Maurizio Flammini, president of Infront Motor Sports, said: “We are proud of the growth of the Superbike calendar which, thanks to the inclusion of the latest rounds, is obtaining a presence in countries of major importance for the development of our championship on a sporting and commercial level."
Previously Tinton Soeprapto, director of PT Sarana Sirkuitindo Utama - which manages the Sentul International Circuit – announced that Sentul will hosting WSBK for 3 years as on the deal.
“The contract value of one Superstars series [event] is around 3 million to 4 million euro/year or 35,65 billion rupiahs to 47,53 billion rupiahs/year. The Superbike contract is also around that value,” Tinton told Kompas.com, adding that the money was coming from private sponsors and not the government.”
