world_superbike_calendar In just a few short months, the World Superbike series will start up again for the 2011 season. The FIM has just released an updated version of the schedule, which now includes Donington and Imola.

The World Superbike will follow the same format in 2011 that it did in 2010. There will be 13 rounds, and each round will feature two races.

The 2011 World Superbike season will kick of at Phillip Island in Australia this year, and will finish at Portimao in Portugal. The WSBK will make one stateside appearance over Memorial Day weekend at Miller Motorsport Park, where it will share the track with the AMA Superbike series.

In 2011, the WSBK will race for the first time at Motorland Aragon track in Spain. The second round of the series will also be significant as the WSBK heads to Donington. Donington was the venue for the first World Superbike race in 1988.
