Prize fund boost as Masters Superbikes reveals 2022 race calendar

In Ireland, News

THE Dunlop Masters Superbike Championship will return to a full calendar for the first time in three years as it announces a full programme of action for 2022.

Heading into its 13th season, a seven weekend championship will kick off with the official test days in March and continue with a race event every month between April and September.

The championship will also feature some new initiatives along with an increase in the Superbike prize-fund. For 2022 the Superbike and Supersport categories will have longer qualifying sessions and Superbike competitors will also race for an increased prize fund – a boost of 30 per cent to push the kitty to more than €1,200 per event.

A new award is also set to pit Junior riders across all categories compete against each other for the title of Young Racer of the Year.

Mondello Park will also continue to support the FIM MiniGP Ireland Series, hosting the up-and-comers for two events at the May and August rounds.

Further details of the new Dunlop Masters Superbike Championship season will be announced over the coming weeks – find out more at masterssuperbike.ie
