Where can I watch World Superbike races live this year?

As well as subscription and free-to-view TV programming detailed below, you can watch every test session, timed practice, qualifying and race session on the WSBK video pass. Keep an eye out for discount deals, especially when bundled with Amazon Prime deals.

 

What TV channels will World Superbikes be on this year?

TV coverage will vary from race to race, but generally, live coverage will be shown on Eurosport, who have now secured TV rights until 2025. Highlights coverage is yet to be agreed, but is expected to be secured by ITV and shown on the ITV4 channel as per the 2021 season.

We'll update this page with all the TV schedules for each round, so keep coming back to make sure you don't miss any of the action.

ITV4 is available on Channels 25 and 60 (+1) on Freeview, Channels 118 (SD), 175 (+1) and 178 (HD) on Virgin Media, Channel 132 on Virgin Media Ireland, Channel 117 and 118 (+1) on Freesat, and Channels 120 (HD), 220 (+1) and 818 (SD) on Sky. It's also available streaming via the ITV Hub (UK only).

 

What's new for 2022?

The winter break is the traditional time for the powers-that-be to gather heads and review the rule book for the coming race season. For the 2022 season, only minor tweaks have been made to the rule book - most of which won't be apparent to casual observer (changes to the appeals process for example) - but a couple may show up during the course of the year:

  • Restarted Superpole races must run for a minimum of 8 laps (previously 5 laps);
  • protests, appeals and decisions may now be displayed on timing screens and shall be considered official (previously, these had to be displayed on official communications boards);
  • riders taken to the Medical Centre will now have their crash helmets inspected and (if the rider has loss of consciousness, concussion or other head injury), the helmet may be subjected to further inspection.

With a further meeting yet to be held to agree technical and homologation rule changes, we'll keep this page updated with any other changes as, and when, they happen.
