TT Assen Circuit
The BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team returns to the ‘Cathedral of Speed’. Having taken a year’s break due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the FIM Superbike World Championship is returning to the TT Circuit at Assen (NED) this coming weekend (23rd to 25th July). The fifth event of the 2021 season will take place at the historic circuit in north-eastern Netherlands. The first motorbike race in the region took place as long ago as 1925 and the permanent circuit was opened in 1955. Racers and fans are equally enthusiastic about the challenging course, which boasts high speeds and swift changes of direction.
At Assen, the BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team will be aiming to build on the successful weekend at Donington Park (GBR), where Tom Sykes (GBR) and Michael van der Mark (NED) recorded the first WorldSBK podiums for the new BMW M 1000 RR.
