Moscow Raceway Cleared to Host World Superbikes


20.07.2012

Russia’s first international-standard racetrack has received official approval to host the Superbike world championship next month, track officials have said, RIA Novosti reports.

The track opened last weekend with a round of the Renault World Series, but required approval from the FIM motorcycle federation before hosting its first motorbike racing.

“I think that the track is completely ready to host a stage of the Eni FIM Superbike World Championship,” FIM inspector Claude Danis said in comments on the track’s website Wednesday.

The first Russian world Superbike round will take place August 26.
