South Africa appears on the provisional calendar for the 2014 eni FIM World Superbike Championship with a round scheduled to be held at Phakisa Freeway in the Free State, on October 19.

“We have signed a Terms of Contract short-form agreement with Dorna, the WSBK Promoters, and will enter into a long-form agreement subject to certain conditions being met - said Anthony Lauter of GAS Sports, who are organisers of this event. “We still need to secure the necessary financial guarantees required by Dorna and the Phakisa Freeway must first pass an FIM circuit inspection. We’re confident we will meet these conditions. The race weekend programme will also include World Supersport series and several top South African riders can be expected to be seen in action.”

Adrian Scholtz, CEO, Operations, Motorsport South Africa: “MSA warmly welcomes the news that the FIM World Superbike Championship could be returning to South African shores in 2014 and extends its congratulations and appreciation to the promoter, GAS Sports. It has been a few years since world championship motorsport was last seen on a South African race circuit and the event will be a welcome shot in the arm for local motorsport."

Javier Alonso, WSBK Executive Director: “We are delighted to come back to South Africa at Phakisa Freeway where we had very good experiences in the past. We are therefore confident about the succes of the event bearing in mind the existing culture and passion for motorcycling in South Africa. We are planning to visit the Circuit in the following days together with the FIM representatives in order to move forward with the homologation, contractual and event preparation procedures.”
