Burlington, ON (February 23, 2023) — REV TV CANADA'S MOTORSPORTS & AUTOMOTIVE DESTINATION 24/7 is thrilled to welcome back the preeminent production-based motorcycle racing series, WorldSBK.
REV TV is set to broadcast all twelve rounds of the WorldSBK season, which sees a continuation of the tremendous tussle between the aptly named titanic trio of reigning champion Ducati’s Álvaro Bautista, 2021 champion Yamaha’s Toprak Razgatlıoğlu, and the most successful rider in WorldSBK Kawasaki’s Jonathan Rea. Three champions and three manufacturers all vying to reign supreme in 2023.

The first round of WorldSBK commences this weekend from historic Phillip Island in Australia. Race 1 leads the way on Friday at 11:30PM ET with Race 2 on Saturday also at 11:30PM ET.
Superbike World Championship (also known as WorldSBK, SBK, World Superbike, WSB, or WSBK) is a silhouette-class road racing series based on heavily modified production motorcycles, also known as superbike racing. The championship was founded in 1988.
Each round includes two full races making it a testament to rider and machine durability and speed. The hotly contested championship has been split between three riders representing three manufacturers the past two years and 2023 looks to maintain this incredibly competitive quality racing.
