2016 Imola World Superbike Race One Results: Fewer Riders, Fewer Laps

Sylvain Guintoli, after a concussion and broken ankle in Superpole, would not race this weekend. Dominic Schmitter and Peter Sebestyen had a coming together at the same place on Acque Minerali that meant neither would start the race and would delay the start.

The 2016 World Superbike calendar will have just thirteen rounds. Attempts at finding a replacement for the canceled Monza round have failed, causing the calendar to definitively lose a round.
