The 2021 Bennetts British Superbike calendar has been revised with a slightly later start date to allow maximum fan attendance as the season gets underway.
Series organisers MSVR have pushed the opening round of the championship back to beyond the 21st June date set out by the government as a point at which it is hoped most legal restrictions on mass gatherings will end, meaning the first round is now set to take place at Oulton Park between 25-27 June, some three weeks later than initially planned.
Consequently, the rounds set to take place at Snetterton and Thruxton in early June have been re-scheduled to allow the full 11 round series to remain intact.
In line with the changes to the calendar, the new-for-2021 home testing schedule has been amended slightly with bikes now due back on track for the first time at the end of April at Silverstone.
The McAMS Yamaha team remain full steam ahead in preparing for the new season, seeking to etch further performance from the YZF-R1 after their best season yet saw Jason O’Halloran finish runner-up in 2020.
