The 2020 Superbike World Championship is almost underway, here’s how you can tune into the action.

As a new calendar year begins, excitement for a new season of motorsport ramps up to fever pitch.

Series such as Formula 1, MotoGP and the Superbike World Championship all emerge from hibernation at this time of year and this weekend, February 28th to March 1st, sees the opening round of the Superbike Championship get underway.

The action is set to come from Down Under for the Australian round of the championship but how can fans tune in?

After a strong start to 2019, Alvaro Bautista fell away after the first few rounds leaving Jonathan Rea to take home his 5th World Superbike title.

The pressure will no doubt be placed firmly back on Rea’s shoulders as he looks to defend his title once again.

The first round of the season sees the field take on the Philip Island Circuit in Australia over the weekend of February 28th-March 1st with Argentina’s Circuito San Juan Villicum hosting the final event of the season in October.
