World Superbikes

Following the opening round of the season at Phillip Island in Australia, the FIM Superbike World  Championship arrives in Italy for its first appearance on European soil at Imola, one of the most spectacular circuits on the calendar. For the production-based racing series it is also the first of three rounds to be held in Italy this year: Monza on 6 May and Misano on 10 June are the other two.  With two Italians in the top two slots, the massive partisan crowd expected at Imola will surely witness a memorable weekend of racing.
