Circuito Estoril – Av. Alfredo César Torres
2646 – 901 Alcabideche – Portugal
The Circuito Estoril, situated just 30km from the Portuguese capital city of Lisbon, will host the WorldSBK class, along with the FIM Supersport World Championship and the FIM Supersport 300 World Championship from the 16th – 18th of October 2020.
The event will replace the Riviera di Rimini Round at the Misano World Circuit “Marco Simoncelli” as the 2020 season-ending round and will be the first time in WorldSBK history that two rounds will be held in Portugal. The track has been on the WorldSBK calendar in the past: the first year of the Championship in 1988 and in 1993, the most recent occasion. It means it is back on the WorldSBK calendar after a gap of 26 years. This is a new record: in 2013, Jerez returned to the calendar after a 22-year wait.
