    Legendary Californian track Laguna Seca will make a welcome return to the World Superbike calendar next year.

    The Monterey Peninsula circuit will host WSBK from next season through to 2015 and next year's race will be over the weekend of September 27. It last held the championship in 2004.

    "We are absolutely delighted to be returning to Laguna Seca for the US Round for the first time since 2004. Over the ten-year period in which we were last there, we witnessed an extraordinary growth in interest and in overall attendance and we are sure that this event will once again become one of the most prestigious on the calendar," said WSBK boss Paolo Flammini.

    "The return of Laguna Seca to the Superbike World Championship, with its six competing manufacturers, will definitely be a boost to the championship's growth in the US market as California has a special tradition and offers significant opportunities for the motorcycle industry, sponsors and media."

    perhaps an over-lap with the future 'WWD 2013' might be worth considering (hopefully I'll be in a position to join in on it next year!) ...
