WorldSBK 2019

Was watching practice earlier and the announcers said there will be no superstock 1000 class next year in WorldSBK, WTF!?

World Superbike cuts Superstock 1000 class from 2019


WSBK
Haydn Cobb
27 Sep 2018

FIM and World Superbike championship organisers Dorna have confirmed the European Superstock 1000 class will be cut from the series at the end of this year. 2018 will mark the 19th and final season for the class as part of the World Superbike championship having produced 17 different champions with six different manufacturers taking a title.

In a statement released on the WorldSBK website, the reason behind the decision is ‘looking to the future will bring more value to national STK championships around Europe’. As a result, the European Superstock 1000 will conclude this weekend at Magny-Cours with a title-decider between Markus Reiterberger who holds an 18-point lead over Roberto Tamburini, with Max Scheib one point further back in third place.

“We are very grateful to all participants in this class over the years, and after working with Dorna for so long, we know the development of the sport will not stand still,” Martin de Graaf, FIM Europe 1st Deputy President, said. “In many countries the STK classes are important for Regional and National Championships, and this will continue.”

Daniel Carrera, WorldSBK Executive Director, says the series will focus on the Superbike, Supersport 600 and Supersport 300 championships, with the latter debuting in 2017. “We want to thank all our teams and riders for their commitment and effort throughout the seasons,” Carrera said. “STK1000 has provided some sensational racing action over the years, but now are looking ahead to the future. We now want to focus on the promotion and expansion of our three main categories.”

Rumours have heightened this year around increasing the number of races per round in the three main classes, which will fill in the schedule hole set to be produced with the cancellation of the Superstock 1000 class, while the Donington Park and Portimao rounds had been set to run three Superbike races this year.

wow. No wonder BMW canceled the RCK3 / HP power kit enable support for the S1000RR. A good source I have into the 2019 is that ignition DTC cut is part of the coding release for the new 2019. Trackday / Racers will be buying up those 15-18 bikes and looking for people like me that can enable the RCK3 / HP power kit enables. I still do not see the 2019 being the best it can be stock for the race track even with DTC ignition cut.

I was always under the impression that ignition cut can never be made street legal due to all the potential unburnt fuel destroying catalytic converters and messing with emissions.

Ignition retard... maybe, cut.... I don't think so.

Time will tell.

Sadly I don't understand why this is an issue. Isn't the DTC ignition cut part of the V2018 race mapping? I'm loving mine on a 2014 HP4.

I have no idea what this has to do with Super Stock 1000 class being dropped.

What does this have to do with street riders? Wouldn't they just go full exhaust as they always have?

More explanation please.

They should just cancel the whole thing or at least rename it the Kawasaki cup. WSBK isn’t even worth watching anymore. At least the sub classes were providing some decent racing.

In the 300's the last lap of the last race decided the championship, to a female. Great rider, hope she does well in higher classes

Rea dominating. Will be interesting to see who gets 2nd and 3rd places. Yamaha is doing better looks like. Too early to tell for BMW and Ducati.
