The British Superbike Championship and support series calendar has been rescheduled in a bid to let more spectators attend the races.

With this in mind the championship has pushed its calendar back.

A BSB statement read: "Promoters MSVR has been in talks with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) over recent weeks to clarify aspects of the government’s roadmap plan - in particular the capacity limits that apply to non-seated venues during step three (May 17-June 20).

"With no further information available, and the need to offer certainty to fans, series partners and stakeholders, the calendar has been updated and all events will now take place beyond June 21 – the date which provisionally marks the easing of spectator restrictions at large elite sporting events.

"Consequently the opening round of the 2021 Bennetts British Superbike Championship will now take place around a month later than previously planned."

Bennetts British Superbike Championship revised test dates: April 28-29 Silverstone National, May 4-6 Snetterton 300, May 19 Oulton Park, June 8 Donington Park National.

New Championship calendar: June 25-27 Oulton Park, July 9-11 Knockhill, July 23-25 Brands Hatch GP, July 30 - August 1 Thruxton, August 13-15 Donington Park National, August 20-22 Cadwell Park, September 3-5 Snetterton 300, September 10-12 Silverstone National, September 24-26 Oulton Park, October 1-3 Donington Park GP, October 15-17 Brands Hatch GP.
