2015 Chang Thailand World Superbike Friday Roundup: New Track Is Hot

World Superbike added a new circuit for 2015, the Chang Circuit in Buriram, Thailand. The track was designed by Herman Tilke for a wealthy Thai businessman, and former politician, Newin Chidchob who wants to bring Formula One to the country. The track is next to New I-Mobile Stadium, known as Thunder Castle, the stadium for the football team Buriram United, also owned by Chidchob. His aim is to make Buriram the destination in Thailand for sport, as it doesn't have the beaches or mountains that other tourism regions have.

The circuit is 4.554km long and has a 1km straight after the first turn, with a shorter straight to bring the riders back to the very physical infield, and then presents them with a series of turns that eventually bring them back to the start/finish straight. There are twelve turns, seven right, five left, and the track is very flat and wide, ideal for open-wheel cars and very safe for motorbikes, with very little elevation change and large run-offs.

The Racing Week On Wednesday - News Round Up For The Week Of 4th March

After the burst of activity leading up to last week, things have once again calmed down in the world of international motorcycle racing. Neither MotoGP nor World Superbikes are testing – though BSB are preparing for their season by testing in Spain – and as a consequence, news is thin on the ground. But not completely absent, so here is our weekly round up of what is happening in MotoGP and WSBK. And in this case, further abroad.

Casey Stoner to make a sort of return?

The fact that Casey Stoner spent a few days lapping at Sepang at the request of HRC came as no surprise. Stoner is, after all, a fully paid-up Honda test rider, and has been put to work to help develop the Honda RC213V for this year and next. When HRC issued a press release casually mentioning that Stoner had put in a few laps on the Suzuka 8 Hour CBR1000RR endurance bike, that raised an eyebrow.
