Is there any hint of which circuit may be added? I think there really should be a German round, but South Africa/Kyalami would be great too! And of course there should be an American round. Laguna Seca is classic, but almost always boring races, so not my choice. Road Atlanta would be brilliant! Rode there myself once at the first GSX-R1000 launch, it was absolutely fantastic!

Given that they've scheduled SSP300 for the TBA round one might suspect that they're thinking of Europe or somewhere close by to it.

6-7 week break then 4 rounds in 5 weeks, WSBK always builds excitement then buggers off for the best part of two months, appreciate the logistics challenge but I always seem to see a large bullet hole in a large foot..

Yes Funsize it is indeed a strange schedule. Made around avoiding clashes with MotoGp & formula yawn?

7 weeks between Mandalika & Assen. A month between Barcelona & Misano. Anther month until Donington. 4 weeks between Donington & Most. 6 weeks Most to Magny-Cours then a two week wait until Aragon and Portimao back to back. Two weeks to get to Argentina and then whatever is the final round?

Plenty of room in there for a round in the US. Indianapolis or Road America. Indy was acceptable in the past. I rather like R.A. as well from watching video and computer games. Road America seems like a great circuit.

Will Qatar buy the last round in 2023? Kazakhstan might be niiiiiiice?

I don’t like how they have only one round a month, then take a long break. Really hoping for U.S. round, but not optimistic. 

There has been occasional chatter about Moto mutterers getting together at a US round. Usually this has been around the Austin GP round. Perhaps a WSBK round could also be an option? Well, that is, if there is one!
