Situated in the heart of the Fan Zone, the live commentaries of all sessions from Friday till Sunday will ensure fans not to miss anything of what is happening on track wherever they are.
New competitions such as “A Question of WorldSBK” on Friday and Saturday will give a chance to the fans to win exclusive prizes, including access to the WorldSSP grid on Sunday and a copy of the 2018 WorldSBK Yearbook. The top three riders at the end of Day One will be on stage and fans will be able to hear their reactions first.

The SuperShow on Saturday evening will welcome on stage all WorldSBK and WorldSSP riders, while the main WorldSSP300 stars will be available for autographs and selfies with the Meet & Greet sessions on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. But there is more! During the Supershow a new WorldSBK official helmet will be presented, and fans will have the chance to win it, together with other exciting prizes, in the competitions hosted by Motul.
Action will be even closer to the fans, as the parc fermé will be once again inside the paddock. Be part of the podium celebration and don’t miss the exclusive Podium Show as riders will be on stage just minutes after receiving their trophies.
