#StayAtHome, WorldSBK has everything you need!2020-03-20 11:24
New video and interview content to be available on worldsbk.com as the Championship backs the #StayAtHome campaign
With the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus impacting people across the world, the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship has joined the #StayAtHome campaign. The campaign aims to raise awareness of ‘social distancing’ in order to help stop the spread of Covid-19, helping people to not be impacted by the virus.
The sporting community is just one of many communities that has been impacted by the coronavirus outbreak and the WorldSBK paddock have already given their reactions to the current situation. Riders have shown support for following authorities’ advice, with five-time Champion Jonathan Rea (Kawasaki Racing Team WorldSBK) saying: “This time is difficult for everyone but the seriousness of Covid-19 is bigger than our sport so we must stand together following the authorities' advice.”
Rea’s Kawasaki teammate and Championship leader Alex Lowes added: “Let’s all come together in these difficult times to stick to the guidelines and try to gain control of this situation! So, let’s look forward to that and keep safe in the meantime!”
During this period, WorldSBK will be offering different content from classic races to interviews with riders. The first volume of our Essential WorldSBK Races was released on Monday and this is just some of the great content on offer. Throughout this week, we will have interviews with Alex Lowes (Kawasaki Racing Team WorldSBK) and Spanish rider Alvaro Bautista (Team HRC), and an in-depth talk with three-time WorldSBK Champion Troy Bayliss.
As well as this, each weekend during the enforced break a FULL ROUND of WorldSBK action will be made available for free. Including all practice sessions and races, this will allow fans to view the action as if it was a race weekend and schedule it however they want. This will be available from each Friday until the following Monday. There will also be exclusive videos with the world's reaction to Phillip Island racing, featuring commentary from a variety of broadcasters.
Keep an eye on WorldSBK.com and social channels (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram) for more exciting content! You will be able to see what the WorldSBK community is doing while they are staying at home with social posts below.
