Dorna bosses have agreed a minimum target of seven WorldSBK events in 2020 and will likely enforce the same rules that are to be applied in MotoGP.

Head cheese Carmelo Ezpeleta is set to limit the number of staff attending MotoGP events to a third of the usual, and believes it is prudent to do the same in Superbike.

In WorldSBK, we already have one round in Australia, and then we are looking to have minimum of six to seven more,” said the ringmaster.

“This is what we are considering but it also depends on the situation, because the medical protocols must be the same as MotoGP more or less.

“We are studying together with WorldSBK what the best calendar is. But of course, we will try; it’s a priority for us also to have WorldSBK races.

“Many of the circuits we’ll go to will organise one or two races of MotoGP and then one round of WorldSBK. We are managing that. There are some circuits that don’t host both but of course, our priority is to have WorldSBK and for sure, to have a minimum number of rounds.”

WorldSBK is still hopeful that Donington Park will host the second round as tickets are still on sale but given the fact the UK has the highest number of Covid19 deaths in Europe, that is highly unlikely.
