible outcome for all, with the intention to hold those rounds towards the end of the 2020 season.”
