Circuito de Navarra
For the BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team, the FIM Superbike World Championship presents a first for the second time in two weeks. After the debut of ‘Autodrom Most’ (CZE) on the calendar, now ‘Circuito de Navarra’ in northern Spain will host the WorldSBK for the first time. This coming weekend (20th to 22nd August), the seventh round of the 2021 season will be held at the track. The BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team had the opportunity to familiarise itself with the new track back in June, when the squad participated in a test at the track with riders Tom Sykes (GBR) and Michael van der Mark (NED) and their BMW M 1000 RR Superbikes.
The ‘Circuito de Navarra’ is located near Los Arcos in the regional community of Navarra, around 60 kilometres southwest of Pamplona. The modern racetrack, just under 4 kilometres in length, was opened in June 2010. Since then, various car and motorcycle championships have held events at the track, including the Spanish Superbike Championship ESBK.
