Description

The 2017 championship is analyzed by the authors of this classic official annual. First published to informing the public on one of the most compelling and fascinating world championships.

Among the new elements for this season is the starting grid of race two, which has been revolutionized, with the winner of the Saturday race starting from ninth place.

But the variation of the technical regulation is marginal, apart from the confirmation once more of the various other championships, which were tested over many seasons and reserved for the 1000 and 600 cc, the new entry of the small SuperSport 300 stands out.

The work of Fabrizio Porrozzi, one of the best photographers of the SBK World Championship, is displayed, along with stories from the authors.
