The Superbike World Championship is the world’s premier Superbike racing event, first held in 1988. With the 2022 Super Bike Championship details starting to take shape, the Roar has all the information you need to ensure you don’t miss a single race.

The 2022 Championship will be made up of 13 rounds, with each round consisting of two races and, as of 2019, a ten-lap ‘Superpole’ race. The results of the races are combined at the end of the series to determine the winners of the driver’s championship, and the manufacturer’s championship.

In 2022, Toprak Razgatlıoğlu (Yamaha) will be defending the title he won in 2021 when he picked up 11 race wins during the season. He will have plenty of pressure on his shoulders though as riders like six time champion Jonathan Rea (Kawasaki) and Scott Redding will be eager to be crowned champion come the end of round 13.

The bikes are tuned versions of motorcycles available to the public, different from the MotoGP which uses purpose-built machines. While the MotoGP is alike to Formula One, the Superbike World Championship is more akin to sports car racing.

Currently there are a couple of final points to pin down when it comes to the race schedule. Round 13 doesn’t have a location or date confirmed yet and the Australia Round – which takes place at the famous Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit – doesn’t have a date as of yet. As soon as these details are finalised, The Roar will update the schedule for you.
