PETALING JAYA: The Malaysia Superbike Championship (MSBK) will continue to blaze the track in the new normal.
This year’s rescheduled event will now take place at the Sepang International Circuit with Round 1 from Sept 25-27 and Round 2 from Oct 16-18.
The race was initially scheduled to run over four rounds but has now been shortened to two.
Sepang International Circuit chief executive officer Azhan Shafriman Hanif said the MSBK is a national agenda and continuing the race is vital for the sport in the country.
“SIC partnered with Two Wheels Motor Racing (TWMR) Sdn Bhd in 2019 with the objective to further enhance the MSBK race.
“The changes in the race this year is due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but it is a national agenda and we need to continue our much-awaited national championship this year,” said Azhan.
“Despite having two rounds this year, the format has been changed to add more thrill. Our objective is to provide a platform to groom and develop local riders.”
