Crowd figures for 2022 WorldSBK season

2022 World Superbike Championship spectator numbers


World Superbike Championship weekend spectator figures have been released for season 2022. A total of 548,275 spectators attended the 12-round series in 2022. The Motul Argentinean Round proved the most popular of the year, with 78,549 spectators.

WorldSBK Race Two at Phillip Island

The next most popular events on the calendar turned out to be the Pirelli Emilia-Romagna Round at Misano with 65,825, followed by the Prosecco DOC UK Round at Donington with 51,831 spectators, although the Indonesian and Portuguese rounds were only a few hundred off the third place position.

The season finished with a long awaited return to Phillip Island for the Grand Ridge Brewery Australian Round where 43,549 was the official attendance figure in 2022. A little down on the previous two visits but hardly surprising considering the short interval between the MotoGP and WorldSBK events at Phillip Island this year.

Arguably the most improved result was the Motul Dutch Round at the TT Circuit Assen, boasting 49,710 spectators in 2022, with 2021 and 2019 hosting under 20,000 spectators by comparison, and 2015-2018 only normally welcoming high 20’s to low 30 thousand spectator numbers.
