World Supersport will move to a two-race format when the WorldSBK season gets going at Jerez in early August.

Both WorldSSP and WorldSSP300 will feature revised weekend schedules starting in Europe, composing of an additional race for each class on Saturday after their respective Tissot Superpole sessions have been completed.

WorldSSP300 Tissot Superpole will happen directly before the class’ Last Chance Race, while WorldSBK race one, WorldSSP race one and then WorldSSP300 race one will follow.

The overall event schedule changes mean that now, racing action will begin for all classes on Saturday, with full Championship points awarded in all races.

“Firstly, it is a great satisfaction that we can announce a safe return to racing for all three classes,” said boss Greg Lavilla.

“The history of both WorldSSP and WorldSSP300 enriches the atmosphere of the WorldSBK paddock, often providing some of the closest racing all season, as well as allowing the stars of the future to flourish on the world stage.

“2020 has provided its obstacles but thanks to the hard work, tenacity and determination of all parties involved, we will return to the world’s circuits with all three classes.

“We now look forward hugely to the recommencement of racing at Jerez, whilst welcoming back all corners of the racing paddock.”
