WSBK - Imola will host the first Italian round of the season

 

The fifth round of the FIM Superbike World Championship, where the WSBK and WSSP Yamaha Teams are sponsored by BMC, will be going on stage at Imola’s Autodromo Enzo and Dino Ferrari, on this weekend. This is a track, which has been traditionally favourable to the Ducati riders, who will be trying their best in order to hold off the supremacy of the Kawasakis. Pirelli, on the occasion of the Italian round, will unveil a new Superpole tyre, which, until now, has only been tried by the riders during the official testing session in Motorland Aragón, and a new rear development solution in soft compound, which again has never been used by the riders except for the test session which took place at the beginning of April on the Spanish track.
