Dorna and Infront Sports are squaring off to have the exclusive rights to race at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit in Valencia. The World Superbike Championship has had Valencia on their calendar since the year 2000, but they may be forced to find another venue in Spain to run their rounds.
According to one of Italy’s most read motorcycle magazine Motosprint, Dorna is trying to pose a veto against Infront in renewing their contract next year with the highly lucrative Spanish circuit.
No reasons have been given on why Dorna is taking this stance, though many are thinking that the problem may be stemming from the upcoming MotoGP 2012 series and that Moto2 is is running the same Honda CBR engine that’s in Supersport.
If Dorna is able to oust Infront out of Valencia, will they try to do the same with Phillip Island, Assen, Misano Adriatico, Silverstone and Brno racing circuits who host both MotoGP and WSBK rounds?
