Russian WSBK round cancelled
Yakhnich Motorsport Team will no longer participate in WSS
Russian WSBK round back in 2012
DORNA and the FIM have released a statement revealing the Russian World Superbike round is now cancelled for the second year running.
The Russian WSBK round at Moscow Raceway was due to take place on July 5th, however this has now been cancelled and will not be replaced due to inadequate contract agreements.
Dorna and the FIM's statement read: "The Russian event promoter, YMS Promotion, has not provided the required contract guarantees defined by DWO to confirm and implement the event organisation."
Consequently, the Moscow Region Yakhnich Motorsport Team will no longer participate in the World Supersport Championship in 2015.
Last year saw the cancellation of this very round, but this was due to the political climate in Russia at the time not contractual issues.
The Moscow Raceway joined the WSBK calendar in 2012 and the following year saw the death of Andrea Antonelli during the World Supersport race which was held in poor weather conditions.
The 2015 World Superbike calendar now only consists of 13 confirmed rounds.
