FIM Superstock 1000 Championship

The 2013 Superbike World Championship season was the 26th season of the Superbike World Championship. It began on 24 February at Phillip Island and finished on 20 October at the Circuito de Jerez after 14 rounds. Tom Sykes has been crowned the 2013 World Superbike Champion after securing the third place finish he needed to secure a popular title victory at Jerez.

Race calendar and results[edit]

The provisional race schedule was publicly announced by the FIM on 6 October 2012 with fourteen confirmed rounds and one other round pending confirmation.[1][2] On 15 January 2013 the Indian round was moved from 10 March to 17 November.[3]

On 8 March 2013, the FIM issued a definitive calendar, confirming rounds at Portimão and Imola that were previously subject to contract, as well as introducing a round at Istanbul Park in September to complete a 15-round calendar.[4] On 14 August 2013, the Indian round was cancelled due to "operational challenges" at the Buddh International Circuit.[5] The races at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca will be held on two days; one race on Saturday, and one race on Sunday.[6]
