WSBK may come to RussiaThe World Superbike (WSBK) racing championship is becoming more Europe-oriented.
The WSBK 2011 calendar still has two rounds to go, and both of them will be held far from Europe and require long trips â€“ one to Australiaâ€™s Phillip Island and the other to the U.S. track at Miller Motorsports Park.
According to unofficial data, Russia is being considered as a possible location for one of the championshipâ€™s rounds.
Admittedly, however, there is not a single track in Russia at the moment that could be used for such events. But there is one that is just about ready.
A new track in Sochi is expected to be completed by 2014, and the worldâ€™s most prestigious car racing competition â€“ Formula 1 â€“ is set to take place there that same year. As luck would have it, that track may be just the right place to hold the WSBK championship in Russia.
There have been no official reports on any talks on the matter, however.
