Founded in 1988, the Superbike World Championship (also known as SBK, World Superbike, WSB, or WSBK) is the worldwide Superbike racing Championship regulated by the FIM, the international governing body of motorcycle racing, and managed and promoted by FGSport.
Qatar first hosted a WorldSBK race in 2005.
The motorcycles that race in the championship are tuned versions of motorcycles available for sale to the public, by contrast with Moto GP where purpose built machines are used.
MotoGP is the motorcycle world’s equivalent of Formula One, whereas Superbike racing is similar to touring car racing.
The organisers estimated a total of 6000 visitors during the weekend of this event in comparison to 3000 people who attended the latest race held at Losail international Track this year.
Alfardan Motorcycles display space was the largest among competitors.
Current SBK motorcycle manufacturers: Aprilia, BMW Motorrad, Yamaha, Bimota, Ducati, Honda, MV Agusta, Suzuki
