FIM Superbike World Championship TicketsEvery year, fans of motorsports look forward to the penultimate in Superbike racing, the FIM Superbike World Championship series, also known as the WorldSBK. These machines are not merely souped-up versions of production bikes. They are finely tuned "superbikes" that boast unparalleled power and speed while retaining street-legal status. The WorldSBK is comprised of a series of rounds that take place at specified racing facilities, each of which hosts one round of the championship circuit. For the 2020 season, Australia launches the WorldSBK series at the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit, a world-class racetrack in the state of Victoria. This marks a record 30th round to be held at this 4.445-kilometer circuit that sweeps around Bass Strait and is always a highly anticipated beginning run at one of the most exhilarating and beautiful courses in the series.
