Bad news for World Superbike fans at Russia as the highly anticipated Russian round of WSBK, scheduled to be held at the Moscow Raceway on July 5th has been cancelled, after the event organizer, YMS Promotion, failed to provide the contract guarantees required by the contract. That has come to be a rather demoralizing news for the supporters of the Yakhnich Motorsport Team as they have also lost their slot on the 2015 World Supersport grid, which was tied in with the Russian round.

Although, the cancellation of the Russian round did not come as a surprise. The Russian WSBK round is a legacy of the last years of Infront running the series. Infront and YMS signed a ten-year deal to organize a World Superbike round in Russia, but continuing political instability in Russia, tensions between Europe and Russia over Ukraine, and murky regional politics have made it impossible to stage a race there. The round was placed on the calendar automatically, because of the existing contract, but it was never expected to actually take place.

The Russian round of World Superbikes will not be replaced. Instead, the series will run 13 rounds in 2015. Below is the updated 2015 WSBK calendar.
